Day 3 : Fauna Trail Hike

This trail is particularly interesting as it passes through one of the most extensive bioclimatic areas in the park, the pre-Andean xerophilous scrubland, here found in a practically pure state. This is an ideal hike to observe wildlife and you may encounter gray foxes, guanacos and ñandú (rheas). It is the puma’s hunting ground and many traces of hunting can be seen. You will also be able to visit caves with prehistoric paintings dated at from before the Tehuelche period, or around 6,500 to 6,000 years old. An experience rich in Nature, history and moderate exercise!

Day 4 : Torres Base Trek

Visiting: Torres del Paine

A deservedly famous and highly demanding excursion. After crossing the Ascensio River you will walk uphill around 2.5 km until reaching Pasos del Viento pass at about 480 meters above sea level (masl), with a beautiful panoramic view of the pampa, the lakes to the south and the Ascensio Valley itself. From there you will descend to the Refugio Chileno shelter. Up to that point vegetation is that of the pre-Andean scrubland bioclimate; from then on vegetation changes completely and as you climb you will penetrate the ancient lenga tree forests until you reach the Torres Glacier moraine at 600 masl. Once out of the forest a final push of around 45 minutes of continuous uphill climbing will take you to the Torres Base at 870 masl, where you will behold directly in front of you the three massive granite giants, the best reward to your efforts!

Throughout the trek you will observe fauna such as condors, mora eagles, caranchos and other birds of prey.
