Journey to Mighty Glaciers in Torres

The landscapes of Torres del Paine are a haven for trekkers. That’s why we’ve compiled a mighty six day trip which includes four whole days of trekking through mountain valleys, past rugged peaks and around stunning glacier lakes. Stay in shared dorms with fellow trekkers and swap stories from the day’s adventures.

Wind your way through Volcano Valleys

Over the course of six days, zig-zag your way from Temuco, through Pucon, over to Puyehue and finally arriving in Puerto Varas – this is the scenic alternative to the Pan-American Highway. Instead you’ll drive along the back roads, stopping off along the way to gaze in awe at active volcanoes, expansive lakes and ancient woodlands. With plenty of opportunity to add a spot of hiking along the way. During the trip we have arranged a day’s hike up the famous Villarica Volcano in Pucon.
