Exploradus is proud to offer this unique trekking expedition of the O Circuit in Torres del Paine.
Imagine traveling to the majestic and unspoiled wilds of Patagonia. This is the real Paine trek, the unspoiled gem! Gazing upon the towering, steeple-like peaks of this spectacular landscape will give you the impression you have journeyed to the ends of the earth. Experience the untouched landscapes of Magellanic forests, a rich array of wildlife, and enough glaciers each day to lose count.
The Circuit includes the world famous “W” trek, but it also goes around the Massif exploring some of the wildest areas in the park. This is perfect for physically active trekkers, not hardcore mountaineers. Paine Towers, Paine Horns, French Valley, Grey Glacier, Dickson Lake, Los Perros Glacier, and the Southern Patagonian Ice Field are some of the incredible highlights.
Full itinerary coming soon.
