Torres del Paine and Patagonia

untouched forests, vivid turquoise lakes, raging rivers, immense peaks

The spectacularly wild Chilean Patagonia is best known for its sublime scenery and as a haven for the avid adventurer. Its home to untouched forests, vivid turquoise lakes, raging rivers, immense peaks and Torres del Paine – one of the finest national parks across South America.

Located in the south of Chilean Patagonia, the Torres del Paine National Park is one of the country’s greatest highlights and a designated UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. It may be rugged and remote, but the journey far south will prove worth the effort once you get your first glimpse of the distinctive peaks of the mighty Paine Massif.

These soaring granite pillars are the centrepiece of the park, but they are just one of many natural wonders. You’ll also find great glaciers, fantastical geological formations and dazzling mirror-like lakes such as the serene Lake Sarmiento. As well as boasting one of the world’s most impressive landscapes, the park also supports unique wildlife species like armadillos, pumas, foxes, guanacos and a myriad of interesting birds.

Torres del Paine seems to have been made for outdoor adventure, with no shortage of ways to get under the skin of this pristine wilderness. You can kayak across iceberg-strewn lakes, go on unforgettable horse rides or enjoy trekking with a professional guide to soak up the park’s ethereal beauty.

Our tailor-made, luxury trips to Chile’s Torres del Paine showcase the very best of what this stunning park has to offer.
