The 'W' trek is the name given to the W-shaped beaten track that interlinks the 3 Granite Paine Towers, the French Valley, and the Grey Glacier. The trek is approximately 70 kilometers (43 miles) in total distance and is one of the most scenic treks in the world.
The Active W Trek program is a popular multi-day adventure program for those that want a more challenging and shorter version of the W. You can prepare and do the W trek on your own, however doing it with us will save you time, and your Patagonia visit will be well organized and efficient. Our reservation team will be initially assisting you in understanding your program and will guide you in your plans. We will then be advising you in your logistical and physical preparations. And when you finally arrive here, in Puerto Natales, our Garden Domes hotel team will host you and provide trek briefings. The next day, our Chiletour team of guides and drivers will be assisting you on your first day as you get to know Torres del Paine for the first time, and after your Base of the Tower hike you will stay at the Tiny House right at the bottom portion of the Paine Massif where you will have one most beautiful views of the Paine Towers.
Our many years of accumulated experience, wisdom, and energy, our local team's knowledge of the land and our nature-inspired boutique hotel facility, are just some of the reasons why it is worthwhile doing this most famous trek and adventure of a lifetime with us!
