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 W Alternative program is a popular option for those who want to have a more relaxed and less demanding adventure program. This is ideal for those on honeymoon, a family vacation, or those that want to have a less demanding nature adventure, and yet you will still be able to see the main highlights of the W trail, mainly, the Base of the tower, French Valley and the Grey Glacier. And during this challenging time, we value highly your privacy, and personal safety and we want to make sure that your adventure is smooth and hassle-free. For this program, we offer a premium version where all your trek will be private with the same guide/driver accompanying you and your meals can be served directly to your Dome or Cabin when in Puerto Natales and we can set up a table for private dining when you are staying at our Tiny House. This ability to give you a more private, intimate, and safer atmosphere is what makes our program unique and ideal for today's vacation trend.
Our reservation team will initially assist 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.
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 worth while doing this most famous trek and adventure of a lifetime with us!
