      About this trip

      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 Classic W Trek program is our most popular  multi-day adventure program.  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's 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 be staying at a refuge or mountain shelter dormitory, near the welcome center, 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 at Puerto Natales, are just some of the reasons why it is worth while doing this most famous trek and adventure of a lifetime with us!

      We had an incredible experience on the W Winter Trek with ChileTour Patagonia. The entire crew, including Ricci, Jose, Rodrigo, Maddy, and others, treated us exceptionally well. A special thanks to our guide Jose, whose professionalism and passion for his work truly stood out. Exploring the park with someone as dedicated and enthusiastic as Jose made the trip unforgettable. I highly recommend this experience :)

      The trip was great and the organization from ChileTour Patagonia was excellent. They were very responsive and addressed all our questions. All the members we met were very friendly and happy to help us. Even when there was a change in one day's schedule due to external factors, they organized and provided an alternative for us for that day. The mountain guides we had in the first day were also great, very friendly and knowledgeable about the place. Garden domes, where we stayed for the first and last night (in Puerto Natales) is a beautiful place, and the cabin that we stayed in the first day of the trek was also very cosy. They provided all transport and the van was comfortable and with a good driver. El Brisket where we had dinner on those days had nice atmosphere and good food. Breakfast and lunch boxes provided were also very tasty and with lots of food. Last but not least, the price is very good for the package offered. Loved the experience and would totally recommend ChileTour Patagonia and this Trek.

      We had a wonderful time. Given the age (minimum close to 50, and max is over 70) and hiking experience in our group, Ricci go way beyond what I expected a tour company would do to take care of their client. Due to the size of our group, there was a small hick ups prior to the trip. Ricci not only solve the problem, but made the trip even better than I was expected. The food prepared by Ricci's restaurant is fantastic!! W-Trek is a life time experience for us, and I definitely will recommend Ricci to our family and friends who want to hike in the beautiful Patagonia!

      Had a great trek. Unexpected extras such as first day guide, parkside private cabins and final day pizza party really added value to our experience! I completely endorse and recommend this trek to anyone looking for a fantastic W trek experience.!

      We had a fantastic trip! We were a little nervous as we were not entirely sure what we were doing, and communication had slowed down after booking, but all that stress was for nothing! They really under sell themselves. The food was amazing and all the accommodation was awesome. We did the w-trek alternative, staying in a cabin at the garden domes, a private cabin the first night in the park, and a fricken amazing hotel the 2nd night in the park (hotel lago grey). We had amazing guides and drivers. Also, as we were catching a bus to El Calafate at 7am, the owner Ritchie found out we had no plans, and hooked us up with an awesome guide, who met us at the Calafate station. If anything let's this company down, it's some communication issues (very much a south America thing) and not letting you know how awesome they are.

      We traveled in January 2024 with ChileTour Patagonia on the W Trek Classic, we highly recommend them! From Eason's introductory email and checklist, to Gonzalo's attention to detail in making our trek arrangements easy, and Ricci's hospitality with our welcome and farewell dinners, everything was handled so you can concentrate on the trek. All the lodges were good, we especially loved our cabin after the first day of hiking, as our party had it all to ourselves! For what you pay, ChileTour Patagonia was a great value, and we would recommend any travelers to the Torres del Paine National Park make ChileTour Patagonia your first stop!

      We had such a wonderful time hiking the W, but that will happen regardless of how you book this trek. What Ricci and his crew do is; bend over backwards to make one feel welcome and at home. We were greeted with smiles off our bus from El Calafate, taken to awe inspiring views and a cup of tea at the garden domes and then gathered together to make a new little trekking family through a delicious meal at their restaurant Le Brisket. Coming off the trail was just as relaxing and refreshing, but most importantly filled with pizza! I would 100% work with this crew again and recommend them to all my friends and family. Not always prompt, but if you contact them through Whatsapp they will get back to you! There are a lot of moving pieces that the ChileTour crew is always juggling because they fits their service to the groups coming in; and all the problems that can arise from different people coming from different directions. However, I always trusted and they always provided everything we needed. Just reach out to them!
