A great option if you missed your W trek bookings!

In addition, you will enjoy the experience of getting very close to Grey Glacier on a beautiful catamaran boat.

You will camp all the nights at our amazing BaseCamp, with huge tents where you can stand inside and 20cm thick mattresses, towels and even pillows! So, it’s very comfortable (it’s more like glamping). You won’t sacrifice any comfort!

Our W BaseCamp is located on the shores of Pehoe Lake, certainly, a very quiet place with unique views of Paine Massif.

I would recommend to everyone to do this Torres del Paine hiking trip that is life-changing. Besides a little of leg pain everything else was a bliss: the fresh air, gorgeous scenery, but most importantly, all people we met along the way. We were late on our W trek bookings and so we chose this trip and it was SO amazing!!
