The concept of our W BaseCamp is to cover the best trails of the W circuit, Grey Glacier Navigation and other amazing trails in Torres del Paine! Some of them are not part of the original W, so you will get to see a lot!

I wanted to do the W Circuit but was late booking and i found this Basecamp Trip! 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.
