"This landscape of blue, green and silver, of granite spires, glaciers, lakes, mountains and daisy-filled meadows, robs you of words. I quote Gerard Manley Hopkins to myself, the nearest I can get to doing justice to the view beyond the tent's opening flap: "The world is charged with the grandeur of God…" – words that could have been written for this place".Kate Kellaway from The Observer.
The W Trek has become an icon of Patagonia and encapsulates some of the most dramatic parts of this amazing geological wonder. Within the southern tip of the South American continent, the Paine landscape has been dramatically sculpted by ferocious winds from Antarctica, powerful glaciers and the ever shifting continental plates. For you as the trekker, you will be witness to a rugged and spectacular landscape, dominated by jagged peaks and enormous glaciers.
Our expeditions run between October and March each year as this is when the area is accessible after the frigid winter. However nights can still get cold. Our expedition starts and ends in the acclaimed Eco Camp Patagonia where we will stay on nights 1, 3 and 4. This 5 day trip takes in all the best of the park for those that have more exploring of South America in their itinerary.
