Travel to Torres del Paine

by dclair

Do you know if one can go from P. Arenas to Torres del Paine in one day by bus. I assume that you would have to change buses in P. Natales - yes?

Thanks so much,

David

I saw your earlier posting saying that it was 3-4 hours from P. Arenas to P. Nantes. I also saw someone else's posting that said from P. Nantes to Torres del Paine is 4-5 hours [which seems like a long time].

I wanted to find out if you can easily do both in a day and go from P. Arenas to Torrers del Paine in ONE day.

Thanks,

As said:
- bus from Punta Arenas to Puerto Natales takes 3 hours.
- bus from Puerto Natales to Torres del Paine takes 2 till 3 hours, depending on your destination in Torres.

Indeed you have to change buses in Puerto Natales.

So, do we have to reserve buses? How do we do that?

I'll be travelling from Puerto Natales to TDP in December, but would like to know if I need to reserve things in advance.

You can make reservations as soon as you will arrive in Pt. Natales with one of the companies servicing Torres del Paine.

Travel Tips for Puerto Natales

Horseback riding up the torres

by galy

If the 7 km' walk uphill to the Torres Base, is too much for you, you still don't have to give up. There is the possibility of horseback riding up to a certain point and a walk up to the lookout point.
Excrusions are going out of Hosteria Las Torres, every day. Contact them for more information Their website:

Torres del Paine

by perfectly_zen

Torres del Paine is opened all the year, but usually the best time to visit the place is in the summer, unless you are very experienced and prepared to deal with snow (that´s not my case, i´m from the tropics...hehehehe). The problem of going in the low season is that a part of the part, usually the part near Torres may be covered in lots of snow, so if you don´t have the necessary equipment the guard will advise you not to visit those parts...
The park is very organized, with camping sites, refuges etc.

TORRES DEL PAINE : SUGGESTED ROUTE A / DAY 3

by swesn

DAY 3 : Leaving your tent and main backpack at CAMP ITALIANO, hike up the route to Valle de Frances or The French Valley with your day-pack. It takes about 3.5 hours.

First, you walk along the beautiful river with the melting glacier from the amazing mountain at the top. The route will ultimately get you BEHIND this mountain.

The hike up is mostly sheltered through the woods. Follow the marker as at some points, the route is not obvious. Finally, you reach CAMP BRITANICO.

You will soon arrive at an open flat space surrounded nearly 300 degrees by gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous string of mountains. Spin round and round here. It is a magnificent view.

You need about 30 minutes of more hiking to reach the Mirador. There is a fantastic, breath-taking view there but there is not much room available. Savour the ecstasy of reaching this point.

The route back to CAMP ITALIANO is the same.

If you are up for it, pack up your tent and walk 2.5 hours through marshy flat grounds to CAMP PEHOE.

Total hiking time = about 9-10 hours

Torres del Paine - Cuernos del Paine

by perfectly_zen

Those mountains are amazing...they look like they have been sculpted by a hammer or something... "Cuernos" means "horns".
There are basicly three peaks: the Cuerno Principal, with 2600m, the Cuerno Norte, with 2400, and the Cuerno Este, with 2200m. In the trekking you´ll have a chance to see them from many angles. But that post card image of the Cuernos is visible from lake Pehoe on boat, from Hotel Explora, and from Camping Pehoe.
