We have options: lodging only in campsites, only in shelters and combining both. The W Circuit is much better prepared, always giving the option of sleeping in shelters or well-equipped cabins. There are restaurants, small shops, WIFI and first class cabins.
Differences between the W and the O?
If you check the maps of each circuit you will see that the W is also part of the O Circuit, so if you dare to do the latter you will do both circuits. In the W Circuit you visit the main attractions of Torres del Paine National Park, it is less time and bearable than the O. Review here the options of the O Circuit that we have for you. This circuit is more advanced and you will need a higher physical demand, but without a doubt it is an unforgettable experience.
We want to talk to you, get to know you, know what you need and thus be able to help you choose the best alternatives for your trip. The interesting thing is that we offer you different alternatives to connect all the points of the W Circuit: you can start sailing by the Grey Lake, arriving directly to the Las Torres Refuge, leaving by the beautiful waters of the Pehoé Lake to arrive to Pudeto, place where it is possible to take the bus back to Puerto Natales and several other combinations, which will allow you to create an unforgettable memory of this incredible experience.
In short, there are 5 days in which we will cover different stretches that you will love according to your choice at the time of purchase. We will take you through the vast Patagonian plains to different refuges that adjoin the main attractions of the park: lenga forests, the base of the towers, trails where the sky of Lake Nordenskjöld contrasts abruptly with the diverse range of green flora of the place, hanging glaciers, you can witness the impressive avalanches, the immensity of nature at unimaginable levels. You will get to know Grey Lake, its glacier, places where the mountain range, the water, the iceberg and the sand merge into a shocking picture. Without a doubt, a trip that will be unforgettable, unpredictable and majestic. In addition, as many say, you will feel a personal satisfaction of internal growth after traveling more than 60 kilometers during 5 days of trekking, an achievement that you will never forget.
If your dream is to come to Torres del Paine and know the main wonders of this national park, the W Circuit is ideal. Together with GreatChile, our official tour operator in Torres del Paine, we will travel together for 5 days about 70 kms of intense trekking.
