Day 4

place Full day Visit to Torres del Paine National Park (Chile)

FULL DAY Travelling north south through the Patagonian steppe we arrive at the Argentinean/Chilean border crossing called Cancha Carrera until we have access to Torres del Paine National Park. The first panoramic viewpoint is to enjoy Lago Sarmiento and the whole Paine mountain range at the back. Once there, we descend making different stops to observe the exceptional surrounding mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, and lakes within the abundant nature and fauna, such as foxes, guanacos among others. (because of the panoramic windows of the vehicles, this can sometimes be enjoyed without descending). Then, an easy walk is done, which is not demanding. Depending on the group, passengers 68 can also make a more demanding tour with the guides (authorized by CONAF, Chile). In Laguna Amarga, the 4x4 vehicles take us over the Laguna coast to access the best viewpoint which offers magnificent views of the mountains, where you can see the imposing Torres del Paine. We make a stop here to take a short walk. After this, we continue towards Cascada Paine where we enjoy a picnic over Rio Pane shore, enjoying the view of Las Torres. This lunch is made outdoors, protected by the vegetation and the Overland tracks. Lunch boxes are included and they are really generous.
