  • Winter Wildlife Safari: (4- 7 Days): This is one of our most popular EcoCamp experiences! During winter, travelers can pick from one of two daily activities. Through each excursion, you will discover the park’s remarkable viewpoints and admire local fauna. Please note that during this season, we only have excursions available from Tuesday to Saturday. Click here to view our daily activities.

  • Winter W Trek (7 Days): Take on a wilder, more adventurous version of Patagonia’s classic W Trek. Along with cozy nights at EcoCamp, you will camp out along the trail and visit iconic scenery, such as the base of the Towers or the French Valley. Travelers also have the option to learn about the basic principles of “leave no trace” and earn a certificate! Keep in mind that this trek is a bit more challenging during the winter season and snowshoes are advised! 

  • Patagonian Winter Adventure — EcoCamp Extension (3 Days)Explore the beauty of the Magallanes region before or after your time at EcoCamp Patagonia. This is a great option for travelers who want to see Torres del Paine, as well as the surrounding areas in Chilean Patagonia. The itinerary includes a kayaking excursion, trekking and an opportunity to admire ancient cave paintings.


Why You Should Come in Winter

There are plenty of reasons why winter is the best time of year to visit Torres del Paine! For starters…

Glacier Patagonia

  • It’s absolutely stunning! Imagine snow-capped mountains, crystal blue lakes and quiet forests that are all surrounded by a blanket of white, icy terrain. Don’t believe us? Check out 13 Beautiful Photos of Patagonia in Winter to see for yourself! 

  • Shy fauna come out to play! You have a better chance of spotting wildlife with fewer travelers in the park. Keep your eyes peeled for colorful birds, foxes, pumas and huemules (native deer).

  • Patagonia is your own personal playground! The park is practically empty around this time of year. That means you can enjoy the landscapes and hiking trails without any crowds. It’s great for people who are looking for a peaceful and remote experience. 

  • It’s perfect for true adventurers! The weather is colder and the conditions are rougher — but it is all part of the Patagonia winter experience. Wintertime is a dream for those looking for a rugged, outdoor vacation.
