In the morning, you will be picked up from the airport or your hotel in Punta Arenas and driven to EcoCamp Patagonia, located in the world-famous Torres del Paine National Park. On the way, we will make a stop in Puerto Natales, a small, lively town on the shores of "Seno de Ultima Esperanza," where we enjoy a hearty local lunch. The journey is scenic and highly atmospheric, featuring many wild birds and wonderful Patagonian landscapes. The day ends with our arrival and overnight stay at EcoCamp Patagonia, nestled in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park and with a prime view of the majestic Torres.

Biking Epic Patagonia _1080

After breakfast, we’ll start our biking adventure. The 11 km morning bike routine follows path through different small lakes, having the chance to observe Torres del Paine's flora and fauna in all of its splendor until we arrive to Sarmiento Lake, where we will rest at this lake's beach.

Afterward, we will take a transport toward Laguna Azul, where we'll have lunch and then follow a 14 km route following a single track through Cañadón Macho, finishing at a junction with the road near Cascada Paine.

Although this excursion is not too demanding, there are some sections of the trail that have some difficulty at the point where Cañadon Macho crosses a meadow and starts climbing, followed by an undulating stretch of descent, which is a little steep and rocky.

Day 3: Kayak on Grey River

 Torres del Paine National Park

After breakfast at EcoCamp, we will head off at 7:30 AM to the Serrano area in the western sector of the park arriving at around 9 AM at Serrano Base. From here, we will board another vehicle and head to the Pingo River where we will take part in a safety talk (20 minutes approx.). Afterwards, it’s time to get into the water! Once our kayaks are in, we will move gently with the river’s current towards the Grey Lake Peninsula to see the glacier’s impressive icebergs. After enjoying the moment, it’s time to continue down the Grey River for the next 3 hours. At Puente Grey, we’ll stop to eat our box lunch before continuing downstream to the confluence of the Grey and Serrano Rivers. Around 20 minutes later we’ll return to where our adventure started, at Villa Serrano, after an amazing day on the water. Then we take the van returning to EcoCamp for our evening aperitif and meal.

Day 4: Patagonia Horseback Riding

Cabalgata Epic Patagonia 2_1080
One of the best ways to immerse yourself in the spectacular scenery of Patagonia is to ride through it on horseback with local guides. After a hearty breakfast at EcoCamp, we’ll begin around 11:30 AM with an induction talk,  before heading out on our 8 km journey. 
As you ride along the deep blue shores of Lake Nordenskjöld, the expert baqueanos will help you learn how to ride. With the wind in your hair, the sounds of the lake, and the rhythm of the horse’s strong, sturdy movements, you’ll get a feel of Patagonia and its beginnings. Creating a genuine connection with nature, you’ll feel the powerfully pure joy of the moment.
Mount Almirante Nieto and its hanging glacier will hover in the skyline and you’ll appreciate numerous viewpoints and Patagonian flora as you cross pristine rivers and dense forests on horseback. We will venture into the Asencio Valley and cross the Asencio River, where you’ll be able to appreciate an ecotone – the intersection of two distinct ecosystems. The forest and the pampas transition into one another, uniquely blending together in the middle.
After a half day taking in the sights and sounds of the area, we will head back to EcoCamp around 2 PM to get some rest and enjoy a free evening.

Day 5: Towers Base Trek

BaseTorres (32 of 1)

After a hearty breakfast we set off from Ecocamp towards Hotel Las Torres and join the uphill path to Ascencio Valley on the Tower's eastern face for a hiking and trekking experience. Dry mountain spots, beech forests and small rivers line the scenic walk towards the valley. Our bucket list big challenge comes as we climb the steep moraine, a mass of boulders leading us towards one of the world's most famous views overlooking the Towers. The famous Torres del Paine (2,850 m/ 9,350 ft) consist of three gigantic granite monoliths, the remains of a great cirque sheared away by the forces of glacial ice. After an uphill slog, the Towers eventually come into full view, rising majestically before us, with the glacial lake visible below. Is there any better place in the world to have lunch? After feasting on the view and our picnic, we backtrack along the same trail through Ascencio Valley and return to EcoCamp.

Day 6: Departure Day

We will board an early morning vehicle, sit back, relax and enjoy a scenic ride back to Puerto Natales or Punta Arenas in time to catch an evening flight onwards. Alternatively, transportation to El Calafate can also be organised.
