No wind today, just rain!

Day 3 - Frances > Paine Grande via Brittanico. Amazing 360 degree views of rugged mountains and glaciers

Nice hike with good views, on a good weather day you can visualize the glacier that is 15km away, weather conditions can be harsh. Get to see beautiful icebergs and cross a strong suspension bridge

Incredible experience. Got caught in a snow storm on New Year’s Eve! Can get very windy, tie down your tent first or it may blow away! Can be done comfortably in 3 days

we only visit the cave. The trail was not clear and the weather turned bad so we left

I only managed to get 2/3 of the way up as the last part was too steep for someone who has a fear of heights. My husband went all the way to the top and said it was extremely windy but amazing view.

1/3/2019 Amazing hike! Video’d a pretty big avalanche on the way up! It was far away so it didn’t scare us, but it was awesome to witness a real avalanche. The W-Trek is a great adventure for all ages with good knees and hips! Bring a rain jacket/pants & wind breaker, beanie & water proof gloves. Used it all on these trails...like everyone says here, you experience 4 seasons in 1 day, no joke! And if you don’t know already, IT’S SUPER WINDY HERE! A buff is another great item to have handy.

Great views of the Fitz Roy peak and El Chalten town for a relatively short hike. The trail is mostly sandy with relatively quick elevation gain but is clear and easy to walk and follow. We only went to the Mirador Condores and not Aguilas. The summit was quite windy. This would be a great place for sunrise photos as the peaks appear warm and coppery; sunset is backlit but also fun to watch as the shadows lengthen across the town. We also drove to the information center at the foot of the hill near midnight to watch the stars since there is less light pollution than in town.

Extremely windy walk along the Grey Lake beach. You get a great view of a piece of calved glacier sitting relative close to shore while the Grey Glacier is very distantly in the background. If you walk to the eastern edge of the trail before it turns north, this is where the glacial ice gets washed ashore - you can pick up pieces on the beach. Just don’t get blown away!! FYI, the trail head is at the end of the road, not at the Lago Grey hotel that is under development. There is a nice cafe at both the hotel-to-be, as well as at the trail head.

Fantastic hike with amazing views along the way! We had great weather (dry, sunny, chilly) but it was super windy along the top and was quite dangerous at times. We extended this route to make longer when other connecting trails became clear. Would highly recommend, not too difficult but some challenging ascents that are worth the climb!!

Very steep climb to top of ridge essentially without switchbacks. view of the Paine Massif from the top is extraordinary. also great views into the Patagonia icefield. i don't know how it got labeled as an "Easy" hike. It's not. it's short, but the climb up is hard. Totally worth it, though.

Very nice, easy and peaceful walk.

Can be very windy. The glacier looks like an ice cube compared to glacier Perito Moreno but the walk on the peninsula is nice and makes you feel you walk on a beach.

Amazing hike. It’s an easy hike without the winds. We had 80km/hr winds hitting us and that was the most difficult. We were here on Jan 2018 and we were told that during their winter, there’s less chances of wind but it’ll be colder with snow. U get to see the view of the horns, base Torres and different peaks at the top - weather permitting. Your first view will be the amazing waterfall. Warning: This place would not be recommend for little kids because winds would absolutely blow your kids away! :)

We did all 3 aves, the viewpoint to see condors and over to Silla de Diablo to make the most of the area. Peaceful and not crowded. All very easy.

Even with 85+km wind gusts or maybe because of them this was a great and exhilarating hike to a viewpoint that is nice but not awe inspiring. It’s more on the easy than moderate side. Without wind it would definitely be easy. Starts with a pretty waterfall. Not at all crowded when we went in the late morning.

The wind was howling but that made it an experience. Take the time to do this. The view IS Torres del Paine!

Moderate ups and downs here to get to the wonderful stromatolites, bacterial formations that date back almost 3.5 billion years, some of planet earth’s oldest living things. Beautiful turn around - with the Devil’s Horns right there to greet you.

Did a longer version of this hike that incorporated three caves. Very beautiful, real darkness, interesting flora along the relatively flat trails between. Milodon Cave is largest and most tourists cave. Interesting natural history.
