Backpacking

First multi-night trek I ever did, and I decided to do it unguided and carrying all my own things. Faced authentic discomfort and was the single-most life changing experience I've ever undertaken. Learnt things about myself, felt real satisfaction and faced big challenges. You truly feel one with nature here. Very well trafficked, great facilities and never far from another person but not too overcrowded due to the person cap. Should be a bucket-list trek for anyone interested in this type of activity. My only advice; do the O! (Note: Done in Nov 2019)

This was probably my favorite hike on the circuit - make sure you keep going all the way to the top. Super special hike

Did the trail in december. Best hike I've ever done. Give plenty of time for the hike because the towers can be obscured by fog. We waited ~30 minutes for the fog to clear up. Definitely go.

Most beautiful hiking I’ve done. Campgrounds were so remote, it was amazing to be so disconnected and within nature. A destination I would return to any day.

Awesome trek. Got lucky with the weather. A slight rain the first morning and hardly any wind. We camped at Grey , Francis and central . Not like backpacking the AT because every night you have food drink and showers available at the campgrounds. Highlight was the towers. No wind and not a cloud in the sky it was unbelievable!!! We were there the first week of March 2020.

This trail is also the first part of “Horns Lookout Trail”. There is a small parking lot at the trail head.

Amazing 5 days walking the W from West (Grey/Paine Grande) to East (Central). A bit windy around Paine Grande to Grey, had some clouds and fog up the Frances valley with poor visibility, but very clear around Torres and mild temps the whole trip. Didn't have reservations either so if you have your own gear or if your hiring everything, it's easy to find sites if you get to a site relatively early in the afternoon. If not, seems easy to sneak in and stealthily set up among the other campers

Last day of the W trek. Only to the first view of Grey Glacier as the wind was a bit blustery.

We hiked this route in nice weather and after doing the Towers Base trail the day before, it was a welcome respite from the crowds. There were several big tour groups on the trail, but once we separated from those, it became a peaceful walk until we reached Italiano Camp and beyond. It's an easy trail with views of the lakes until you turn the corner and begin going up the valley and the views became more interesting. It was muddy in several areas. The payoff of the hike is a little above Camp Italiano, where you can sit on a rock outcropping and look at the receding glacier up the valley before turning around. To start this hike, you must take the catamaran from Refugio Pudeto, which crosses the lake periodically throughout the day. Here's my best tip for you. If you need to be on the first sailing from Pudeto at 9 am, be sure to be there, in line, no later than 8 a.m. Although this boat holds 100 ppl, there are about 4 trails that go from Refugio Paine Grande, so it gets full. We arrived in line at 8:10 and barely got on board. You don't need to pay before boarding. Once underway, a guy opens his little kiosk down below and you purchase your tickets there. You'll need the tickets to be let off at Refugio Paine Grande. We were able to reach Italiano and return in time to catch the 5 pm return trip to Pudeto. All in all, it was a nice hike, but not nearly as impressive as the Towers Base hike. Also, there's no need to hire a guide for any of these hikes. Signage is excellent and easy to understand, and the trails are well-marked and well-worn! My inexact app showed mileage at 10.45 and actual hiking time of 5:46.

A 5-Star hike but the crowd costs it a star. We got a late start...around 9 am and I highly agree with the suggestions of others to start as early as possible. If this is your first hike in the park, be aware that you'll have 30 minutes to an hour+ still to go once you enter the park, depending on your location. If possible, stay in the park the night before to ensure an early arrival at the trail head. We had good weather and could have hiked in shorts if we had them. :-) However, be sure to bring a shell if you plan to spend any time at the towers...and you should. My total hiking time was 7:43. That was less dependent on my conditioning and more a factor of the volume of people at the various bottlenecks along the upper part. At times, you'll have to wait your turn to get through a narrow point, both going up an down. This is an iconic hike that should be on everyone's bucket list. Just know that it's not for those who like to hike in solitude...you'll have plenty of friends along with way.

Our planned boat ride to Glacier Grey was canceled due to 70 kph winds, so for something to do to stretch our legs after flying in the day before, we decided to do this short hike. We unknowingly drove to Guarderia Grey, so that shortened our hike a bit. It's an easy walk across a gravel bar to the island, then a loop around the island and back. What made it interesting for us was the wind. At 70 kph (~43mph) with gusts higher, people were being blown off their feet as they staggered to and from the island.

A brilliant and rewarding hike. aim to arrive and start as early as possible as it gets busy with the bus tours. The reviews that break this hike down into 3 parts are totally right. A bit of a pull up the first climb, a woodland undulating walk, then a hard pull up the boulders. fresh water is available from the refugio about a third of the way up (start of the woodland section) with toilets, showers and even food and drink available. park fees need to be paid on arrival. The welcome centre at the start of the trail is very modern with food and drink.

A great starting walk for anyone exploring the park. There is parking at the base (very near the campsite) whixh leads straight onto the trail. A couple of climbs (the first climb feels tougher than the last climb) but manageable by all. A short and sweet walk with amazing panoramic views from the top.
