La caminata al Mirador Base Las Torres (o simplemente Mirador Torres) es una de las más icónicas en la patagonia chilena y probablemente la más popular dentro del Parque Nacional Torres del Paine. Permite tener increíbles vistas del Lago Torre y de los tres picos de granito que lo rodean, las famosas Torres del Paine o "torres azules". Puedes iniciar el sendero desde la zona de hoteles o desde el campamento Torres del Paine. El esfuerzo para llegar hasta el mirador vale totalmente la pena. Algunas personas realizan esta caminata como la primera parte de otros circuitos en la zona (como el circuito "W").Show more

If you have the time and want an even more complete experience in your visit to Torres del Paine National Park, you can extend the W Circuit by adding the O Circuit, which includes the entire northern part of the park, where you can enjoy a little less crowded and more scenic route. It is a challenge that you will surely not regret. Bear in mind that the weather conditions are quite changeable, so be prepared for anything. Also be sure to plan ahead, as places in lodgings and campsites tend to fill up quickly.Show more

Another of the insurmountable routes that you can take on your visit to Torres del Paine National Park is the hike from the Paine Grande Camp to the Gray glacier viewpoint. Without a doubt, the landscape it offers is spectacular: on one side, the Patagonian mountains and hills crowned by the Paine Grande hill and on the other side, Gray Lake. Upon reaching the Gray viewpoint, the majesty of the glacier will take your breath away. For those who make the "W" circuit, it is very likely that this is the last section.

This route is located in the Torres del Paine National Park, a place full of historical, cultural and natural wealth, declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO. A less popular but impressive walk to the Mirador del Cóndor (located in front of Lake Pehoé). One of the best views that can be seen in the park without having to do long walks.
