    The Torres del Paine Full Circuit in Chile's Patagonia is a MUST for outdoors fanatics.  Why do the short W circuit and miss out on the lesser hiked portion of the trail which affords you the best scenery and atmosphere minus the crowd?  This trip will allow you to experience the entire circuit as you walk the entire length of it.  In doing the complete circuit, you will see the lesser visited parts of Patagonia with a bit of roughing it as you experience the outdoors in tents! You will have an experienced local guide during your trek and a trip leader for the 14 day itinerary. You can combine your visit to Patagonia with a few days in Santiago, a visit to Easter Island or Atacama Desert as possible trip additions to your trip.

    This trek is STRENUOUS given the elevation gain and loss and the possible low temperatures. You must be physically fit, in good health, and preferably with recent backpacking/hiking experience.  You will be carrying your personal items including tent, sleeping bag and mat, snacks, etc. Consider this trek as a lighter version of backpacking and a more advanced version of day hiking.  Although you will need to carry your tent, sleeping bag and mat, you don't need to carry 8 days worth of food as breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided each day.

    Please note that we will be staying in tents during the trek and hostels/guesthouses in Santiago, Punta Arenas and Puerto Natales.
