The W Trek is one of the most famous, and arguably beautiful, of South America. It normally takes 5 days/4 nights and it is easily done self-guided. The most economical option is camping, and it is the one we are proposing in the featured itinerary. If you prefer, we can arrange sleepovers in the mountain lodges and we can also add a guide if you so prefer. It can be trekked all year round although winter will present extra challenges due to the weather conditions that here in Patagonia can be extremely unpredictable. Bear in mind that in winter it is compulsory to have a guide, and rightly so.
During the high season between mid-November to February it can be quite busy so we suggest travelling to Torres del Paine in the shoulder seasons if you want less hikers and tourists.
No matter when or how you decide to do it, the W Trek is a wonderful achievement and a beautiful hike amongst some of the world’s most beautiful landscapes.
