Torres Patagonia Lodge 4-Night Itinerary

Strategically situated at the foot of the majestic Torres del Paine mountain range, and close to the park’s legendary hiking trails, Las Torres Patagonia Lodge serves as the perfect activity base for exploring the area’s host of natural wonders. Whether you crave to witness the drama of a calving glacier or take a long horseback ride across the pampas, the Las Torres Patagonia Lodge provides both full-day and half-day excursions that will fulfill your need for adventure in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park. In fact, each traveler, couple or group can select their own excursions according to their own rhythm and particular interests. For example, this 5-day/4-night excursion is designed for enjoying a range of themes within the national park – from the park’s fauna, wildlife and geology, to the culture of the region’s indigenous people and gauchos. The lodge’s full- and half-day excursions include various modes of transportation, including hiking, horseback riding, 4x4 safaris and boat trips. Last but not least, these excursions vary from easy to difficult – depending on your fitness and expertise. On all excursions, you will be accompanied by an experienced guide or baqueano (gaucho), who will share their knowledge of Patagonia and bring vivid color to those “little things” that are generally overlooked.


“Everything went off without a hitch. Accomodation was just what we wanted. Clean, great location and within our budget. The dive master was great. ”Sarah Darwin

Day 2
Lenga Forest Hiking – Horseback Riding with the Gauchos of Patagonia

AM: For those people interested in learning more about Patagonia's famous Lenga forests, this morning’s Lenga Forest excursion can be a hike along part of the park’s “Circuit Trail,” around the eastern edge of the massif. This will take you to the final destination: An old-growth Lenga forest that provides a habitat for many animals. During this excursion there’s a good chance to spot Magellanic woodpeckers, Austral parakeets, Chilean flickers and other forest small birds. Also keep an eye out for pumas (the so-called “Andean Lion”), which roam this forest. In addition, the trail features great views of Laguna Azul Lake and Cerro Paine, on the eastern side of the massif.

PM: This afternoon you will learn the ways of the Patagonian cowhand by spending time with baqueanos (gauchos), who lead the Las Torres Lodge horseback treks. During your time with these local range riders — the descendants of real-life ranches hands — you will learn about their special clothing, their saddles and other horse tacks, as well as get a chance to share mate (an herbal tea made from yerba mate leaves). These baqueanos will also demonstrate how to properly saddle and shoe a horse, and of course how to ride. By the end of this cowhand adventure, you'll have a clear understanding of what it was like to live and work in this remote corner of South America in days past.
