Tour description provided by Viator

Embark on a 14-hour advanced hike with a friendly and professional guide to one of Patagonia's most amazing adventures. Spend a day trekking to the base of the Paine Towers. Hike to the granite pillars of Torres del Paine National Park that dominate the surrounding landscape, which are incredibly mesmerizing and surreal in shape and form. Travel worry-free on this small-group tour that is limited to 7 participants per guide for more immediate attention to each individual guest. This tour includes lunch, hotel pickup and drop-off, as well as radio and satellite communication for emergencies.
Start your journey with hotel pickup at 06:20am - 07:00am to meet your guide before heading to the national park (1.5 hours travel). Proceed with your park entrance ticket (not included) to another gateway just before the Hotel Las Torres, where your trek to Mirador Las Torres will commence.During the duration of this 18km trek you will see fantastic views of Lake Nordenskjöld and Almirante Nieto Mountain, as well as enjoy a downhill walk towards the Valle del Ascencio, until you reach El Chileno Mountain Lodge. The trial continues through a Millenial Lenga forest  until you reach the base of “the moraine” where you will begin a challenging ascent (45 - 75 minutes). This will eventually take you to one of the most impressive places in the park. Capture images of the Base of Torres del Paine for panoramic views of Torre Sur, Torre Central, Torre Norte and Cerro Nido de Cóndor. Once you are done sightseeing and enjoying the beauty that Torres Del Paine has to offer, walk down to Hotel Las Torres. Relax and rest your legs as you are driven back to your hotel in Puerto Natales.NOTICE: The trek to the base of the towers is an advanced hike.  There is altitude gain on parts and uneven terrain for the majority of the trek.  We recommend that you are in good physical condition before undertaking this trek.  This is strenuous hike with steep inclines up and down. If you have, or have you ever been told by a doctor that you had: epilepsy, high blood pressure, heart or lung disease, heart murmur or pacemaker, asthma, colitis or intestinal trouble, ulcers or stomach trouble, diabetes, any significant back, foot, hip, or leg problems, or any other disease or condition,  or other significant illness, then you are not qualified to join the hike.  You need to contact costumer service first to clarify,  before booking.
