DAY 6 - Torres del Paine

Your tour begins with a car ride to Estancia Laguna Amarga, where mountain bike are waiting.

Pedal away towards the Laguna Azul campsite, meeting with the the fauna of Patagonian plains like guanacos
and ostrich-like ñandús, and even maybe a puma if you’re lucky. As you head north, you’ll reach the Paine waterfall

on the outward journey). Back at EcoCamp the cyclists reunite with their Safari hiking counterparts to enjoy the evening aperitif.
 
Breakfast, lunch, dinner and overnight at Patagonia Eco Camp.

DAY 7 - Torres del Paine

After breakfast at EcoCamp, we will head off at 9am to Grey Lake in the western sector of the park, about a two hour drive away. We cross the glacier lake in a boat, during which you will get to enjoy views of the Paine massif in addition to the impressive glacier which forms part of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field. Near the glacier we leave our boat and spend our day kayaking on the Grey Lake! But before we jump into our kayaking gear (neoprene suit, waterproof-jacket, gloves, life jacket, spray skirt and boots) and get into our group kayaks, we will have a safety briefing. Then we paddle out into the lake and head towards the eastern face of the glacier! Navigating our way in between gigantic floating icebergs, eventually we come almost face-to-face with the mighty wall of the glacier itself. Your guide will offer you a snack and hot drink to replenish your energies, while you admire the immensity of the iceberg and its myriad shades of blue. Then we take the boat back passing the glacier, before we board the van returning to EcoCamp for our evening aperitif and meal.
 
Breakfast, lunch, dinner and overnight at Eco Camp Patagonia

DAY 8 - Torres del Paine

One of the best ways to enjoy all that Patagonia has to offer is by riding through it on horseback.

This excursion departs at 9:30am, after we have had a hearty breakfast at EcoCamp. We will admire the most
spectacular parts of Paine hill with a full day of horseback riding. Venturing through forest and crossing streams,
all the while surrounded by amazing greenery. There are 5 different prairies along this trip and experienced riders are
welcome to gallop through these parts at their leisure. If you visit in February, you will be able see the Encantado valley.

Lunch will be served at the Seron campsite, where we will enjoy a spectacular view, featuring parts of las Torres, 
Mount Admiral Nieto, the Blue lagoon and the Paine river. Depending on our group we can decide to stay out riding past
4:00pm or choose to head back early to EcoCamp and enjoy an evening cocktail.

If you are a horseback riding fanatic this is the perfect adventure for you!

If this excursion is cancelled because of climate conditions, it will be replaced by the trek to French Valley.

Breakfast, lunch, dinner and overnight at Eco Camp Patagonia.

DAY 9 - Torres del Paine

We will walk from the campsite towards Hostería Las Torres before ascending to Ascencio Valley on the Tower’s eastern face.

Mountain ridges, beech forests and small rivers line the scenic walk towards the valley. Our big challenge comes in the form of the steep moraine, a huge mass of boulders which will lead us to that iconic base-view of the Towers – Three gigantic granite monoliths, the remains of a great cirque sheared away by the forces of glacial ice. After a tough uphill climb, the Towers eventually come into full view, rising majestically before us, with the glacial lake visible below.

Is there any better place in the world to have lunch? After feasting on the view and our picnic, we backtrack along the same trail through Ascencio Valley and return to EcoCamp for a well-deserved dinner.
