Hike below the granite peaks of this prestigious national park
Torres del Paine is widely recognised as one of the world's great national parks, and it isn't hard to see why. The scenery here is often astounding and brings together everything that Patagonia does so well; towering snow-capped mountains seem to soar skywards out of thick forests, which themselves lead to the shores of shimmering turquoise lakes. Wandering vicuñas, deer and foxes dot the landscape, whilst electric-blue icebergs and tumbling glaciers remind you just how far south you are here. The most recognisable features of the park are the three granite towers (los torres), which give the park its name, and the horns (los cuernos), a distinctive collection of jagged granite peaks, sculptured over millennia by glacial erosion and which combine with Lake Pehoé to create the very definition of a picture-perfect scene.
Small valleys separate the spectacular granite spires and mountains of the massif, the most famous of which, due to their beauty and immensity, are the French Valley and the Valley of Silence.
