Chile's Hiking trails reveal chiseled peaks, sparkling lakes, snow-capped volcanoes and temperate forests.
Chile is a wonderful place to lace up your walking boots and immerse yourself in the splendour of its Patagonian landscapes.
In the south of Patagonia is the Torres del Paine national park, perhaps the continent's premier hiking destination, where trails of varying degrees of length. These lead to viewpoints of snow-capped Andean peaks, glistening turquoise lagoons and the immense Glacier Grey. Glorious views abound and turn down the right path and the park's wildlife might come into view; wandering guanacos, soaring condors or even the reclusive puma.These can be undertaken on day hikes, or as part of the challenging 5 day 'W' trek, for experienced and enthusiastic hikers with good stamina. It is also possible to horse ride along a number of well established routes, for those who might like to weave in some exploring at a gentler pace. Torres del Paine combines particularly well with the Skorpios III cruises to explore some of the region's more remote glaciers on a three night expedition cruise.
Further north we find the popular Lake District, a region of not just attractive blue lakes, but also verdant conical snow-capped volcanoes and verdant native forests harbouring an abundance of endemic bird life, trees and flora. Guided hikes will introduce you to the splendour of the multi-layered and complex forests, whilst both natural and man-made hot springs will sooth your limbs at the end of the walk. You might also choose to explore the Lake District by bike, perhaps reaching the iconic viewpoint of Pertrohue Waterfalls and the Osorno Volcano.
Just outside Santiago are a number of parks in which to enjoy some hikes in various environments. We can find contrasting natural features such as snow-covered Andean peaks and a remote glacier and lush palm trees and isolated waterfalls.
