Welcome to the Chilean hikers paradise. Read about how to get to Torres del Paine, the main attractions and things to do inside this reputed national park in Chilean Patagonia.
Torres del Paine National Park, created in 1959, is one of the most visited destinations in Chilean Patagonia. Its first inhabitants were the Tehuelches, a native community of skilled hunters, which only survives today in Argentina. With its 227,298 hectares, extended hiking trails, glaciers, lakes and stunning mountains, the park hosts thousands of travelers per year. In 1978, the park was declared as a biosphere reserve by UNESCO, and the 8th wonder of the world in 2013. Impressive mountains like the Paine Grande and its famous “towers” are the natural attractions that everybody comes to see! Several glaciers that belong to the Southern Patagonian Ice Field can be seen if you walk the park. There are hotel and campsite options for those wanting to stay a couple of nights inside the park (Let’s show you things to do in Torres del Paine!).
