The trip from El Calafate to National Park Torres del Paine takes 3 hours and a half. Once in the park, you will be able to combine rides in vehicle and hikes, as there are many roads that go along the park and hundreds of hiking paths from one side to another. As we organize this excursion in small groups we can adapt the itinerary and hikes depending on the profile of the passengers, choosing the paths that fit better.
By default, the level of difficulty of the activities in our programs is low, having the chance to change it for a higher level is the group asks for it.
