Enjoy the Week Trekking to discover the most beautiful trails in Patagonia

The Week Trekking is a program that was made especially for lovers of trekking and nature. In other words, you will enjoy seven days in Patagonia with a program designed so that you get to know the most beautiful trails and tourist spots.

You will stay in the city of Puerto Natales, which is a charming city of approximately 22 thousand inhabitants. You will be in a very well located point, making it possible to visit the main trails of Chilean Patagonia. The Week Trekking program is perfect to get to know the region with your partner or friends.

Get to know the Milodon Cave, the Balmaceda and Serrano glaciers and the Torres del Paine Park

You will begin by getting to know the Milodon Cave Natural Monument, a place made up of three caves, where the remains of Milodons were found. The Mylodon was a large herbivorous mammal that probably became extinct at the end of the Plaistocene. You will also see rock formations with cave paintings.

Then, on a calmer day on the Week Trekking, you will visit two Patagonian glaciers. With the Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers excursion you will navigate through the Fjord of Última Esperanza, thus entering the Bernardo O’Higgins National Park to see the glaciers.

You will also get to know Sierra Baguales, a place with more than 50 million years of history that will amaze you with its jagged reliefs and dark mountains. You can go horseback riding and trekking through the more than 6,000 hectares of the place, discovering lagoons, winding rivers, geological formations and fossils.

Also, obviously the Week Trekking program will take you to the famous Torres del Paine National Park. Surely, this park is a mandatory stop on a trip to Patagonia. It will be two days there, so you can have different views of this beautiful place. You will do the Torres del Paine Full Day and the famous Towers Base Trek.

We have an early breakfast to make the trip to the excellence of the region, we refer to the Torres del Paine National Park where we can visit the Grey Glacier located within the park next to the Paine Massif. The first section is done by Zodiac in order to get closer to Nunatak Island, and thus be able to walk on it for about an hour, and access the glacier more safely.

Once there, we start a walk that can last between 40 minutes and 1 hour until we reach the access to the ice. This route is uphill on rocky terrain and has a medium difficulty.

Before entering the glacier, the guide will give a safety talk in which he will explain the techniques of moving on the ice and the correct use of the equipment. Once the talk is over, the incomparable ice trekking adventure will begin for about 2.5 hours on the Grey Glacier, observing cracks, rivers, lagoons, tunnels and ice caves.
