The 'W' trek is the name given to the W shaped beaten track that interlinks the 3 Granite Paine Towers, the French Valley, and the Grey Glacier. The trek is approximately 70 kilometers (43 miles) in total distance and is one of the most scenic treks in the world.

 

The W Alternative itinerary is a popular option for those that want to have a more relaxed and less demanding adventure. This is ideal for those on honeymoon, a family vacation or those that prefer day trips starting and returning to Puerto Natales. We visit the best of the W-Trek such as the Base of the Towers, the French Valley and the Grey Glacier. Are you ready to join us on this wonderful tour? See full tour details below:
