Frequent questions

Does the tour runs all year around?

Yes anytime of the year, however there are some restrictions during Winter time, due to the lack of light or weather conditions. We recommend travelling between August and May. Tours are not cancelled by wind or rain.

What kind of vehicles are used?

It will depend on the amount of passengers in the tour, therefore a 9-passengers-van or a 30-passengers-bus can be used.

Are there lunch options during tour ?  

The tour stops at the restaurants in Torres del Paine National Park for around 1 hour, where passengers can buy menus or sandwiches available. We recommend to bring cash (in case of credit card devices are not operating). The passenger can also bring their own lunch from Puerto Natales which can be consumed on the vehicle or in the areas indicated by guides.  

Is it possible to see the famous “Towers during the tour?   

The three peaks known as “Torres del Paine”, “Los Cuernos del Paine”, and the rest of the mountainous massif can be seen with a panoramic view from different lookouts where the tour stops. The tour goes through the 60 kilometers of road inside the park which is located in front of the massif where is possible to admire the peaks. The visibility will depend on the cloudy condition.

 

The tour does not  visit the “Towers”, and can be seen see them in a panoramic view, as mentioned previously.  For visiting them is necessary the “Trekking Base las Torres” or “W Circuit”.
