Absolutely Amazing. Breathtaking Scenery
Jan 2020
A highlight of the W trail is the walk to the Torres Mirador. well worth the uphill climb. The scenery is breathtaking. We self-guided and completed the W trail staying at refugios and camping. The key is to getting the accommodation booked. It gets booked out once the season opens up on May 1st. The trails are easy to follow

Los Cuernos!
Jan 2020 • Family
The marketed highlight is the hike to the Torres del Paine, which are indeed worthy of the long (and, at times, steep and crowded) hike, but they are not the real highlight of the trek. A stay at Los Cuernos campsite is not to be missed - particularly if you can stay in one of the beautiful and comfortable cabins - followed by the hike down the French Valley to the Mirador Frances lookout and then a return hike to Paine Grande campsite. This entire hiking day is glorious, with smaller crowds than Torres, greater lushness at the beginning and a beautiful forest/burn-zone hike at the end.

The 5 day hike allows for a 13 mile day one (Torres), a recovery eight mile day two (to Los Cuernos campsite), a 12 mile day three (French Valley), a recovery eight mile hike to Refugio Grey (with afternoon kayaking or ice hiking) and a relaxing last day for some more kayaking/ice hiking or a short hike to the hanging bridges (go to the second one and then five minutes past to the glacier overlook).

The food at the refugios was much above any typical camping experience, with Paine Grande (decent quality and a smallish buffet of choices as compared to the fixed menu at most locations) and Refugio Grey (best quality/presentation) being the best of our four. Eating at the refugios also provides an opportunity to talk to fellow hikers at the communal tables - we talked with a Scottish flight attendant, a Baxkroads tour guide on her break week and a very interesting middle-ages couple from Seville. There are also stocked bars at all the sites for those who are interested, as well as small shops for basic necessities and junk food.

Our weather was postcard perfect, so that likely influenced our enjoyment greatly. Were there rain combined with the howling wind we experienced on two days, then this trip could really be disastrous, particularly for tent campers like us. If that is a concern, then book a shared room in a refugio and (as we did) definitely one night in a two person cabin at Los Cuernos. At least sleeping out of the wind and rain would steel you for the next day.
