The day starts by picking up the passengers from their accommodation in Puerto Natales, between 6:00 and 6:30 AM. Once all the passengers are already up, the transfer to Torres del Paine National Park begins, after 1 hour 45 min trip, we arrive to the Pudeto sector, where we take the catamaran that sails around the Pehoe Lake for about 40 minutes, this is a beautiful navigation where you can appreciate the imposing peaks of the Paine mountain range. The disembarkation is at the refuge Paine Grande, here we start the hike of about 10 km with medium/high difficulty. During this first stretch we can see the hanging glaciers of the Paine Grande mountain while we border the Skottsberg lake. After approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes we arrive at the Italian camping site, from here we can see the interior of the French Valley, Cuernos del Paine, among other summits. Once we get into the valley the difficulty of the hike increases, the terrain becomes steeper and more rocky until we reach the viewpoint Valle Frances, from here we have a frontal view of the French glacier. At the viewpoint we take some time for lunch. After enjoying the incredible view, we start the return by the same path to the Paine Grande sector to sail again on the Phasta Lake to the Pudeto sector and return to Puerto Natales.
