If you're short on time and just want to catch the highlights of Torres del Paine this trip is for you. This trek hits the main highlights of what might be South America's finest national park. The first day we hike to base of the granite pillars of Torres del Paine which stand almost 2000m/6500ft above the surrounding glaciers and lakes. The second days takes us by boat across Pehoe Lake and then by foot up French Valley to a panoramic view of Paine Grande, the parks tallest peak, and French Glacier. The last day we hike up to the terminus of Glacier Grey where visitors can often catch a glimpse of the giant icebergs calving directly into the lake. Combine some of the world's greatest scenery with an excellent trail and mountain hut system and this has to be one of the finest treks short adventures anywhere.
