Patagonia, Torres del Paine and the W Trek

I’m not going to write much about the W trek, I’ll just let the images speak for themselves!

I met my french friend Robert in Puerto Natales, the small fishing town where most people meet-up and get all their things together for the trek. We prepared our hiking rations, our itinerary, and rented all our camping gear, before catching a bus to Torres del Paine national park, where the action takes place.

The trek was pretty intense, we walked 75km in 4 days, that’s an average of 7 1/2 hours a day, but fortunately we were blessed with the best possible weather you could ask for! Usually while trekking Torres del Paine you get 200 km/h winds and schizophrenic weather, the area is notorious for having 4 seasons a day.

We also met a couple of swiss friends, Rose and Simon, who ended up hiking 3 of the 4 days, with us!

Thanks you Torres del Paine!
