OVERVIEW

Hotel Las Torres is located in the heart of the Torres Del Paine National Park at the foot of the main tourist attraction, Las Torres del Paine and the starting point of the main trails of the park. It is the only working cattle farm inside the park and their all inclusive programs are designed to offer the best of untamed Patagonia. Hotel Las Torres offers a number of activites that are designed to enjoy the national park around a variety of subjects, from the flora, fauna and geology of the park, to the heritage and culture of the gauchos and the indigenous peoples of the region. They also include several modes of transport: vehicle, trekking, horses, navigation and climbing. Last but not least, they vary from easy to difficult depending on your physical condition and experience. The lodge has a number of sustainability features including a herb and vegetable garden and a range of sustainable cocktails. They also take part in a number of conservation efforts in the national park.

Highlights Include:

Base Torres Viewpoint-Walk the park’s main trail to a famous viewpoint situated on the shores of Lake Grey, from where you can observe the slender, granite peaks that give the national park its name. Hike through Ascencio Valley, crossing a beautiful forest of Lengas and later arriving to a rocky area (La Morrena),  finishing at the spectacular Torres Base Viewpoint. After a snack and allotted time for photography, you will follow the same trail back to the hotel.

Organic Garden- Visit the world’s southernmost, as well as one of the region’s oldest organic kitchen gardens at Reserva Cerro Paine. Within less than half a hectare, it produces seasonal fruits and vegetables using bio-intensive, sustainable methods that produce favorable quantities.  Visitors have one or two hours in the garden, during which they can stimulate their senses, sample fresh goods, and learn the history of the world’s southernmost organic garden.

Patagonian Ranch Culture- Learn the Patagonian cowboy way by spending a morning with the baqueanos, who lead the Hotel Las Torres horseback ridings and look after the horses and stables of Estancia Cerro Paine. During your time with these local vaqueros — the descendants of horsemen who came to work ranches in this remote region more than a century ago — you will learn about their special clothing, their saddles and other horse tack, and get a chance to share a mate (an herbal tea made from yerba mate leaves). 

Puma Cave- An area called the Puma Cave is located close to Hotel Las Torres. It is a large rock formation that has magnificent climbing walls with 3 levels of difficulty: basic (beginners), medium and expert. Starting with a complete instruction, this activity lasts for 2 or 3 hours where you will have the opportunity to climb different routes and enjoy this unique experience to the maximum.

After breakfast you may choose to walk the park’s main trail to a famous viewpoint, situated on the shores of a Glacier lagoon, from where you can observe the slender, granite peaks that give the national park its name. The excursion begins at Hotel las Torres, where you will begin a hike through Ascencio Valley, crossing a beautiful forest of Lengas and later arriving to a rocky area (La Morrena), the most difficult section of the trail, and finishing at the spectacular Torres Base Viewpoint. After a snack and allotted time for photography, we will follow the same trail back to the hotel.

After your morning excursion, relax and enjoy the hotel’s facilities before visiting the world’s southernmost, as well as one of the region’s oldest, organic kitchen garden at Reserva Cerro Paine. In less than half a hectare, the garden produces seasonal fruits and vegetables using bio-intensive, sustainable methods that produce food for our restaurants. Our garden has developed immensely since its origin in the early 1950s. With this history in mind, we aim to strike a balance between conserving old fashioned, heirloom varieties and meeting production goals. The farm has nine types of fruits and more than twenty-five types of vegetables, along with an ever-growing group of culinary and medicinal herbs. Visitors have one or two hours in the garden, during which you can stimulate your senses, sample fresh goods, and learn the history of the world’s southernmost organic garden. In addition, visitors can help with some daily harvesting tasks, such as planting and weeding. Extra hands are always welcome!

Exploring Torres del Paine National Park

Hotel Las Torres have a set of activities where you can choose from onsite, allowing you to create your own personalised experience deep in Torres del Paine National Park. Below are suggested options you may like to choose from through-out your stay.

This morning start your journey to the park’s most spectacular waterfall and an astonishing viewpoint. The adventure starts with a 45-minute drive to Pudeto in the heart of the park’s lake district. The trail leads us through a portion of the park impacted by the great forest fire of 2011- 12. Between the remains of the fire-ravaged trees, new life is already sprouting from the rich Patagonian soul. The path continues to Sendero Mirador Cuernos. Possibly the Park’s most spectacular viewpoint, the panorama features the “Los Cuernos” (Horns), Mount Paine Grande and the French Valley and Glacier rising straight up from the other side of Nordenskjöld Lake: a brethtaking spectacle of rock and water. From this point we continue the trail to Salto Grande, a raging aquamarine cascade that channels water between lakes Nordenskjöld and Pehoé. The roundtrip hike from car park to viewpoint takes about two hours.
Given the open terrain, high winds are possible during this trek. Those who don’t want to undertake the complete hike can opt for a shorter version that features just the brief hike to Salto Grande waterfall (about 30min round trip). Enjoy lunch back at the lodge and get refreshed for your afternoon exploration.

This afternoon, you may choose to go for a leisurely trail ride to the famous Lake, ‘Lago Nordenskjold’, at the base of the Paine Massic named after a famous Swedish-Finnish explorer who dedicated himself to the study of Antarctica, Greenland, Chile and Peru. Leaving from Pesebrera, your excursion follows the famous W Trail, passing the northern shores of the lake and Mount Almirante Nieto. Cross various rivers and forests, having the opportunity to appreciate various viewpoints and Patagonian flora. In addition, you will have the opportunity meet the baqueanos and live a unique and authentic experience in Patagonia.
Enjoy dinner at hotel.
