For weeks we prepared physically and mentally for our trekking adventure in the Torres del Paine National Park in Chile. For me it was the second time doing the full circuit trek after I did the circuit back in 2013. The Torres del Paine circuit is also called the „O“ due to the shape of the trail – it also represents the extension of the „W“ trek which is most famous hiking route in Chile.
Before heading into the park we prepared in Puerto Natales where we bought all supplies needed and planned out our trip and route. We took the early bus into the park and left all the stuff we didn’t need for the trek at the Hotel Las Torres where we were supposed to stay after the finish of the trek.
This part of the trip was executed within 8 days and this is what we saw:
– Torres del Paine National Park
– Hotel Las Torres
– Campamento Serón
– Refugio Dickson
– Southern Patagonian Ice Field
– Campamento Los Perros
– Glaciar Los Perros
– Puerto Natales
– Campo Hielo Sur
– Campamento Paso
– Glaciar Grey / Grey Glacier
– Refugio Grey
– Refugio Paine Grande
– Campamento Italiano
– Mirador Britanico & French Valley / Valle Frances
– Refugio Los Cuernos
– Refugio Chileno
– Campamento Torres (CONAF)
– Lago Nordernskjöld
– Base Las Torres
– Valle Ascencio
– Lago Pehoe
– Paso John Gardner
I’m excited to share all our experiences in Patagonia in this video series. In the next episode we will do more tours in Torres del Paine National Park and meet more impressive characters along the way.
The Patagonian Expedition is a 95% self funded video documentary project following my trip in 2012/2013. Our aim is to show you the beauty of the rather unknown parts in Patagonia alongside with the famous spots.
Beside beautiful landscape you can expect loads of information and our personal experiences and struggles along the way.

The whole trip was executed over the course of 2 months using mostly local transport such as busses, cars and trucks. A big thank you goes to the Hotel Las Torres for supporting this part of the trip:
