Torres del Paine

torres del paine

Parque Nacional Torres del Paine is located 112km north of Puerto Natales.  The park’s famous centerpiece is the Paine Massif, a small mountain system completely independent from the Patagonian Andes Range.  There are magnificent views to be had throughout the park including turquoise lakes, glaciers, icebergs, the towers of Paine and the horns of Paine.  The sights are dramatic and ever-changing.  One minute it’s sunny and brilliant, and the next it’s overcast and ominous.  It snowed the morning of our visit to the park and for much of the day the sky was grey and draped in a heavy layer of clouds and fog, making it impossible to view the classic Torres del Paine panoramas.
