The most spectacular views you’ll ever see. An unmissable experience. The waterfall is a warm up, the short hike to the lake a teaser for the views you will see at the end-enough to make you burst into tears with the sheer beauty of the...More

if the weather is clear then you will get a great view; note it can get rather windy, so whatever the conditions, be properly kitted up.

We saw a lot of this large lake as we were driven to the bottom of the Base Torres hike - quite a challenging walk but well worth the stunning views when you get to the top.

A windy wild trail that when accessed early is yours alone. Fantastic views of the Cuernos del Paine. The wind was gale force and the mountains changed constantly as the clouds blew over. Truly memorable.
