Day two in Torres del Paine and we were keen to get to the western side of the park.
So we took the catamaran from Pehoe to Paine Grande and then hiked for three hours up to the Glacier Grey lookout. This felt like the windiest place on earth – ahead of us was the Southern Patagonian Ice Field which covers an area of nearly 5,000 square miles.
We returned to our Torres Norde Lodge just in time for a three-course meal to finish off a great day in a majestic landscape.
Make a promise to yourself to come here – but book early, especially if you want to do the ‘W’ or ‘O’ multi-day treks.
