What's CLP? Your booking is based on Chilean pesos (CLP), but you pay in US dollars (USD), using the exchange rate valid on the day of payment which will be shown in your order. This exchange rate may vary between the date you pay your deposit and the date you pay your outstanding balance, but rest assured this is the best way to keep our prices competitive and ensure the best rate for you!

STARTING / FINISHING POINT
This trip starts and ends at EcoCamp Patagonia
The weather in Patagonia can be difficult to predict. We reserve the right to change the order of the days in any itinerary at the discretion of the trip guide based upon operational considerations. The trip guide can modify, change or eliminate part of the itinerary based on these considerations.
In Torres del Paine and throughout Patagonia, transportation is in minivans that seat 8 to 14 people. Pick-up/drop-off times are shown on the Weekly Transfer Board. These times are approximate and will be confirmed by our local operations team. An exclusive toll-free emergency number will be available for anyone needing additional support while they are in Chile.
The vast unbroken stretch of ocean to the west and south of the South American continent leaves the Patagonian Andes very exposed to the saturated winds that circle the Antarctic landmass. Fine weather may deteriorate almost without warning, bringing rain and even snow. Even in summer (December to March) you should come prepared to find cold- strong winds (up to 130 km/hr) and rainfall. Summer’s average temperature is 11ºC (52ºF), ranging between 2 to 24ºC (35 to 75ºF).
WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING
Guests need to be prepared for all seasons in one day.
