The French Valley is one of the three principal attractions of the “W” circuit and it is one of the most striking trails in the National Park. It is not to be missed for those who enjoy hiking and are in good physical shape. The experience begins at the Pudeto Dock where we will take the catamaran that crosses the icy cold turquoise waters of Lake Pehoe to the slopes of Cerro Paine Grande. Here we will start a marvellous hike full of scenic contrasts on our way to the Italian Camp; from here we continue on upwards over an ancient glacial moraine and going through a wooded valley to reach the French Lookout. Open your senses and discover the sensation of being in this amazing amphitheatre in Torres del Paine surrounded by glaciers and impressive walls of granite.

* Note: The catamaran boat trip costs an additional $70 USD per person approx. This excursion is subject to the itinerary of the Lake Pehoe boat crossing. Available from the 1st November to the 31st March.
