What to pack Torres del Paine

Check-in: Check-in takes place as of 13:00 p.m.

Check-out: Check-out must be at 10:00 a.m.* If you want to take a half-day exploration, you have to check out before leaving to the exploration and we will take care of your luggage.

*Lunch service is not included on check-out day

Located in the so called Wet Andes –a climatic and glaciological sub region of the Andes mountain range– this part of Patagonia is mostly lush green, with a volatile climate that can spin all four seasons into a single day. This volatility translates in flora as varied as the climate itself, including dense forests, Patagonian steppe, mountainous scrubland and Andean desert. Likewise, the glaciers of the Wet Andes are far more stable than those of the Dry Andes due to summer precipitations, low thermal oscillations and overall high moisture.
