The Argentine government charges Canadian citizens a reciprocity tax. This tax must be paid online prior to travel and a receipt for this payment must be produced at every border crossing into Argentina.

The strictly traditional "W hike" involves an overnight at Camping Los Cuernos. The space available to set up camp in this area is very limited (particularly on the busy summer months) and the terrain uncomfortable. The above itinerary skips this campsite by driving to the other side of the park (Las Torres del Paine). We believe this change enhances the enjoyment of the trekking days.
Our Patagonia Trekking trips score an average of 4.57 out of 5 based on 46 reviews in the last year.
The tracking isn't for the faint of heart. It will take some cardio training to keep up with the group. There is a reciprocity fee for Aussies for Chile.

The 'W' trek in Torres del Paine was fantastic. Our local guide, Carlos was knowledge, friendly and excited to share this experience with all group members.
