Day 1: Puerto Natales. Glacier Boat. Hike Grey - Pehoe. Arrive into Puerto Natales. Meet guide and the rest of the group at BlueGreen Adventures office and take a private transfer via the new road into Torres del Paine arriving at the Park's entrance in just over an hour. Drive to Grey Lake and board the Grey II launch which takes you through the normally iceberg-choked waters of Grey Lake and up to the disembarkation point close to Grey Glacier. After a walk to the Grey Glacier lookout, we will continue hiking down the beautiful forested trail towards Lake Pehoe.
This trail skirts the edge of the immense Grey Glacier and the mountain and glacier views are incredible. After a packed lunch, continue on to the turquoise waters of Lake Pehoe, one of the prettier lakes in the Park. Your tents will be ready for you here so you can relax and enjoy some snacks and a cup of tea or glass of wine before dinner. Dinner will be eaten in nearby refugio. Lunch and dinner included (drinks available at extra cost). Camp facilities include hot showers, small shop, bathrooms and a bar.
Day 2: Hike Pehoe to Los Cuernos. After breakfast, we will pack our day packs with cameras and packed lunches and head out towards the French Valley and along the edges of Lake Nordenskjold. A full day's hike we will enjoy fantastic views of the amphitheatre of granite peaks that make up this enclosed valley as well as the waterscapes below including lakes Pehoe, Scottsburg, Toro, and Nordenskjold.
After some time enjoying the scenery we will have a picnic lunch before pressing on along the turquoise lakeshores to Camping Cuernos situated in a beautiful location nestled between the mountains and the lake.

Day 4: Hike to base of Towers. Transfer Puerto Natales. Today's hiking is our most arduous but worthwhile as we climb to the Towers themselves. A roundtrip hike we will climb up into the Ascending Valley and through beautiful old growth beech forests to a rock moraine just under the towers.
