|TORRES DEL PAINE
AND LOS GLACIARES,
backward movements of glaciers have created a
rock scene, which is born at the level of the sea, reaching heights
3,000 meters. In this scenery rivers, snow and ice fields,
and animals this place something that you will never forget. One of
these ares is Torres del Paine National park.
Paine Circuit is the
main trek that circumnavigates Torres del Paine massif,
challenging trip of 160 km offering constantly changing views of its
magnificent peaks. The "W" Circuit trek goes through the three main
the Paine massif, which are Ascencio, French
Valley and Grey.
Argentinean side of Patagonia and offers an
exhilarating view of the granite tower
of Cerro Torre, Fitz Roy, Poincenot and others. We also enjoy an
excursion to see the Moreno Glacier, whose is high head wall
continually calves massive blocks of ice into the lake.

are a relatively young mountain
created over the last
70 million years as the Nazca plate was slowly pushed under the
continental South American plate. Over the last two million years the
Cordillera has undergone several periods of intense glaciation during
which much of its present topography was formed. The South Patagonian
Andes are largely composed of granitic rocks. In Paine area the black
caps on the peaks like Cuernos and Fortress are remnants of a huge
Fifty million years from now, ice erosion may have completely wiped
out the magnificent granite spires and crustal plates. Approximately
14,000 years ago the last ice age began to end, and the glaciers that
had intermittently covered most of the Andes retreated into the
Cordillera. This natural global warming allowed the plants and animals
to recolonise large areas previously under ice.
Paine Mountain Range and Fitz Roy
contains so many mountains spread along these areas,
where have concentrated on the most spectaculars peaks, Fitz Roy
(Native name "Chalten"), Cerro Torre, Towers of Paine, Paine Grande,
Cuernos del Paine and many more.
Patagonian Ice cap that is primarily responsible for the climate along
Paine and Los Galciares region. This is the largest ice cap in the
world outside north Pole and Antarctica´s area. The westerly sea
air carries moisture that cools down as it moves across the ice cap.
Waves and vortices create a meeting of winds from different
directions, forming a convergence zone. Areas of low pressure and
convergence zones result in thick clouds and precipitation. The ice cap
may be responsible for katabatic winds in the Fitz Roy and Paine

in gleaming ice, wild animals, tidewater glaciers and we invite you to
join Patagonia with us.
