Matías, husband of Marina and father of Rosa Emilia and Martín, has been working as a head guide & tour organizer for over 6 years with a wide variety of different hotels and local operators in southern Patagonia. A tireless lover of the Patagonian landscape, its wild and its solitude has made the place his home. He is based in the city of Puerto Natales, the entrance to the famous Torres del Paine National Park, where he guides groups along the famous "W" trails and other off beaten tracks in the area. He defines Patagonia as his "muse", his favorite place, traveling it from north to south and from the Pacific to the Atlantic on a few occasions. But it is never enough, he says in his own words.


Day 1: Arrive to Torres del Paine National Park- Trek to the Base of the Towers. Distance: 13.6 miles / Time: 8-10hrs / Level of Difficulty: Demanding / Accommodation: Camping or Refugio Torre Central / Meals: Packed Lunch and Dinner.

After breakfast at your hotel in Puerto Natales, you’ll meet your guide in a semi-private van heading directly to Torres del Paine National Park. Journey amongst the vast Patagonian plains before arriving to the entrance at Laguna Amarga, where your guide is required to register with CONAF (park rangers). Continue along until reaching the Visitor’s Center and Refugio Torre Central, your accommodation for the night.  


Today’s trek follows the Ascensio Valley as it snakes through windswept hills and gigantic beech forests. During the final ascent, you’ll pass through an immense boulder field until reaching one of the most iconic mountain viewpoints in the world, the Base of The Towers. At a height of 900 meters above sea level, marvel at the sheer granite walls of the (north, central, south) towers and the brilliantly turquoise glacial lake below. Take some photographs and have your packed lunch before following the same trail downwards to Refugio Torre Central for a well-deserved rest and dinner.
