Grey Peninsula: Trekking in Torres del Paine
The day begins with a journey across the Torres del Paine national park by van, with striking views of snow-dusted mountains and glacial lakes. We begin at the Grey checkpoint by trekking through beautiful lenga forest, crossing the Pingo River on a hanging bridge, before we make the descent to Lake Grey, and trek along the pebble shore.
We walk for approximately 40 minutes on the beach, which is particularly striking in the fall, with deep shades of copper, red and ochre on the hillsides. On reaching the Grey peninsula, we take the trail which leads around to the headland, where you can sea the ice floes that have drifted down from the Grey Glacier, which can be seen in the distance.
We finish our Torres del Paine trekking on the far side of the peninsula, following the beach back through the wood to the van waiting to take us back to relax and unwind at the Tierra Patagonia Hotel.
