Torres del Paine - Glacier Ride
Patagonia / Torres del Paine Chile

This ride continues to be one of the most spectacular wilderness rides available. The combination of fast, exciting riding and the spectacular scenery of Torres del Paine make it one of the world’s ultimate riding destinations. Riders will witness two of the most beautiful and immense glaciers in the Park, Dickson and Grey, with an optional boat trip to the very face of the Glacier at Grey. Camp in some of the most beautiful wilderness and ride among the magnificent granite peaks of the Paine mountain range.

Fully catered and serviced, the camping is comfortable and relaxing in roomy dome tents. Riders can unwind at the end of their riding day while the guide and cook prepare their snacks and the evening meal. This all comes washed down with ample supplies of Chilean wine. The views from the tents are always outstanding and we continue to strive to find the best campsites in the entire Park – both in terms of their stunning location and their lack of tourist crowds.

As with the Estancia Ride, the riding is incredible by the day, consisting mainly of unique trails through Torres del Paine’s dramatic scenery, with no shortage of huge granite peaks, soft grassy valleys with flower-filled meadows, exciting river crossings, ancient southern beech forests, jewel colored lakes with bobbing icebergs, and towering valley glaciers.

This ride was the first original lengthy horseback tour in the Torres del Paine National Park and there's still no other quite like it in comparison. With its fast-paced and challenging riding on fit Criollo horses, it's no pony trek for novices. Riders will canter side by side across the wide open pampas towards the huge mountain peaks and immense glaciers of Patagonia, truly a once in a lifetime experience!  Because of this, riders often keep in touch with each other years after their horseback trek. There is something unforgettable about the shared experiences enjoyed on this ride – it is something unique to the average camping experience. Riding group reunions crop up all over the world and we get messages from clients years after their visit.
