Our Patagonia Trekking guides that lead the Torres del Paine treks are Patagonian locals who have years of experience leading groups in Torres del Paine National Park and know the park like the back of their hand. Many of them have traveled throughout the world and come back to Patagonia, unable to stay away from the landscapes they grew up with and so dearly love. They live in Puerto Natales and come up to Eco Camp with tour trekkers to start each trek, enjoying nights spent both at Eco Camp and in the middle of the park's wilderness. Our private tours for families, friends or corporate groups are guided by Cara MacDonald
