Trek through Torres del Paine in Patagonia

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone,
My husband and I are trying to plan a February 2013 trip to Patagonia, and have been trying for a week now to contact Cascada Expeditions (https://www.cascada.travel/) to learn more about their 7-Day W Trek. But no one answers the phone or returns emails.

Do any of you have another suggestion for a guided trek in Torres del Paine that is "demanding," but not exceptionally technical/strenuous? We're up for the 5-15 mile hiking days, but prefer not to have a full-on backpacking experience. Which is why we liked Cascada for the Ecodome lodging options. And the nights with wine and someone cooking for you. So not luxury, but not total wilderness either.

We'd love to keep it under $2500/person for the week trek. Any ideas?

And we've been thinking early February, but if any of you have advice on a better time to go, we'd love to hear it.

Thanks,
Kristen
