TORRES DEL PAINE

"Patagonia is a rare spectacle. The majesty of the mountains and the splendour of the ice fields gives the region an impression of ‘finis terrae’, the end of the world. The sun shines in this scenic place and reflects unbelievable colours. It is thought that the name Paine comes from the Tehuelche (native language), where it means "pale blue", perhaps making reference to the colour of the many glaciers and lakes."

The trek round the Torres del Paine circuit is one of the most inspirational journeys in the world.
