This month we are welcoming Fantastico Sur to the Emerging Destinations portfolio of cool companies in cool places. Based at Torres del Paine, this family run business specializes in trekking programs and camping/cabin stays in the legendary Chilean national park. The company operates a network of refugios and camps along the famous “W” hiking circuit around the Torres del Paine mountains.
Fantastico Sur’s trekking options range from all-inclusive guided programs to outfitting hikers who want to guide themselves and prepare their own food at the camps and refugios. The company also operates restaurants at each refugios, as well as a national park store that specializes in trekking equipment, food and maps.
One of their most popular treks is a five-day “W Circuit” program that includes the route’s three most spectacular valleys, an ascent to the base of the towers, and a catamaran voyage across Pehoé Lake. The package includes transportation to/from Puerto Natales as well as overnight accommodation in three or four different refugios.
