Torres del Paine National Park is named after the 2,000-metre tall granite pillars that dominate the landscape of the park. In addition to the towers, visitors can see glaciers, lakes, waterfalls and wildlife. There are also a number of multiday hikes that visitors can undertake, but also shorter walks of an hour or several hours are possible. You can also visit parts by bike or even car, but you won't get into the real wilderness that way. The park is located roughly 112 kilometres north of Puerto Natales and 312 north of Punta Arenas. Argentinian El Calafate is not that far away either.
Entry costs $US 14 per person from October through April, and $US 7 per person from May to September for foreign visitors. Chileans pay less.
Buses from Puerto Natales take about 3 hours and run on a daily basis. Tours run from El Calafate as well, though there is no public transport.
A minivan runs between Laguna Amarga and Los Torres.
A catamaran runs between Refugio Pudeto and Refugio Lago Pehoé.
