The truck is moves easily along the gravel path. Through the window you can see the first mountain peaks and smell the water close by as you begin to feel giddy in your seat. We are close to Laguna Amarga, the first stop in Torres del Paine National Park. We go down with our backpacks and when we finally touch the earth we hear the echo of our footsteps, and then we begin to understand why everyone talks about this place. The beautiful solitude, the natural isolation in one of the southernmost corners of the world. We have 5 days to do the W Circuit and complete 4 stages: Base Torres, Los Cuernos, French Valley and the Grey Glacier. Each one will take us further and further into the wilderness, defying our physical will and rewarding us at every step with the discovery of the new – floating glaciers, hidden mountains, forests of millennial lengas – and that adrenaline that comes into our hearts and bodies with every thrilling adventure.
