WILDTHENTIC TRAVELERS TESTIMONIALS
"Experience the ice!What an incredible excursion! Unlike other treks or tours in Torres del Paine, with this company you actually get to walk out onto Glacier Grey, experiencing the ice first hand. I was totally blown away by the depth of the crevasses and the richness of the colors that you see inside them. Cramponing across the glacier is the only way to really appreciate how special it is. Highly recommended."
