While the W trek may be what brings the hordes to the park, the O Circuit is Torres del Paine National Park’s undisputed gem.
The O trek, O Circuit or Full Circuit all refer to the 136-kilometre hike that is the second most popular trail in Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia*.
Ultimately, anyone can hike the O Circuit.
The official opening date of the O Circuit entirely depends on when CONAF decide to open the trail. This normally happens in November.
