What to Pack for The O Circuit and W Trek in Patagonia + Tips for Your Trip

Deciding what to pack for the O Circuit or W Trek in Patagonia can be really difficult! In general, packing for multi-day hikes is a challenging task, but Patagonia's notorious wind and quick-changing weather make packing for a trek in this region even more difficult. We hiked the O Circuit in Torres del Paine National Park (Chile) in March, 2022, and we brought all our own camping equipment and food for the entire trek. In this video we are sharing with you what to pack for the O Circuit as well as what to pack for the W Trek, inclusive of the food to bring for multi-day hiking and tons of tips for the O Circuit!

For anyone just learning about hiking in Torres del Paine National Park, it's important to know that the O Circuit is a big circular loop usually completed over 7-9 days, and the W Trek is the latter half of the O Circuit. So, by completing the O Circuit, you also complete the W Trek! Because the two trails have so much overlap, we have included lots of great tips for the W Trek as well.

If you want to know things like is there safe drinking water on the treks, if there are toilets at campsites, how often you will find garbages, and how accessible electricity is on the O Circuit and W Trek, be sure to watch the full video! We include all of this information (and so many more goodies) throughout the video.
