Editor's Note: Last week, we asked readers to help us build a bucket list of the world’s best trails. Here is a (by no means comprehensive!) list of 10 beautiful picks, near and far alike, to get your trip-planning juices flowing.
1. Torres del Paine Circuit Trail
This 52-mile loop, south of Santiago, encircles the Torres del Paine–8,000- to 10,000-foot granite peaks that curl like frozen waves of rock above iceberg-studded lakes. This awe-inspiring route leads you past massive glaciers, towering spires and windswept lenga forests, as well as local wildlife like rheas, Andean condors and guanacos (similar to llamas). Make sure you go in the Chilean summer (November to early March), when the temps hover in the upper 50s and the sun doesn’t set until 10 p.m.
