There are a number of hotels with exceptional locations, set in beautiful scenery, such as Hosteria Torres, Hotel Lago Grey and Pampa Lodge. It's a pleasure to gaze out of the window when you wake up in the morning. However, some of these hotels are rather old and haven't been renovated to keep up with the times.
If you do decide to stay in a hotel, there are two reasons you might want to consider their all inclusive packages:
- Travel is not as easy to organise in Patagonia as it is elsewhere in the world. Using one of these hotels as a base is difficult, as there is often only one walkable route from them, and they do not connect to one another.
- Reaching such hotels can be difficult due to the size of the Park, the conditions of the tracks inside it, and a distinct lack of road signs.
Estancias are a key part of the Patagonian heritage and lifestyle and the estancias in Torres del Paine are a great base from which to explore the region on horse-back. However, for those less inclined to spend their trip on a horse, estancias are best used for a short, one-night stay after a tiring W Trek, on your way to the next stop of your adventure. They provide an interesting feel for the cultural ways of the locals for a day or so but most people tend to move on after that.
There are still some proper, working estancias in the park, like Cerro Guido. It's got 100 years plus of history and you're sitting with the pampas all around and the Paine massif lit up by the sunset and you feel so much a part of the place.

Refugios are warm, friendly, convivial places with dorm-style rooms shared between 6 people, hot meals, and showers.
When trekking from refugio to refugio, there is no need to carry any camping equipment or food, and bedding or sleeping bags can be provided. You are provided with a fresh breakfast and supper, as well as a packed/boxed lunch of a sandwich and snacks.
The meals are canteen style and often filling but not of a high standard. Refugios are sociable places and the shared dorms and communal dining mean that there is a lot of camaraderie with fellow trekkers during the evening, which is great for solo trekkers. You can buy beer and wine, and often there is a small shop to buy snacks and basic groceries.
There are 3 different types of campsite in Torres del Paine:
- Refugio campsites with well-maintained toilet blocks, hot showers, and shelters in which to sit, cook and socialise. You will need to pay to use these camps. Meals are provided inside the refugio and they can supply tents, bedding, and sleeping mats, so that you don't need to carry more than a day pack.
- Secondly, there are basic free campsites which are quite busy noisy and poorly maintained. There is a basic toilet and a park ranger keeping order.
- Finally, there are some really quiet and more remote wild campsites with no facilities. These tend to be high in the valleys; there is one in the Bader Valley and one high in the Silence Valley called Camp Japones.
Camping on the W trek route allows you to trek independently on a budget, or you can explore deeper into the Park on the full circuit.
