  • Its location in Serrano Village gives you a tranquil base away from the crowds of the more central areas of the park
  • You will share with a maximum of only four others
  • The refugio stays open throughout the winter

Food and drink

If you're staying in the domes or cabins, meals are included and are an indulgent affair. Delicious local dishes are served in the heated communal dining dome which has wooden tables and benches and fantastic views of the Paine Massif. If you're camping, you can set up your cooking equipment in one of the domes. There's also a 'quincho', a traditional cooking room where barbecues are prepared.

Vista Paine Lodge


Cabins have their own bathrooms while there is a separate block of showers and toilets for campers. Bathroom facilities are basic but clean and there are hot showers.
