The Ultimate Torres Del Paine Travel Guide – Part 5: Lodging

Ok, so you’re finally ready to plan your dream vacation to Torres Del Paine. You’ve researched – you’re ready to attack the W Trek & take in the life altering views that park has to offer. But the big question is, after a long day of hiking, where there heck will you rest your head to get some well deserved R&R?
 
You’re in luck! With this, our 5th and final Ultimate Torres Del Paine Travel Guide segment, we talk all things lodging while in the park! To set your mind at ease, no matter which path you find yourself on throughout Torres Del Paine, we connect you with lodging at one of our 4 Refugio & camp sites. What’s a refugio you ask – great question. Our friends over at Emerging Destinations may say it best in their blog “What In The World Is A Refugio?” – they described it as a “mountain camp” — a place where you can stay overnight on multi-day hikes. Nothing fancy, yet nothing basic either.
