Torres del Paine Hotels, Refugios and Luxury Camping
Ideal, Reduced Covid-19 Contagion Options See Below
Here at Experience Chile we provide a wide selection of accommodation options in and around the Torres del Paine National Park, as well as throughout the Patagonia region, including Puerto Natales, El Calafate and Punta Arenas. No matter whether you want to soak in the scenery from the comfort of a luxury hotel, or you prefer to mix with other trekkers in a refugio, we have a wealth of options for you to choose from.
Mingle With Other Travellers in the Refugios
If you are hiking the W Trek you will need to stay in one or more refugios. Therefore, here we explain what a refugio is.
A refugio is the Chilean name for a rustic mountain hut, or better described as a hostel, where travellers and backpackers from all over the world can stay in dorm-style rooms, with bunk beds. Consequently, the bathroom facilities are shared, but segregated and there are communal areas where you can relax and dine.
The W Trek Refugios are the perfect option for those who want to meet fellow trekkers. As a result you can bask in the community atmosphere and remain close to nature. Moreover, if you are hiking the W Trek trail you will likely need to stay overnight in one or more refugios. Each refugio is positioned at a strategic point on the trail so that after a few hours of walking you will be able to stop, eat, rest and sleep for the night. For example, there is refugio Chileno half way up the ascensio valley on the way to the Torres base. On the other hand the refugio and cabins Cuernos are positioned bear the entrance of the French Valley.
Some of the refugio options that you can book with us include:
- Refugio Chileno – Torres Base Half Way Point
- The Refugio Central – Torres Base Trail Head
- Torre Norte Refugio – Opposite Refugio Central
- The Refugio Los Cuernos – for the French Valley
- Cabana Cuernos – Next to Refugio Cuernos
- Domos Frances – Closer to French Valley
- Refugio Paine Grande – Landing and Departure for Catamaran
- The Refugio Grey – for Kayak, Ice Climb Glaicer Grey & Navigation Grey Lake
- Dickson Refugio – for the back country Circuit Trek
Stay in One of Patagonia‘s Stunning, Luxury Hotels or Lodges
Torres del Paine offers a varied selection of accommodation types. As a result, one category of hotel, or lodge, for consideration are the top-end, upmarket lodges described below.
For example, after a day of exploring, hiking and taking in the Patagonian sights, it would only be natural if you want to lie down in calm, serene surroundings to prepare yourself for the next day’s adventure. There are only a few such places in and around Torres del Paine. However, we are partnered with a selection of the best luxury hotel and lodge owners in Patagonia, where you can have a peaceful area to rest. Above all, you can sleep in luxury accommodation as well as enjoy excellent food, wines and spa facilities throughout the duration of your trip.
Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa
Hotel Tierra Patagonia will take your breath away as soon as you enter through its front door. This stunning hotel is one of National Geographic’s ‘Unique Lodges of the World’, and its prime location allows you to explore Patagonia and Torres Del Paine with ease, as well as enjoy outstanding views across lake Sarmiento and to the Torres del Paine Massif as well as the famous “towers”. Therefore, we can recommend this hotel as absolutely one of the best.
Above all, we run an offer should we book this for you, which is that we will include one of the following, based upon a min 4-night, all-incluisve stay: Free return flight Santiago to Punta Arenas or Puerto Natales, or a free hotel night in Santiago, Punta Arenas or Puerto Natales (our choice, but it will be a good hotel). Moreover, our offer is in addition to any that the hotel has going too.
Explora Patagonia Hotel
The Explora Patagonia Salto Chico hotel is a luxury lodge situated in the heart of Torres Del Paine National Park. This wonderful location gives you a stunning view to the main Torres del Paine central massif and its “cuernos”, at close quarters, directly out of your bedroom window. As a result, it is also has closer access to some of the park’s W Trek trail heads. In addition, due to the central location of the hotel, there are often good opportunities to see local wildlife. When you are not participating in any of the many activities you can also take advantage of the hotel’s luxury spa and restaurant.
Consequently, as with the Tierra above, we can recommend this lodge as absolutely one of the best. Moreover, we run the same offer as above (see Tierra) for a min 4-night stay, all-inclusive program.
Camp in Style in a Fully-furnished Yurt or an Eco Camp Dome
Suggested Options to Lessen the Risk of Covid-19 Contagion
If you can stay in accommodation that is totally separated from other rooms and from the main hotel your risk of Covid-19 contagion is much less than if you are staying in a typical hotel room, adajacento to the other rooms. For this reason, high-end camping, now referred to as “Glamping”, is an excellent option because each accommodation module is totally isolated. Therefore, here are the two we suggest.
Book an all-inclusive with us, for four nights, at either of these two options below and we will throw in a free night in Santiago or other city in Chile (our hotel choice, but a decent place).
We work with Patagonia Camp to provide Torres Del Paine visitors with an exciting camping experience that you won’t soon forget. Their luxury yurts are nestled in a wooded area with views overlooking Lake Toro and on a clear day the Torres del Paine Massif can be seen in the distance. In other words, a stay here offers an opportunity to remain close to nature during your trip.
Staying in a yurt is far from your standard camping experience. Instead, you will get the opportunity to relax in comfortable, well furnished rooms with private en-suite bathrooms, lounges and even jacuzzis!
Our other option is ECO Camp, which is located inside Torres del Paine at the Torres base trail head, provides glamping accommodation to those visitors seeking to leave the minimum carbon footprint from their stay in the park. Their ‘domes’ are situated in the East of Torres Del Paine National Park, and they come in varying levels of comfort and pricing to suit your needs and budget. Consequently, this a great option if you are an ECO warrior and want to be close to the trail head up to the Torres base.
Stay at an Authentic South American Estancia
An estancia is the South America name for a traditional horse, cattle or sheep ranch. Therefore, if you stay at such a place you will often not be far from working farm animals such as sheep, horses and / or cows. In other words, staying in an estancia is all part of the authentic Patagonian experience, and adds yet another dimention to your enjoyment of this part of the world. Our selected estancia partner for when you take a trip to Torres Del Paine is Estancia Cerro Guido and here you can choose from bed and breakfast options or all-inclusive packages with a minimum of four nights stay.
Hotels in and Around the Torres Del Paine Zone
Considering our history and unique local knowledge we work with all the accommodation options in and around Torres del Paine for those visiting this incredible national park. However, we prefer to work with only a selected few that we consider to meat certain minimum standards.
You have the option to stay within the park in a hotel, or around the W Trek trail heads in a refugio, depending on the activities you want to take part in. Moreover, you can, of course, stay at a hotel in the nearby village of Puerto Natales too. That is to say that we consider Puerto Natales to be an excellent alternative, often less costly, and one that can even be considered better than staying nside the park. In conclusion, no matter whether you simply need a comfortable room after a long day of treks, or you want free wifi to share your trip with the world, we have plenty of options to suit your needs.
Some of the Torres del Paine hotels you can choose from include:
Torres del Paine Featured Hotel Accommodation
Among the various accommodation alternatives in and around Torres del Paine we have determined that a few hotels only stand out way above “the rest” and therefore acredited selected properties to be amoung our featured hotels and suppliers.
These suppliers have been selected by us for one or more of their attributes such as: location, views, surroundings, comfort, professional service, “uniqueness”, food and / or overall good feeling that one gets from being there.
The modern, white exterior and block-like appearance of the hotel betrays what is hidden inside, which is a modern, fully wooded interior with stunning views to the Cuernos of Torres del Paine. Hotel Explora was “the pioneer” hotel responsible for a new concept of luxury accommodation throughout Chile.
The main building is carved into the earth so as to be as unobtrusive as possible to the naked eye and camouflages into the natural landscape perfectly. Once past the reception area the tall, floor to ceiling glass windows that run the length of the dining and lounge area enable a shockingly stunning view over to the Torres del Paine. Rooms are built to top specifications with en-suite luxury bathrooms. Great food, wines and educated guides.
Yurt tents covered in durable plastic containing double beds, nice furnishings and en-suite shower rooms combine to create a cosy, high-end feel, stunning views down to the lake and on a clear day to the Cuernos of Paine.
