Here, on this page we will explain, briefly, what the different types of accommodation are along the W Trek trail. Further down the page you will find a block of pictures showing each refugio in vertical columns organized in and order of west, middle and east. These reflect the different valleys of the W trek trail. Under each valley title are the refugios located in those sectors. It should be noted that on this page we do not talk about the camping options. For this information, please click through to the W trek Accommodation page – link below.

For much more information such as explained definitions of all types of accommodation along the W Trek trail please click through to our W Trek Accommodation Page HERE.


Further below is an excellent map showing the locations of all the refugios and camping along the W Trek Trail.

What are the Torres del Paine Refugios?

Torres del Paine W Trek refugios are hostels. Rooms are dormitories furnished with bunk beds, with 6 people to a room, shared with other guests. Domos Frances are dome-shaped units, with metalic frames over which is tough, plastic sheeting, and the rooms here are also with a bunk bed set up. Bedding by way of either a sleeping bag or duvet is supplied for guests staying inside refugios or domos.

What is Serviced Camping?

Adjacent to the refugios is serviced camping, which comprises ground level platforms upon which are tents, already set up, ground mats and sleeping bags, with inner liners, provided.

What is Premium Camping?

Another level of serviced camping is now the premium camping. This comprises good quality tents (already set up) atop a raised platform, ground mats and sleeping bags, with inner liners, provided. The fact that the platforms are high off the ground protects the inhabitants of the tent from receiving the cold ground air into the tent.

Meal Plan

The full board meal plan is also offered at all refugios, serviced and premium camping, meaning hot dinner, breakfast and a lunch box to go or lunch at the refugio (if you stay in), and in that order.
