Torres del Paine Hotels
Torres del Paine Lodging Offers Multiple Options to Stay “at the End of the World“
Touring Torres del Paine National Park in its entirety may require more than 10 days depending on the expectations and time of our visitors. The Park has an extension of 227,298 hectares, packed with magnificent mountains, rivers, lakes, glaciers, and trails that will let you enjoy the beautiful flora and fauna of the place.
In addition to its immense beauty, the park is known for having very unpredictable weather conditions that vary from a sunny day to pouring rain and strong winds throughout the year or even on one single day. All of that, along with the long days of walking and carrying your backpack, will make you want to stay at a lovely place to refill your energy and continue with your journey. That is why the park offers a wide variety of places for you to stay. You will find almost a dozen paid and free campsites, in which you must book months in advance, due to the high demand of visitors. There are also 7 shelters and hotels for every taste.
Campsites, Hostels, and Hotels in Torres del Paine
Accommodations for tours in Torres del Paine range from very basic services such as places to camp for one night, and others with a bunk bed to spend the night and hot water for a quick shower before leaving. Most of them, being in a biosphere reserve that aims to protect the environment, do not have electricity during the night and establish schedules for saving energy and water, which is something you should consider before booking.
The campsites, Torres, Paso, and Italian are free of charge and require a prior reservation.
El Italiano is located very close to the viewpoint and The French Valley. You can simply leave your tent and backpack, and head to the beautiful French Valley, which is only 2 hours away.
The Paso camping area is located in a privileged area of the Park, opposite the Southern Patagonian Ice Field. Like all of our free campsites, camping is only allowed for 1 night. Very close to this campsite is the John Garner pass; an ideal spot for taking pictures of Grey glacier and the suspension bridges.
