I realize this park is in Chile, but it is very close to Argentina so maybe someone in this forum can help me. We've tried to reserve a hotel in the park and it seems they're full or outrageously expensive (the Explorer is over $1000 per night!) Does anyone know of a reasonable hotel/estancia near the park? I found Lodge Cerro Guido which looks nice, but it is described as 30 minutes outside the park. We plan to hike in the park. Thanks so much.

Hi Kris,
I just booked for myself and my group at 2 of the refugios within the park. There's a good listing of hosterias and refugios with websites and email addresses at:

http://www.torresdelpaine.com/ingles/secciones/03/a/directorio.asp

The refugios we're staying at (Chileno & Cuernos) run about US$30 for a bed and about US$60 for bed + meals. Hosterias are more expensive but appear to have more amenities. Book early.

Hi David,

Thanks for the info. I sent an email yesterday, but still haven't received a response from any of the 3 refuges. Did you book online or call them? If you called, do you happen to have the phone number?

When are you staying there? Maybe our paths will cross...

Kris

Hi Kris,

I communicated with Andrea Contreras from the refugios by email at
albergue@lastorres.com

She deals with reservations at all of the lodges that Las Torres operates - Hosteria Las Torres, Refugio Chileno, Refugio Los Cuernos. There may be others that they operate as well, but I am not aware of them. The other company that has a big stake in the park is Fantastico Sur - I know that they operate Regugio Pehoe (full when I contacted them) and possibly Refugio Grey.

My party will be in the park Jan 9th - 12th.

In case you are willing to 'rough it' a bit, there are also campgrounds where you can pitch a tent (I believe they are either very cheap or free); from what I've read of other people's accounts, reservations are either made in person or are almost unnecessary.

I have read about other refugios that are not directly on the perimeter trail, such as Tyndall and Pingo, but I don't know anything about them.

If you have already sent an email to the address I mentioned above, don't worry, Andrea seems to be quite organized and will get back to you.

Hope it works out,
Dave
