Other Useful Information:
IMPORTANT: In 2016 the Torres del Paine National Park Service has prohibited campers to cook their own food at the campsites in an effort to protect the cleanliness and preservation of the park environment. Therefore, we no longer offer options 'without meals'.
The Refugios have the following referential meals schedules:
For the preservation of the park, please do not leave trash on the trails, take it out of the park in a plastic bag (Leave No Trace philosophy). Please use water and electricity in a conscious manner.
For environmental purposes, in some of the Refugios, the electricity is turned off during the night, between 23.00 PM and 07.00 AM. The use of certain electronic devices is not possible due to the fact that they may overcharge our systems (for example: hairdryers). Please bring enough batteries.
Concerning connectivity: The National Park and the Lodges don't have cellphone or Internet connectivity due to their remote location. GPS devices work properly all over the Torres del Paine National Park.
