Inspected By Experience Chile


This is the place seen on nearly all the classic pictures of Torres del Paine. The small building on an island dwarfed by the massive Cuernos of Paine.

The building that has the spectacular view contains the restaurant and only from there do you get the direct sight of the Torres del Paine cuernos.

There are two categories of room here. One is superior offering decent-level accommodation, but incredibly no views to the stunning Central Massif, except two. The other category is the standard room block of older, but refurbished rooms that all face into a small courtyard and offer no views to anywhere – but accommodation is comfortable.

This is a good place to stay for logistics if you need to take the catamaran over to Paine Grande or if you want a hotel for the central part of the W trek and not a refugio.

We can include this property in your Patagonia itinerary.

Most people will have seen a picture of the Cuernos of Paine and a small building on an island connected by a foot bridge to the shore. The building on the island is Hotel Pehoe. It is located in the heart of Torres del Paine, on a tiny island on Pehoe Lake. Built originally as a fisherman’s lodge it has expanded over the years into a hotel for visitors to Torres del Paine.

The main building contains the restaurant and it is from here where you get a rather stunning close-up view to the Cuernos of Paine. However, being that this building has not changed much since its construction, the windows through which the great can be seen are, unfortunately, held together by thick, wooden window frames that break the view in many places.

The accommodation blocks are set to the west of the main building. The superior rooms are reasonable, but only two have a view to the Cuernos. The rest have an ordinary view out to the main building or part of the lake.

The standard rooms are small, but renovated to offer decent accommodation. However, there are no views out of the standard rooms because they all face into an inner court-yard garden area. To arrange your accommodation with us, email us…
