Inspected By Experience Chile


Refugio Central is located almost beside the Torres del Paine Welcome Centre a few kms from the Laguna entrance into the Park. A shuttle service operates between the Laguna Amarga car park to the Welcome Centre. It is a busy, large refugio and at the trail head that runs up to Refugio Chileno (2.5hrs) and on to the Torres base (4.5hrs). If Chileno is full this is an alternative or as a place to rest after or before the trek.

We can include this property as part of your W Trek itinerary.
