Note: The info below is provided in good faith and we cannot be held responsible for any changes or if some facilities mentioned are not available.

The quality of refugio’s varies and not all the camp sites are serviced. Herewith is a brief summary of what is on offer from the refugio’s and serviced camp sites on the “Circuit” and “W” routes:

Refugio Accommodation

A refugio is a hostel. Rooms are dormitories shared with other guests and beds are bunk beds. Guests can book a bed only and bring their own sleeping bag, or book a “cama armada”, which means a bed with bedding. A “cama armada” is available in all the refugios or simple beds + kit, which means a camp/like bed also with bedding. The full board meal plan is also offered at all refugios meaning: hot dinner, breakfast and a lunch box to go or lunch at the refugio if you stay in.

Experience Chile makes reservations for Full Board (All Meals) and beds with bedding.
