Torres del Paine Fuel-Filling Points

Distances Between Locations

If you have your own car please be aware that distances within the park can be quite long between refugios, hosterias and campsites. Therefore, it is imperative that you have a full tank of petrol (gas) prior to setting off from Puerto Natales, for example. However, at Cerro Castillo, about halfway between Puerto Natales and the Torres del Paine Park entrances, sometimes has petrol, but can also be sold out.

Moreover, there is an emergency supply of petrol in the park near the CONAF centre close to Posada Rio Serrano, but again, this should not be relied upon.
