Torres del Paine National Park has five refugios—large cabins with beds, meal service, and a small shop for food and supplies—along the hiking routes. In recent years, refugios have begun renting tents, sleeping bags, and sleeping pads, as well as offering all meals including packed lunches. 

The Torres del Paine “W” Circuit can be completed while staying exclusively at refugios (Chileno, Los Cuernos, Paine Grande, and Grey). The "O" Circuit requires at least one night camping (camping rentals are available). 

Refugios make trekking considerably easier but are expensive: a made bed and full board costs between $81 and $112 per person. Meals are filling but certainly not gourmet. The biggest sellers at refugios are wine and beer—at the end of the day hobbling trekkers unite for priceless mountain views and free-flowing drinks.
