See the famous “foehn” winds on the Lake Nordenskjöld

When you’re hiking up the Francés Valley, don’t forget to stop for a minute and take a look behind you! As you climb higher, it’s awesome to see the famous “foehn” winds zipping around Lake Nordenskjöld like little tornadoes. These occur due to a unique microclimate, in which dry air drifts over the mountaintops and then sweeps down its slope, gaining speed as it gets warmer and approaches the lake. It is quite a sight to behold!

After your hike up to the Francés Valley and Británico lookouts, warm up and recharge your mind and body by sharing memories with other hikers over a hot dinner at the restaurant.

Fully Made or Simple Bed

Have fun, meet new people and sleep well. Mountain hostels are mixed dormitory rooms with bunk beds for 6 people, a shared bathroom and hot showers. Choose between a fully made bed, equipped with a sleeping bag and a pillow, or save US $5 per night and carry your own sleeping bag.

There is no cooking inside the mountain hostel, so if you do not contract a meal plan, you can cook outside in the camping area. Make it all-inclusive with a full or half board meal plan.

Price per night for the entire room with 6 beds:

  • September, October and April: USD $570.
  • November-March: USD $700.

Note: Due to adaptations to prevent the spread of COVID-19, only reservations per entire room will be allowed. Each room has occupancy with 6 beds available.

Delicious, nutritious food for your hike

When hiking Torres del Paine, you are going to be hungrier than normal, due to the amount of exercise and dramatic temperatures, at both ends of the hot and cold spectrum. It’s important to refuel your body with sufficient and adequate nutrition, not only to keep you going on the trail, but also to keep your spirits high and make sure your experience is as enjoyable as it can be.

We offer full board (breakfast, box lunch and dinner) and half board (breakfast and dinner) meal plans, which makes sure you have the food you need and also significantly lowers the weight of your backpack. Meals are set menus with a vegetarian option.

Aside from the scheduled meals, the restaurants in our mountain hostels offer hot and cold snacks from 10:00am – 10:00pm.

  • - Full board (breakfast, box lunch and dinner): USD $80
  • - Half board (breakfast and dinner): USD $56
  • - Vegetarian option (book in advance)

Excellent service and very polite and friendly. The mountain hostels are at top international standards. The best we experienced in Puerto Natales.

Tripadvisor Review

Excellent trekking and a wonderful place with unmissable views. My son and I hiked the W Circuit for 4 days and it was not wasted, everything was just fabulous. The contrast between the mountains and the lakes make it a really special place. It requires a basic level of physical preparation, but nothing that cannot be managed.
