Accommodation details
Hotels, Refugios & Camping
We use a standard international style hotel in Buenos Aires at the start and end of the trip, then comfortable and welcoming small hotels when staying in towns in the south of Argentina. Within Torres del Paine in Chile we will stay in ‘Refugios’ located within the national park along the trails. They are very well run and sociable places and have all the amenities we will need; including hot showers, food, drink, and comfortable bunk beds, usually in dormitory style rooms.

When trekking in the Fitzroy region we stay in fixed campsites that are located in a wild area. There is a dinning tent and all the necessary camping equipment such as sleeping bags, mats etc. are provided. Please note that there are no showers for these days and no conventional WC. A special eco-toilet is on site which is specific to National Park regulations.

The accommodation at Estancia El Condor is in a remote farmhouse located in an idyllic setting next to Lago San Martin. We will have the whole house for the group, some rooms with 3 or 4 beds and other rooms with 2 beds. All rooms have a private bathroom.

Single accommodation can be booked for the 5 hotel nights (Buenos Aires x2, Calafate, Chalten x2) but doesn't apply to the nights in refugios, and cannot be guaranteed for the camping or farmhouse stay.

These are ‘land only’ prices which require you to book your own flights and join the rest of the group on Day 1 of the trip. For more information please see Trip Notes
