The Shelter locates on the shore of Pehoé Lake, facing the southern face of Paine Grande hill, crowned by Punta Bariloche in the plain that terminates Quebrada de los Vientos. It locates in the area of the old Refugio Pehoé, and sited in a strategic position of the primitive zone of the park for excellence, it is only accessible through lacustrine way or walking through the trekking paths of the park. It forms part of the circuit and the W-shape road, being a base camp for excellence.

It is strategically located in the old area of Pehoé Shelter and is only accessible via Pehoé Lake or by walking the trekking routes of the park. It forms part of the W Circuit and is considered as the base camp.

The Shelter can hold 100 people in 22 bedrooms with 3 and 2 bunks each. These rooms have a lovely view to Pehoé Lake, the heights of Paine Grande, Valle del Francés and the east face of Cuernos del Paine. Each one of them has comfortable bunks and drawers to put away gear. However, we have a custody service and a safety box to keep valuable belongings.

The toilets are on the first and second floor and have wash basins, toilets and hot water showers, separated for men and women.



The Shelter has a restaurant service for basic meals  (american breakfast, lunch and dinner ) which is a self service restaurant. In addition to this, it is possible to ask for box lunches  for those who will do trekking that day or just savour a good coffee or beverage as well as tasty sandwichs, beer and wine.


The bar is on the second floor above the dining room. The “Paine Grande Bar” offers an assorted selection of chilean wine. It is open from 16:00 to 24:00 p.m.
At the bar, at the tables or in comfortable armchairs, we can enjoy an excellent Pisco Sour with a lovely view to the southern face of Paine Grande, to the eastern face of  Cuernos del Paine or to the green waters of Pehoé Lake. Without a shadow of doubt it is an excepcional place to plan the next walk or to comment the adventures in Patagonia

Living Rooms

For those who are staying at the Shelter, moments of rest and relax with their trekking companions can be enjoyed sitting next to a warm stove in a comfortable armchair with an unimprovable view.


Although one is sort of disconnected with the outside world, the Shelter has an Internet service which consists of two personal computers where we can connect ourselves with the outside world, check our e-mails and maybe even send the  photographs of our trekkings in the park.
