Camping CLP w/ VAT USD w/o VAT

The campsite is the most economical choice between different types of accommodation in the Torres del Paine National Park. The price for camping is per person and not per tent and it is not possible to reserve specific locations. Our suggestion is that those who stay at the campsite should be people with experience in the matter, and if they decide to bring their own equipment also count with the physical conditions to endure heavy trails with load.
