Cheap lodging in Torres Del Paine

I am a student traveling around Patagonia for two weeks. I plan on visiting Torres Del Paine for about three days, and I would like to find cheap lodging in or very near to the park.

(also, any suggestions of tour operators would be helpful as I would like to do more than just ride the bus through the park!)

The cheapest lodging in the park is camping, but you're probably better off staying in refugios unless you're bringing your own tent for some other reason anyway. From memory, I think it's something like US$20-30 a night to stay at the refugios if you pay in US dollars, in cash, or US$60-70 for full board and lodging (all meals including a boxed lunch). You could try taking the catamaran across Lago Pehoe and staying at Refugio Pehoe for a couple of nights, and doing some long day trips from there up to the Grey Glacier and the French Valley, or staying in Refugio Las Torres or Refugio Chileno and walking up to the towers and the Valle del Silencio.

Pierre: Nice web. Why all this travel companies, tour provider´s web sites , in their section: "WHO we are" never picture themselves in person and generally talk very generally ? ..smiling faces, people and "curves" sell in a "image" world .. agree ? ...

We should be in the Chile forum but I guess you are going to patagonia in Argentina too.

This is well worth reading about the Torres:

As mentioned, the local tour operators or even your accomodation can book refugios for you.

This has the names of a few places:
