Is Refugio Torre Central accessible by car?

Hi, we're thinking of staying at Refugio Torre Central as all the hotels in the park are way beyong our budget. However, I am concrend of wherether this refugio is accessible by road or if we'll have to hike to and from our car every morning and evening.

Thanks a lot!

Take a look at Camping Pehoe

It's not a hotel, but it's very nice and comfortable.

Cheap camping places. Tents, sleeping bags or complete domes for rent.

Hot shower. Amazing views. Good restaurant. Mini market... almost everything!

We rented a car and did the "W" circuit by car, and hiking only the valleys.

This was a last hour decision because I had a knee injury 3 days before the trip, but finally we were very happy because it all turned out quite good!

Give Camping Pehoe a chance!
