Torres del Paine Road Distances
Emergency Petrol (Gasoline)
At the Posada Rio Serrano, next to the Park Admin close to Posada Rio Serrano, there is SOMETIMES a small supply of petrol (gas), but it is always best to ensure that you have a full tank before you leave Puerto Natales. There is also a very small petrol station at Cerro Castillo, but this may be out of supply as it is so small and should not be replied upon.
Routes in to Torres del Paine
The Cueva Milodon Route: from Puerto Natales will lead to the Rio Serrano sector with access to:
Patagonian Camp, Hostel Rio Serrano, Cabanas Paine, Park Admin, Hosteria Lago Grey and Navigation Grey as well as the Explora Hotel, Hosteria Pehoe and Pudeto.
The Cueva Milodon road is accessed by taking the road out of Puerto Natales in the direction towards the airport and Cerro Castillo. After about 10km there will be a LEFT TURN to “Cueva Milodon”. This road leads to the Milodon Cave and then continues into the Rio Serrano sector of TDP and will take about one hour to drive the distance between Puerto Natales and Rio Serrano.
The Cerro Castillo Route: via the border village of Cerro Castillo, is better to get to Mirador del Payne, Estancia Cerro Guido, Laguna Amarga and Hosteria Las Torres. Explora Hotel, Hosteria Pehoe and Pudeto can also be reached on this route.
