A great location just like all the refugios but a real haven for rock climbers which meant wall to wall people and, in our case, anyway, a lot of music and noise late into the night. Maybe not always like that. Guys running the place...More

I didn't stay at the Refugio, but I hiked up to it. It was a nice hike, about three to four hours long, and it is worth seeing the Refugio at the end. Every turn was different, and it stayed interesting. It's a little rough...More

You can do this hike in one day (~8-10 hours) but it is an incredible time staying at the Refugio--getting to know locals, the cooks and soaking in the environment. You can stay in a tent or in the dorms. Food is cheap, 90AR$ for...More

Since we were camping at Coihues it was very easy for us to simply begin to walk towards Frey. We're pretty fast walkers, it took us about 3 1/2 hours. Beautiful hike. The Refugio was clean and cozy and it was nice being able to...More
