After returning from Lago Grey spend the night at Paine Grande, a very well developed Refugio and camp ground. As a hub on the trail, doubling as the dock for the ferry, this is one of the busiest Refugios you'll encounter. That's not necessarily a bad thing - the camp kitchens and bathroom blocks here are, arguably, the best of all the Refugios.
The lodge itself has an on-site mini mart, which is well stocked, as well as a large restaurant serving up an array of different food. The highlight, though, has to be the upstairs bar! Grab a bottle of wine and enjoy the outstanding view across Lake Pehoe and mountains. The sunset is particularly spectacular here, with the afternoon light painting Cerro Paine Grande with pinks and oranges.
