Accommodation

EcoCamp Patagonia

Ecocamp Patagonia is located in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park in Chile, with views of the majestic granite towers. The region’s first sustainable lodge south of the Amazon and the first of its kind in the Patagonian wilderness, EcoCamp offers upscale camping in domes inspired by the region’s ancient nomadic inhabitants.

EcoCamp Patagonia Suite Dome
(Heating & Private bathroom, 28m²/300ft²)

Suite domes were designed to further our goal of providing comfort in a natural setting with minimal environmental impact, and also maintain the hotel’s familiar and cozy vibe. The domes have comfortable double or twin beds, a wood stove and a private bathroom with a state-of-the-art composting toilet.

EcoCamp Patagonia Suite Dome Loft
(2 floors, Heating & Private bathroom, 37m²/398ft²)

Suite dome lofts are two-storey domes which fit up to four people and have comfortable double or twin beds both up and downstairs. These domes, ideal for families or groups of friends, come with a wood stove, a private terrace and a private bathroom with a state-of-the-art composting toilet.

EcoCamp Patagonia Superior Dome
(Heating & Private bathroom, 23m²/250ft²)

Spacious, comfortable and equipped with private bathrooms, Superior Domes are the optimum choice for trekkers wanting that bit more space and comfort at the end of a long day’s walk. Each Superior Dome has comfortable queen-size or twin beds, a propane heater, skylight windows and a private bathroom with a sophisticated composting toilet

EcoCamp Patagonia Standard Dome
(Shared bathroom, 10m²/108ft²)

EcoCamp Standard domes were the world’s first lodge accommodation in geodesic shape. They are resistant to the strong Patagonian winds, and come equipped with two single beds (doubles on request), cozy fleece blankets and feather quilts. There are windows in the ceiling for stargazing. Standard domes include shared bathrooms which are large, comfortable and gender divided.

Note: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we will not be involved in the Standard Dome sharing option this season. All standard domes will be reserved for individual travelers or travelers from the same reservation group.

Itinerary

Day 1Your Patagonian Adventure Starts

Torres del Paine National Park

In the morning, you will be picked up from the airport or your hotel in Punta Arenas and driven to EcoCamp Patagonia, located in the world-famous Torres del Paine National Park. Alternatively, you can start your trip in El Calafate (see our weekly transfer board for EcoCamp’s pick-up and drop-off schedule). On the way, we will make a stop in Puerto Natales, a small, lively town on the shores of “Seno de Ultima Esperanza,” where we enjoy a hearty local lunch. The journey is scenic and highly atmospheric, featuring many wild birds and wonderful Patagonian landscapes. The day ends with our arrival and overnight stay at EcoCamp Patagonia, nestled in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park and with a prime view of the majestic Torres.

Overnight at EcoCamp Patagonia.

Day 2Cycling through Estancia Laguna Azul & Cañadón Macho

Torres del Paine National Park

After breakfast, we’ll start our biking adventure. The 7 km morning bike excursion follows a route inside the Laguna Azul Estancia close to where it meets Baguales, heading up to Saltos Las Chinas.

Once we are back at Laguna Azul, we will enjoy our box lunch with a beautiful view of the Towers and when we are ready to continue, the van will take us to the next bike track.

This 4 km biking excursion follows a single track through Cañadón Macho, finishing at a junction with the road near Cascada Paine. Although this excursion is not too demanding, there are some sections of the trail that have some difficulty at the point where Cañadon Macho crosses a meadow and starts climbing, followed by an undulating stretch of descent, which is a little steep and rocky.

Overnight at EcoCamp Patagonia.

Day 3Kayak on Grey River

Torres del Paine National Park

After breakfast at EcoCamp, we will head off at 7:30 AM to the Serrano area in the western sector of the park arriving at around 9 AM at Serrano Base. From here, we will board another vehicle and head to the Pingo River where we will take part in a safety talk (20 minutes approx.). Afterwards, it’s time to get into the water! Once our kayaks are in, we will move gently with the river’s current towards the Grey Lake Peninsula to see the glacier’s impressive icebergs. After enjoying the moment, it’s time to continue down the Grey River for the next 3 hours. At Puente Grey, we’ll stop to eat our box lunch before continuing downstream to the confluence of the Grey and Serrano Rivers. Around 20 minutes later we’ll return to where our adventure started, at Villa Serrano, after an amazing day on the water. Then we take the van returning to EcoCamp for our evening aperitif and meal.

Overnight at Ecocamp Patagonia.

Day 4Patagonia Horseback Riding

Torres del Paine National Park

One of the best ways to immerse yourself in the spectacular scenery of Patagonia is to ride through it on horseback. After a hearty breakfast at EcoCamp, we’ll begin around 9:30 AM with an induction talk (1 hour approx.) before heading out on our 13 km journey. We will start by making our way around the immense Lake Nordenskjold, with its heart-achingly beautiful views of Mount Almirante Nieto and Cerro Paine, and pass over the ice-cold Patagonian rivers. Keep your eyes peeled for the local flora and fauna who call this land their home, including foxes, condors and dense groupings of lenga forests. We’ll pick up the pace on the beach, and at around 1 PM we will stop for lunch at Paine River. After a full day taking in the sights and sounds of the area, we will head back to EcoCamp around 3 PM to get some rest and enjoy an evening cocktail.

Overnight at Ecocamp Patagonia.

Day 5Cerro Paine Trek

Torres del Paine National Park

We’ll leave after a tasty breakfast at EcoCamp to head to Cerro Paine, a nearby mountain characterized by its 2 imposing peaks. We’ll hike along the mountain for half an hour, which allows us to warm up while admiring the view of the surrounding pampas. The challenge begins as we start climbing the eastern part of Cerro Paine. We cross the lenga forest with the sound of the local birds and enjoy a few stops to observe the immense Almirante Nieto Mountain and its glacier on our left side. With luck, we will follow the tracks of the puma as the towers come into full view. A nice place for lunch, isn’t it? As we are ready to start the steepest part of the hike, we leave the forest and hike on the rock. As we go up, we can admire the spectacular panoramic view of the immense pampas and the mountains in the distance, like the Balmaceda mountain. We’ll walk upward for about an hour up to 1500 m/4920 ft to reach the eastern peak of Cerro Paine, which offers an unforgettable lookout of the towers and the Ascencio Valley. After chilling and taking in one of the most striking views of the national park, we will backtrack along the same trail and return to EcoCamp.

Overnight at Ecocamp Patagonia.
