Perched on a hilltop in a place so naturally splendid it was voted the eighth wonder of the world, dwarfed by the sheer size and majesty of Torres del Paine National Park’s eponymous granite spires in the background, the mushroom-headed domes of EcoCamp Patagonia huddle close to the ground against the cold. Wind ripples at the ivy-green tarp covers, dappled by sunlight and passing clouds. Staff in cozy sweaters and fleeces bustle around, delivering fresh sheets, blankets, and fluffed pillows.

Chileans love a good party, and at no time is this more evident than when they celebrate Independence Day!
Falling on the 18 and 19 of September, Chile’s “Fiestas Patrias” is a national celebratory affair, a multi-day extravaganza of grand parades, traditional food and drinks, music, dance, and partying!
Twenty five. A quarter of a century old, age of the silver anniversary, a nice square number. A lot can happen in twenty five years.
The fifth annual Patagonian International Marathon is just around the corner! Come mid-September, the roads of Ultima Esperanza Province will thunder with the pounding of runners’ shoes as competitors from all over the world race through some of the most staggeringly beautiful scenery on Earth!
Patagonia is a vast region which, even in this age of man, still retains an essence of untamed wilderness, transcending the whims of mankind and its international borders. Despite some frosty historical relations (and more than a slight soccer rivalry), South American neighbors Chile and Argentina each lay claim to parts of this spectacular landscape, and each country takes great pride in proclaiming the majesty of its Patagonian icons.
As I was a child, my parents always described Chile to me as a long and thin country, with heaps of giant mountains. That’s about all I knew about the land. I had no idea Chile had so many contrasts that made it so unique compared to the other countries in South America.
At EcoCamp, we always listen to our guests and take their comments into account. TripAdvisor is a powerful tool to constantly improve the quality of our services and to ensure our guests are happy with their experience.

At Cascada Expediciones and EcoCamp Patagonia we believe in giving back to our local environment which is why we have pledged to give a sum of money to the Torres del Paine Legacy Fund. The fund supports sustainable projects around the national park - and we are teaming up with Charity Buzz to create a charity auction of our Wildlife Safari to raise money for this awesome project!
"Where's that coming from? That rhythmic pounding, that galloping sound. Starting off from far away, it's getting closer...as if about to pass right in front of us!”
Thankfully, it's not a guy hiding behind a tree clapping coconut shells together! Far better, that galloping signals the arrival of a herd of baguales, or wild Patagonian horses, who roam the steppe after escaping the gauchos’ domesticity.
The Atacama Desert has been receiving a fair amount of media attention recently, thanks to the miniscule amount of rain which has given life to a carpet of pink flowers. These flowers may not rear their gorgeous heads for very long, but this desert, the driest of its kind on our planet, has a lot more to offer in terms of breathtaking beauty.
