Please note this trip is an EcoCamp Extension and is to be enjoyed as an extension to one of our Ecocamp Patagonia Tours!
Your booking is based on Chilean pesos (CLP), but you pay in US$ (USD), using the exchange rate valid on the day of payment which will be shown in your order. This exchange rate may vary between the date you pay your deposit and the date you pay your outstanding balance, but rest assured this is the best way to keep our prices competitive and ensure the best rate for you!
What is an EcoCamp Extension?
EcoCamp Extras are excursions you can book in addition to our regular EcoCamp programs, to enhance your experience in Patagonia!. These tours can take place before or after your main program but we strongly recommend doing them afterwards to maximise your arrival experience at EcoCamp with your fellow trekking/Safari group members. Transport in and out of the park is not included as these services are covered by your regular program with EcoCamp. If you wish to book an EcoCamp Extra without any other EcoCamp program please contact us so we can give you a quote.

Transport during excursions in vans and 4x4
The vast unbroken stretch of ocean to the west and south of the South American continent leaves the Patagonian Andes very exposed to the saturated winds that circle the Antarctic landmass. Also, both the strong marine and the South Patagonic Ice field influence make the weather hard to predict. In spring or early summer, fine weather may deteriorate almost without warning, bringing rains and eventually snow. Even in summer (December to March) you should come prepared to find cold- strong winds (up to 130 km/hr) and rainfalls. The summer’s average temperature is 11ºC/52ºF (24ºC max, 2ºC min).
You must be able to walk 4-12km and carry your own backpack.
What you need to bring
Appropriate clothes (hiking boots, comfortable clothes, windbreaker, sunhat, sunglasses, sunblock, water bottle, personal backpack) and Box Lunch provided by EcoCamp.
We reserve the right to change the order of the days in any itinerary at the discretion of the trip guide and based on operational considerations. The trip guide can modify, change or eliminate part of the itinerary based on safety/weather considerations.
