Los Glaciares and Torres del Paine, two of the world's best national parks, are waiting for you! Join us for 8 days of spectacular hikes, sublime views and unique fauna encounters during this once-in-a-lifetime trip to Chilean and Argentine Patagonia.
Ecocamp Patagonia is located in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park in Chile, with a unique view of the majestic granite towers. The region’s first fully sustainable accommodation south of the Amazon and the first of its kind in the Patagonian wilderness, EcoCamp offers upscale camping in geodesic domes inspired by the region’s ancient nomadic inhabitants.
Featuring views of Argentinian Lake, Hosteria Los Hielos offers accommodations in El Calafate. The common living room offers views of the Patagonian landscape and guests can enjoy a sauna room.

Guests are offered a daily breakfast with sweets and homemade pastries made with regional fruits.
Regular Departures are available every day on request from October 2019 to April 2020.
This trip requires a moderate level of physical activity. We can make as many stops as is necessary depending on the rhythm of the group. Travelers doing active excursions will find them sufficiently energetic. To enjoy these options, it is essential to be in shape before arriving. All trails visited in the programs are under 1,000 m / 3,000 ft high so passengers need not worry about altitude.

In Torres del Paine and throughout Patagonia, transportation is in minivans that normally seat between 8 to 14 people. Pick-up/drop-off times as shown in the Weekly Transfer Board are approximate and will be confirmed by our local operations team.
The vast unbroken stretch of ocean to the west and south of the South American continent leaves the Patagonian Andes very exposed to winds that circle the Antarctic landmass. This means that fine weather may deteriorate almost without warning, bringing rain and even snow. Even in summer (December to March) you should come prepared to find strong cold winds (up to 130 km/hr), rainfall, and more. Summer’s average temperature is 11ºC (52ºF), ranging between 2 to 24ºC (35 to 75ºF).
Passengers need to be prepared for summer and winter all at once. We recommend the following:
The weather in Patagonia can be difficult to plan around at times. We reserve the right to change the order of the days in any itinerary at the discretion of the trip guide based upon operational considerations. The trip guide can modify, change or eliminate any part of the itinerary based on these considerations.
