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.
Children from 6 to 12 years receive a 50% discount if staying with their parents in the same dome (advisable 6 years minimum age). Discount will be applied after the online inquiry. Check out the kids' guide to EcoCamp!

Facts

Departures

Regular departures are available every day from September to May. 

Starting / finishing point

The trip starts every morning with pickups and drop-offs in Punta Arenas, Puerto Natales or El Calafate.Please visit our Weekly Transfer Board for details of EcoCamp pick up and drop off times from both Chile and Argentina.

Physical demands

The easy excursion options do not demand extensive physical activity, other than walking a maximum of two consecutive hours over fairly flat terrain. We stop as many times as necessary depending on the rhythm of the group.
Travelers doing the active excursions will find them more energetic and to enjoy these more active treks 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 don’t need to worry about altitude.

Children policy

  • Minimum age 6 to participate in the program.
  • Children aged 6 to 9 are welcome to participate in nature walks.
  • Children aged 10 to 12 may participate in trekking excursions but the family must hire a private assistant guide.
  • Children aged 12 and up are welcome to participate in all activities and are treated as adults.
  • Check our Children Discount Policy for more details.

Transport

In Torres del Paine and throughout Patagonia, transportation is in minivans that normally seat 8 to 14 people. Pick-up/drop-off times will be confirmed by our local operations team. An exclusive toll-free emergency number will be available for additional support while you are in Chile.
Check our Weekly Transfer Board details for more information about pick-up and drop-off times to/from EcoCamp.

Weather

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. Fine weather may deteriorate almost without warning, bringing rain and even snow. Even in summer (December to March) you should come prepared to find cold- strong winds (up to 130 km/hr) and rainfall. Summer’s average temperature is 11ºC (52ºF), ranging between 2 to 24ºC (35 to 75ºF).

What you need to bring

  • Passengers need to be prepared for summer and winter all at once. We recommend:
  • A day backpack (15-20 liters - to carry a camera, glasses, raincoat, etc)
  • Water-resistant trekking or hiking boots
  • Extra shoes for evenings or in case others get wet
  • Waterproof jacket
  • 2 pairs of wool socks
  • Fleece jacket or sweater
  • Shorts or comfortable loose pants
  • Sun protection (glasses, hat, lip balm, and sunscreen)
  • Cash to buy extra drinks, snacks or souvenirs in Torres del Paine National Park
  • Optional: Capilene underwear for the upper and lower body

Itinerary modifications

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.

During the shoulder and low season (October and April), some excursions may be canceled or modified for reasons of security. For example, the Navigation on Grey Lake, the excursion to French Valley and the Tower Base trek. In any case, we will either modify the original itinerary or offer you a good alternative within the park.
