Especially designed for nature lovers, this extension program explores Torres del Paine’s unparalleled terrain with an experienced team of outdoor trackers. Discover and photograph the stunning landscapes, sublime sunrises and the native flora and fauna. Allow yourself to be humbled by the moments of stillness this region is so known for as you observe the park's puma, Patagonia's elusive big cat.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 offer the Standard Dome sharing option this season. All Standard Domes must be reserved for individual travelers or travelers from the same reservation group.
Regular departures are available on request.
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 recommend doing them afterward to maximize your arrival experience at EcoCamp with your fellow trekking or 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.
This is an easy trip, which doesn’t demand extensive physical activity, other than walking a maximum of 2 consecutive hours over fairly flat terrain. We stop as many times as necessary depending on the rhythm of the group.
In Torres del Paine and throughout Patagonia, transportation is in minivans that seat 8 to 14 people. Pick-up/drop-off times are shown on the Weekly Transfer Board. These times are approximate and will be confirmed by our local operations team. An exclusive toll-free emergency number will be available for anyone needing additional support while they are in Chile.
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).
Guests need to be prepared for all seasons in one day. We recommend a day backpack (10 liters - to carry your camera, glasses, raincoat, etc), trekking or hiking boots, extra shoes for evenings or in case other pairs get wet, waterproof jacket, 2 pairs of socks, fleece jacket or sweater, shorts or comfortable loose pants, sun protection (glasses, hat, lip balm and screen) and optional underwear for the upper and lower body. Also bring cash to buy extra drinks,snacks or souvenirs in Torres del Paine National Park.
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.
