Itinerario

Flexible Itinerary

Torres del Paine National Park

With EcoCamp Wildlife Safari, you choose the activities!
Nature walks, treks, bike excursions and more are yours to pick from - it all depends on your mood, weather conditions and travel companions' preferences! Plus, our private excursion option gives you the freedom every day to choose any excursion that matches your special interests and wishes (ask our travel expert for more details).

IMPORTANT NOTES

All excursions are subject to availability and weather conditions
There are no excursions on the first and last days of a program, as these days are used for transfers to pick-ups and drop-offs at the beginning/end of a program. This is due to the long distances between towns in Patagonia and the time it takes to drive from Torres del Paine to nearby towns.


Itinerary

Alojamiento

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!

EcoCamp Patagonia Suite Dome

(Heating & Private bathroom, 28m²/300ft²)
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.

EcoCamp Patagonia Suite Dome Loft

(2 floors, Heating & Private bathroom, 37m²/398ft²)
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.

EcoCamp Patagonia Superior Dome

(Heating & Private bathroom, 23m²/250ft²)
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 Patagonia Standard Dome

(Shared bathroom, 10m²/108ft²)
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.
Nota: Debido al brote de COVID-19, no estaremos ofreciendo la opción de compartir Domo Estándar esta temporada. Todos los domos estándar se reservarán para viajeros individuales o viajeros del mismo grupo de reserva.

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).

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.
