Eco Camp Patagonia
Discover Chile’s Eco Chic
by Mackenzie Lowry
EcoCamp Patagonia offers all the fun of sleeping under the stars, without the hassle of bug spray overloads and triple lined sleeping bags. In these igloo-like geodesic domes, visitors to the Torres del Paine National Park can sleep under a view of the beautiful night sky after a long day’s adventures. Although protected from the natural elements at night, visitors are out exploring the world through guided treks and wildlife excursions each day.
EcoCamp Patagonia strives to provide a fun, environmentally friendly trip for all visitors. Guests at EcoCamp can experience two story Suite Domes, or go for a community feeling by dining together, sharing communal areas, and overlapping adventures. There’s plenty to explore in the Torres del Paine National Park, from waterfalls to wildlife, to mountains and glaciers, and even ancient cave paintings. With the ever changing natural landscape, the sights of each day are more exciting than the days before.
The staff and fellow visitors at EcoCamp all encourage passionate exploration. They offer adventure packages and activities like the wildlife photo adventures, 7-day treks, multi-sports adventures, and yoga. They also offer individual activities such as kayaking, skiing, horseback riding, and surfing. When home base is right smack in the middle of the wilderness, all the beauties and excitement nature has to offer are easily accessible.
The EcoCamp models their nature respecting ways after the nomadic Kaweskar tribe that roamed the area during the 15th century. The wanderlust tribe traveled around building circular huts for shelter, wherever they camped. When the Kaweskar moved on they left no heavy footprints in the wilderness they enjoyed. The EcoCamp Patagonia hopes to provide an enriching natural experience for all guests, while simultaneously teaching people how to respect and love the environment.
