What is glamping in Torres del Paine?

If you want to experience glamping in Patagonia, Torres del Paine's eco-friendly camps are some of the most luxurious and characterful you can find. Nestled amongst the trees, with beautiful views, comfortable beds and tasty meals, these accommodations provide a quirky alternative to a regular hotel, refugio or campsite, whilst being more affordable than the luxury lodges in the park.

There are two main camps in Torres del Paine, and although there are many similarities between them, there are some clear differences as well. The information below should help you get a feel for which one is right for you.

Where can I go glamping?

Patagonia Camp

Situated just outside the national park with spectacular views across Lago Toro to the Paine massif, these beautifully-finished yurts allow you to feel at one with nature in a tranquil setting. Explore the private land, finding the less trodden path and an abundance of birds amongst the trees.

EcoCamp

Stay in your own cosy geodesic dome between the trees, with stunning sunset views of the towers. A relaxed, sociable atmosphere provides a great place to stay after a day's hiking in the park. Use the camp as a base for trekking, horse riding and puma tracking. Stay in comfort, and because each building is an eco lodge, you'll know you are having minimal impact on this amazing landscape.
