About Eco Camp
EcoCamp is situated amongst the trees in Torres del Paine National Park. The geodesic domes have panoramic views of the towers, which turn warm shades of orange and pink as the sun sets behind them. The atmosphere at the camp is very chilled and sociable, with areas indoors and outdoors to hang out and relax after a day of hiking. The camp is close enough to the trail-heads to be able to walk to them to start your hike.
All domes are immersed in nature, resistant to the Patagonian elements and have ceiling windows to look up at the starry night sky. Standard domes offer more basic accommodation but are cozy and snug. Superior and suite domes are larger, with private bathrooms and heating.
Located in the heart of the park and surrounding wilderness, EcoCamp is an ideal place to practise yoga and connect with the magnificent Patagonian landscapes. The yoga dome hosts daily group yoga sessions in the morning and early evening. Private classes are also available.
EcoCamp, the region’s first fully-sustainable travel accommodation, has gained an award-winning reputation for its eco-friendly policies. It minimises the footprint of visitors in Torres del Paine National Park through its implementation of green technology. All electricity (which is very little, as most efforts go into efficiency and electricity saving) comes from a micro-hydro turbine and photovoltaic panels. Electricity is limited and only available to guests for charging camera batteries and laptops. Composting toilets, and bringing as little paper, tin and plastic into the wilderness as possible, are all ways the camp reduces its impact on the environment. All waste brought in is recycled. The camp uses local products and employs staff from the area in its social commitment to the region. It is also a supporter of the Legacy Fund, which runs projects that improve the environment, the community, and the tourism in Torres del Paine.
I enjoyed the most stunning sunrise of my entire month-long trip from the door of my dome at the EcoCamp – the three dark silhouettes of the towers backed by bright pink and gold skies. The views from EcoCamp will blow you away.
