My most memorable moment was being on top of the mountain looking at the towers. Danny took us on this steep, but less travelled trail to view the Towers. We were the only ones on the trail for most of the day and still provided an amazing view of the Towers and panoramic view of the Patagonian valleys below. Very memorable! Read the full review

Food was perfect in quality and quantity. All of the staff were jovial and knowledgeable and always willing to help. Suite dome was perfect for 3 of us. I wish we had more down time at the base camp to walk around, do short hikes on our own, practice yoga, get a massage.

EcoCamp is a great place for solo travellers because meals are arranged for you to dine with your tour group for the day.

About EcoCamp

Getting to EcoCamp

All stays at Ecocamp include shared minibus transport from/to either Punta Arenas (6hrs) or Puerto Natales (2hrs) at fixed times.

If travelling from/to El Calafate in Argentina, a public coach ticket is included in the price of your trip - this must be reserved as soon as you book.

Semi-private and private transfers from/to El Calafate, Punta Arenas and Puerto Natales outside of the fixed transfer times can be organised, at an extra cost. 

Setting

EcoCamp is situated a short walk from the trailhead of the base of the towers trek. 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 relaxed and sociable, with areas indoors and outdoors to hang out and unwind after a day of hiking.

Domes

Domes are immersed in lenga forest, dotted around the site and interlinked by wooden walkways. They are made to resist the Patagonian elements and have ceiling windows to look up at the starry night sky.

Standard domes offer more basic accommodation but are cosy and snug. Superior and suite domes are larger, with private bathrooms and heating.

Suite domes lofts have even more space and a mezzanine level with an extra bed, so they are perfect for families or groups of friends.

Yoga

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.

Massage

The latest addition to EcoCamp is a massage dome. There is an onsite massage therapist who offers a range of treatments for guests. This cosy pod-like structure provides the ultimate relaxation with views out over the park whilst maintaining complete privacy. Massages can be booked at an additional cost.

Sustainability

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.

The camp is focused on energy efficiency, but the little energy that is used onsite is generated from 100% renewable sources – 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.

The guides at EcoCamp think of themselves as hosts welcoming you into their home, and the entire place brims with conviviality and warmth - it has the spirit of a backpackers’ hostel, but with much better beds!
