Unique camp of private tented domes, offering a sense of connection and proximity to the great outdoors combined with warmth, cosiness and comfort.
Up close to the elements yet cosily protected at the same time, you will enjoy a very special experience at the EcoCamp. This is far from camping as most of us know it – after each day exploring the windswept wilderness of Torres del Paine National Park, you'll return to a warm and comfortable haven.
Accommodation is in tented domes, inspired by native Kaweskar dwellings. Their structure produces minimal environmental impact while providing an efficient thermal and wind resistant unit, and makes the most of the magnificent Patagonian setting.
There are standard domes (with shared bathroom), but we particularly recommend the larger, en suite domes which are snugly furnished and have their own wood-burning heaters. In addition, each has a composting device to process waste and a solar panel to provide energy. Décor makes use of fallen trees or branches, collected leaves and feathers – bringing the surrounding nature indoors.
The superior domes are located in a beech forest, close to the main camp while allowing enough distance to create a separate and independent atmosphere. There are two communal domes that house a dining area, kitchen and lounge.
Using the site as a base, there are a number of guided excursions and treks to undertake in the surrounding landscape, carved by sinuous rivers and glaciers and overlooked by thrusting granite peaks.

What can we say but excellent and would recommend, worth every penny. Superior domes, and facilities were incredible.Washing in and drinking glacial water. The compostable toilet worked perfectly! The bed was incredibly comfortable, and the wood burning stove cosy (could be too cosy!).The activities and organisation of the communal tents were fabulous.The food and wine were amazing. The guides personable and empathetic to all abilities and physical fitness.The scenery and national park wonderful.SD, London
“A stay at the EcoCamp is a must though it's rather pricey. The hike up to the base of the Torres in the National Park is another must! It's 11km each way but well worth even an hour of picnic there. We were blessed with amazing sunny and dry weather which made it easier, the group that went up the day before had rain and snow! But they were still singing its praises!"PY, Hendon
"Location fantastic. The dome was warm and comfortable, but the composting toilet got a bit high after a day or so. Excellent, knowledgeable guides were safety conscious and very attentive at all times."SB, Craven Arms
The domes are excellent and the food in the evenings was the best we had in Chile.CG, Amersham
Loved the 'hobbit hut' where we stayed. Just like camping but proper GlampingJR Harpenden
“I wish I had more time there!!”SK, Richmond
The high point of the holiday was the Eco-Camp at Torres del Paine where we excellent expeditions aided by good weather and the high calibre local guides.TAM, London
“You definitely need to stay 4 nights at Eco Camp to guarantee to be able to go on the trek to the base of the towers which was one of the highlights of our trip.”SP, Welwyn
"The w trek/Ecocamp experience was the best part off the trip for us, all the Ecocamp staff were excellent.”LF, Brentwood
“It was a completely new experience, unlike any other we've had (and we're fairly well travelled people), and we loved every minute of it. We totally approve of the ethics of the camp.. If you have the "get up and go" for the Eco-camp experience DO IT!..”PC, Moreton-in-Marsh
"Enjoyed our stay in Patagonia. Amazing location and the lodges had impressive facilities for where they were - hot water, wood fires, good showers. Most of the guides were really friendly and would do anything you asked, including relighting our fire. We did get the feeling that sometimes organisation and timings were to suit the management staff rather than the guests. It was like being back at school at times. Also the choice of excursions wasn't that diverse which meant that on one day we did our own walk. Breakfast wasn't up to scratch - no choices, hardly any fresh fruit. New Years Eve nothing in addition to one of the normal evenings, although the staff had their own party!"AB, Reading
“Such a nice place and great people and guides. The fires in the tents are magical (not to mention needed against the cold when we were there).”DK, Enfield
