Luxury yurt camp set along a lakeside cliff with spectacular views, combining a sense of immersion in nature with the comforts of a hotel.
Weaving along a clifftop on the shores of Lago Toro, Patagonia Camp lies just outside Torres del Paine National Park, ensconced in spectacular wilderness scenery. Each of its individual luxury yurts has marvellous views, best enjoyed from private terraces that face out towards the lake and the spires of the spellbinding granite massif which dominates the landscape.
The 20 cosy yurts have the facilities of a good hotel: all are equipped with heating, en suite bathroom and even a skylight for stargazing. Inside, simple yet stylish décor takes its cues from local materials, textiles and crafts.
The camp was conceived to blend sympathetically with the ancient environment, and the yurts are sheltered from the wind by forests of southern beech. The entire complex is built on wooden stilts and platforms connected by elevated walkways, including the yurts, massage room and the communal building housing the restaurant, bar and lounge – a warm and welcoming space built from honey-coloured wood and criss-crossed by sturdy beams.
Depending on the length of your stay at the camp, there are several exciting excursions you can make by car and on foot. Drive across the windswept plains to see the highlights of the Torres del Paine National Park, stopping to enjoy horizon-bending panoramic views. Hikes through glorious wilderness, to reach waterfalls and crystal lagoons, or viewpoints from which you can survey the ice-carpeted peaks and glaciers calving into gem-clear, fathomless waters.

AMAZING. Service, food, yurt and excursions were brilliant. Staff were also great. Probably the best place I am ever stayed.CW, Epping
An unforgettable experience - though we were lucky with the weather which is an important factor here. Superb location, beautiful yurts with all the facilities you require. Excellent and attentive staff.Delicious food and superior wine on tap. Tours were brilliant and really well organised to allow for local weather conditions. One of the best places we have ever visited!JC, Wokingham
Good food. Great guide. Shoild have stayed another day.GG, London
"So much better than we expected. We got used to a level of service beyond our dreams. Food was excellent - a little short on vegetarian variety of choice. Developed an addiction for Calafate Sour. Only requests are that they make it clearer what is included in package and what is not at the outset. Also, they could have got a fulller understanding of what we wanted to do during our stay to ensure that everything could be included during our stay - again at the outset at the intro briefing. Still, overall wonderful."JB, Market Harborough
Would recommend this to everyone.They also managed to arrange walks according to ability without any problems.TS, Exmouth
"The yurt bedrooms were great, with stunning views. Good food and excellent wine again (from the Matetic vineyard). The guides were all terrific, hugely enthusiastic and well-informed about the park, the flora and fauna and Chile generally. We were also very impressed that the ran each excursion even if only one person wanted to go, and returning my husband's camera which he left in the van before our flight left Punta Arenas was a huge bonus."MT, Henley on Thames
"Yet another hotel where we thought 'What have we done to deserve being in such a fabulous place?' Amazing staff, great food, brilliant location, accommodation like we never knew existed - can we move in please?"CC, Carnforth
"We all loved it - staff were terrific."RW, Cobham
10/10 for the Camp. We had our doubts on this one but it was fantastic, the accommodation standard and restaurant excellent.FT, Mansfield
Remarkable place. Guides were fantastic. Food was good but not exceptional. The Yurts were warm, comfortable and with amazing lake views. It would be helpful to know that the all-inclusive tariff also includes drinks. More info on activity options prior to arrival would be helpful.AM,Cheltenham
Can't rate this highly enough. Very luxurious. They tell us they are going to devise more walks in the Park next year, and install a swimming pool, which will make it all even better!!AS, Frome
Amazing food, yurt, range of trips offered - this was great all round. We loved the 'team' ethos and friendliness of all the staff. Highly recommended.KD, Dartford
>Amazing place. Great common facilities, fantastic comfortable yurt, wonderful views and sense of calm. Staff were lovely, guides enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We had fantastic weather which made it even more special. Comfort food rather than fine dining, just right after the walks. Excellent bar and service from the bar.CB, Winchester
"Great place, unforgettable."JL, Richmond
Loved our time there. Yurt was excellent experience and we were very well looked after. Great food and wineJF, Kirkcudbright
Thank you for booking the Patagonia Camp for our stay in that region. The yurts were very comfortable, the food was delicious and the wine (included) was very good. Service was very attentive and the excursions were interesting and well-guided. I would recommend this 'hotel' unreservedly. The experience was helped by 4 days of good weather.PCA, Riding Mill
"Excellent in every way -- food, comfortable yurts, everything extremely high quality, and delivered in very friendly manner. very good guides on all trips which were planned to make the best of the weather reports for the park.

Excellent place to explore Torres del Paine. Great service, wonderful food and hospitality and the best guides.JS, Sevenoaks
All absolutely wonderful - staff, yurt, treks, restaurant....JT, Lyndhurst
Absolutely fabulous - we loved it. Small with only 40 or so guests, really individual attention. Yurt with jacuzzi was brilliant and the views across the lake to the Torres was quite unbelievable. Hikes etc very well organised and guides were really good. Food excellent too and very nicely presented. Lunches were a surprise with tables and clothes, soup and sandwiches or salads. We would definitely visit again and stay longer next time.CD, Shepton mallet
The whole holiday was memorable but Patagonia Camp and the walk to the Torres del Paine was the best. Absolutely breath taking. We wished we had stayed one more night here.CB, Tonbridge
beautifully located, stunning views from the lovely yurts. Staff very friendly and the range of excursions were excellent. Food also very, very good. One hiccup for us was our heating and hot water were not working and it took over a day to sort (a very chilly night)EB, Maidstone
Superb reallyHM, Bristol
