At the tip of the South American continent, EcoCamp Patagonia is situated in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia, with a unique view of the majestic Torres. Created in 2000, it is the first fully sustainable accommodation south of the Amazon and the first of its kind in the Patagonian wilderness. EcoCamp is a tribute to the ancient group of nomadic inhabitants in Patagonia called Kaweskar. The essence of their dome homes has been kept by maintaining a simple nomadic design in the midst of natural surroundings. The 25 bedroom domes are immersed in the surrounding vegetation and blends harmoniously into the park environment. From your friendly eco dome you can look out at the spectacular view of the towering granite spires in the morning and fall asleep gazing up at the stars of the southern hemisphere each night.
EcoCamp’s commitment to environmental sustainability has been internationally recognized and its reputation as an innovator of green technology confirmed. They have created and designed domes, which are 100% sustainable that will leave no trace when moved. They also operate with a high level of local involvement. 90% of their staff is from the neighborhood. All of their food is locally sourced and bought from nearby farm suppliers. They hire horses from local farmers and buy most of their handicrafts and decoration from local artisanal markets. EcoCamp Patagonia is also supporting Refugio Animal Cascada, a nature sanctuary in Cajon del Maipo mountain valley close to Santiago. The refuge provides a rehabilitation center for native animals and contributes to environmental education in the local community.
