EcoCamp Patagonia Guest Comments
Richard Goslan, UK (Superior Dome EcoCamp)
Back in Santiago after an incredible trip to Patagonia. Just wanted to say many thanks for your help in arranging everything for our stay at the Eco camp, including the rearrangement of our dates.
Our stay was absolutely fantastic, the feeling of arriving at our dome after the long walk in the snow from the refugio at Paine Grande was unbeatable. The dome was amazing, the food and wine were outstanding, and we were very well looked after by Victor and Lorredanna.
Many thanks to all and I hope to return some day!
Chris Ehresman, USA (Short W Trek)
Cascada Expediciones did a fantastic job, everything about the trip was amazing. The only disappointment was when we got to Gray Glacier, the motor on the boat wasn't working properly, resulting in a missed opportunity to drive close to the glacier - we were only able to view it from the boat loading point.
Other than that, everything else was perfect. The guides (Manuel and "Camion" - Juan Louis) were great; they were knowledgeable, friendly, and professional and I would highly recommend both to any group. And Eco-camp was fun and unique, truly an experience my wife and I will never forget.
In regards to the selling process, everything went very smooth and the representative (Fernanda) was great at getting back to me when I had questions (I never had to wait more than a day for a response).
Thank you for your help and I look forward to working with Cascada in the future! Best regards,

We absolutely LOVED our time at Eco Camp. The facilities were excellent (although I do think they need to improve the temperature. It was absolutely scorching in the domes during the day, which was very uncomfortable). The food was also fabulous. But most importantly, the staff was great. They were all incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Pato, especially, went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable during my stay since I was sick for a few days.
I would highly recommend this trip to any of my friends and family.
Thank your for your Feedback, Jillian:
For the 2011/12 season we already improved the ventilation of our Suit Domes and we installed ceiling fans in our Community Domes.

Alison & Bob Holland, USA (Patagonia United Tour)
The trip planned by Cascada was absolutely fantastic. Everything you folks planned for us was beyond our expectations. Ecocamp was amazing. We loved the staff and the area. I can´t really complain about anything. Everyone was wonderful to us. All of the guides throughout our trip were friendly, helpful and intelligent. Everyone showed up as planned. If you wish more specific feedback, please let me know. I can simply say that it was a trip of a lifetime and Cascada travel was the best. I will recommend your company to everyone I know. Thanks to all of you who made this trip special for us.
Thaddeus Seremak, USA (Short W Trek)
The whole experience was great starting with Isidora, the pick-up at the
airport, the drive to the park, our guides (Roberto and Carola), out fellow
trekkers, the accommodations, the meals and most of all Patagonia and the
Torres Del Paine W Trek. Special thanks to Isidora, Roberto, and Carola for
making the trip something to remember for a lifetime.
Ravi Shankar, USA (5 day Torres del Paine short W Trek)
I had a great time on the 5-day trek at Torres Del Paine! The guides were excellent, the weather was perfect... I really enjoyed the EcoCamp and the food and drink.
The selling process was fairly easy as well.
Very satisfied with the whole experience!
Jo Boatright, USA (5 Tage Torres del Paine W Trek + 7 Tage Fitz Roy Trek)
Dieser Trip war einer der besten Erfahrungen, die ich je gemacht habe. Keith und ich haben die Treks geliebt, vor allem den Teil in Torres del Paine (das mag auch am Wetter gelegen haben, über das ja niemand die Kontrolle hat ). Ich war, wie man sagt, komplett "hin und weg" vom Ecocamp. Ich habe viele Informationen gesammelt und ich hoffe wenigstens unsere Forstverwaltung und andere Outdoor-Guppen darüber zu informieren, was ihr macht. Wie wir in der Musikwelt sagen -- BRAVO!
Bob Schwartz, USA (7 Tage Torres del Paine Trek + 7 Tage Fitz Roy Trek)
Wir hatten einen wundervollen Trip!! Die Guides Diego (Argentinien), Rodrigo und Roberto waren alle ausgezeichnet, sehr gut informiert bezüglich Geografie, Tier- und Pflanzenwelt und waren immer sehr freundlich. Wir konnten sie immer alles fragen. Außerdem waren sie immer aufmerksam und haben auf all unsere Bedürfnisse reagiert. Und das Essen war großartig (außer im ersten Restaurant, in dem wir auf dem Weg von Punta Arenas gehalten haben) und wunderbar serviert, vor allem im Ecocamp war es sehr genussreich.
Martin Van den Oever, THE NETHERLANDS (7 day Torres del Paine Trek)
Our Torres-del-Paine trip was absolutely unforgettable.We were actually very lucky with the weather and had some sunny and relatively warm days. I must say, that it was quiete heavy but we managed well. We made good pictures. The organisation was perfect and we had lots of fun with Maurizio and Roberto 1 and 2. Also the Eco-camp we found very interesting; incredible that the tents can resist 240 km / hour winds.I will try to put a representative photo on the mail one of these days. Thank you again for your commitment and interest, also on behalve of my travel mate Edwin
Many regards MARTIN VANDENOEVER, Wassenaar , The Netherlands
Mike and Lindsay Macrae, AUSTRALIA (7 day Torres del Paine Trek)
Hi, We have just returned from Chile and the 7 day Torres trek. We both loved it - Maurizio was fantastic as our guide - the weather was unbelievable (sunny skies and 17 degrees celcius). The eco camp was incredible - well organised and so comfortable. Would it be possible to send us your brochure as we are keen to visit South America again and would like to do other treks that you might offer. Many thanks Mike and Lindsay Macrae
