The 2016-17 season is over.
Yet for all those who traveled to EcoCamp – or worked with us – during these 8 months, this season was unlike any other season. EcoCamp was born 15 years ago, when Javier Lopez, Yerko Ivelic and Nani Astorga founded the first geodesic hotel in the world in the wilds of Torres del Paine National Park. During the past 15 years EcoCamp has become one of the most inspiring hotels in the world, while creating lifelasting memories for guests from around the world and serving as a model for sustainable tourism worldwide.
At EcoCamp, we always listen to our guests and take their comments into account. TripAdvisor is a powerful tool to constantly improve the quality of our services and to ensure our guests are happy with their experience. And in 2016, for the sixth year running, EcoCamp has been awarded TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence!
Let’s face it: Organizing an overseas trip is a lot like putting together a puzzle. With so many pieces to keep track of, sometimes one or two get kicked under the table. At Cascada, we aim to make your job easier as you communicate with your clients helping to make their journey to Chile the smoothest it can be.
In Chile, things don’t slow down in winter. In a country with such changing climate and landscapes, the tourism industry is always going strong. To tempt travelers this winter, we’ve launched a selection of new excursions bringing together Torres del Paine trekking adventures, traditional skiing mini breaks, and top-level wine tastings in the Central Valley.
While travelers sometimes disregard Low and Shoulder Season, these months offer numerous benefits such as cheaper flights, the National Park’s changing color palette, the pleasure of less crowded trails - and offers on Torres del Paine tours.
Chile is a country whose shape makes a road trip quite ridiculously simple. Long and thin, the Andes a constant companion to the east and the calming knowledge that the west coast is never far away, it is difficult to lose your bearings. Pretty basic - head south and the mountains are on your left… head north and they are on your right. The sun sets by the sea and takes its time to rise over the height of the mighty Andes in the east. Around 800 kilometers (500 miles) south of Santiago lies the adventure destination of Pucon.
"Where's that coming from? That rhythmic pounding, that galloping sound. Starting off from far away, it's getting closer...as if about to pass right in front of us!”
Thankfully, it's not a guy hiding behind a tree clapping coconut shells together! Far better, that galloping signals the arrival of a herd of baguales, or wild Patagonian horses, who roam the steppe after escaping the gauchos’ domesticity.
EcoCamp is proud to have received the prestigious Greenleaders certification. The first Geodesic Hotel in the world is also the first in Chilean Patagonia to be rewarded for our commitment to sustainability with the Platinum level - the highest level of distinction. The Greenleaders program rewards hotels who are committed to environmentally friendly tourism.
