It is difficult to define a place like EcoCamp Patagonia because it breaks the mold in more ways than one. For this reason, we label ourselves an ¨alternative hotel¨, nestled beneath the famous Torres del Paine towers like something out of a fairy tale. It isn't always so easy to be in such a remote location nor to sell ourselves for what we really are: something different.  We do believe that we are doing something special down here, and we invite you to bite the bullet and give us a visit - we promise you won't regret it. Here is the latest EcoCamp news!

What We’ve Been Doing at EcoCamp

  • Hosting filmmaker Rene Araneda and his team at EcoCamp where they are currently filming a Netflix documentary about Patagonia’s unique pumas. On October 3rd, we went with Rene to the Natales Children's Home (Hogar de Niños de Natales) to share some footage of the pumas and to discuss ways kids can get involved with conservation.

  • Planting new lenga trees as part of our reforestation program with AMA Torres del Paine (a local non-profit). Throughout September and October, we held several planting occasions, inviting children from XX to join in the fun at EcoCamp!
