Our roundup of the top news from Patagonia from May:

EcoCamp Closes for the Winter Season

Each year EcoCamp s closed between May and September due to the harshness of the climate. Part of EcoCamp’s eco-policy is to conserve energy and avoid electricity, and during the cold winter months, Patagonia gets just a bit too chilly for the Domes

This does not mean that our treks in the region are also on hold - quite the opposite! Winter in Patagonia is one of the most extraordinary seasons for a trekking adventure, a wintery white paradise that you are most likely to have all to yourself. Have a look at our tours (operated by our sister company, Cascada Expediciones) here.
