From the 14th to the 18th September, EcoCamp had a special visit from the team of “Wild Hotels / Houses” (“Vilde Huse”), an original Danish TV show (of DR Kultur) that is broadcasted in Denmark and Scandinavian countries such as Norway, Sweden and Finland. As its name suggests, Wild Hotels features hotels which are located…in the wilderness.
Camila (TV show planner), Johnny (camera operator) and Mads (host) came from Copenhagen with a deep interest in finding out more about the sustainable concept behind EcoCamp and the beauty of its surroundings. The TV show will be released in December and, having witnessed the work they have done during their 4-day stay, we are sure the result will be outstanding!
Always buzzing with a good mood and great sense of humour, Camila, Johnny and Mads managed to capture the best of EcoCamp! After days of experiencing the tough winds and rain of Patagonia, we were all glad to enjoy the sunshine while walking through the land of guanacos. And, even though we did not see a puma, get ready for some surprises!
Opportunely, their stay coincided with the “Fiestas Patrias”, a national day of celebration in Chile. For this occasion, EcoCamp organized a traditional “asado” (barbecue) in one of the most beautiful places of Torres del Paine National Park: Laguna Azul. Much more than taking part in scenic trekking adventures and relaxing yoga sessions, they shared what makes Ecocamp so unique: happiness!
For their last night at EcoCamp, we had a small party at the EcoBar, enjoying a special concert – organized by members of staff – and Mate, a traditional hot drink of Patagonia. We took advantage of this moment to ask them what they best enjoyed at EcoCamp. Here is what they replied:
Camila: “I really like the fact that in the evening, the guests get together, because there’s no WiFi and no internet connection, so you get to talk to each other, and you learn a lot about each other.”
Johnny: “I’ve visited many hotels, and I think you’ve got the best tourist profile. You know what the guests want, here we can enjoy great long tours and get together at night, that’s great!”
Mads: “All the staff have been wonderful, I have so many new friends, and I learnt how to make a fire. Oh, and…at some point, I realized I was not desperately addicted to my mobile and WiFi, and I suddenly realized that I could stay here forever!”
