EcoCamp Patagonia: Torres del Paine National Park, 3 nights
Type: Lodge

Description: This unique lodge is comprised of geodesic domes and takes its inspiration from dwellings once used by the ancient nomadic peoples of Patagonia. Every aspect of the camp's design was carefully planned to provide attractive and comfortable facilities with minimal impact to the local environment. Meals are served in the dining room, in a community dome, and the menu is a blend of Chilean and international cuisines prepared with locally-sourced ingredients. Guests have priviledged views of Torres del Paine National Park's breathtaking scenery, including the towering granite towers, from the comfort of their own domes or while lounging on the camp's terrace. The EcoCamp takes pride in being the first ISO14001 and ISO 9001 certified hotel in Patagonia. Energy for the camp is generated by solar panels and a micro-hydro turbine (power is 220 V AC). The domes are made of renewable materials and a sophysticated recycling system handles lodge waste.

Contact info:
Torres del Paine National Park, Chile
phone: +800-901-6987
web: www.ecocamp.travel

Room amenities: Each Suite Dome (300ft² area) has comfortable bedding, a low-emission stove, a fully-equipped private bathroom with a state of the art composting toilet and a propane heater. Electricity is limited inside the domes, so hairdryers are not permitted (laptops and cameras are ok to charge). Ceiling windows are perfect for star gazing from the comfort of your cozy bed. An enclosed verandah provides a nice place to read or dry wet clothes inside your dome, while an outdoor terrace offers an inviting place to enjoy a glass of wine and chat after a full day of activities. Smoking is only allowed outdoors.

Facility amenities: Dining room, bar, library, shop, a barbecue platform, and a terrace with lounge chairs. Raised walkways connect the domes.

Smoking policies vary by facility. During all group events and activities, smoking is prohibited.
