Thinking about backpacking through Patagonia? Nah, okay. Even if it wasn’t on your bucket list of places to visit, this dope eco-camp, that makes camping look glamorous just may change your mind.
Scene set: A brilliant night, cloudless, with stars, and constellations gleaming above. Awe-inspiring snow capped granite mountains, lush greenery, and pristine waterways surround you. Nestled in this unearthly wilderness is EcoCamp Patagonia, an award-winning sustainable lodge in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park. Here, you can appreciate nature up close and personal while still basking in luxurious amenities like polar fleece sheets, woolen blankets, feather quilts, gourmet cuisine, yoga instruction — and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The suits are individual octagonal domes, ranging from one bedroom, to two-floor loft style domes. The dopest part about the lodge is when you book your stay, your package includes tours, food, and other amenities for your maximum nature enjoyment.
Staying at the EcoCamp, you’ll come across travelers with varying levels of hiking aptitude. Even if you’re a novice, the lodge will set up hikes ranging from easy to strenuous, so that you may fully enjoy Chile’s bucolic scenery.
Sounds amazing right? Let me know if you go!
