We recently wrote an article on Adventure Junky, a new application that promotes sustainable travel and adventures through an interactive game. I couldn’t help but wonder how many points one would get for a vacation at EcoCamp Patagonia. What a beautiful setting for such a cool idea.
The camp is situated close to Torres del Paine National Park in Patagonia which lies in the southern region of South America. It is shared by Argentina and Chile. The EcoCamp offers daily activities such as cycling, hikes and nature walks as well as a Wildlife Safari. Guests get to stay in one of these cool looking Geo Domes which feature sustainable accommodations including green technology. Each has a panoramic view of the majestic Torres del Paine.
A typical day might include a guided safari through the wild Patagonian plains, past glacial lakes, snow capped mountains, rapid waterfalls and wildlife. Then, you would head back to camp, where you meet up with the other guests for dinner. The guest domes come in several different levels of amenities. the standard dome comes equipped with a bed and shared bathrooms. The Suite and Superior domes are the most popular and have heating, private bathrooms and incredible views.
The camp actually has reviews on sites such as Trip Advisor and as you can imagine the consensus is outstanding. The camp gets high ratings on service, adventure, and even the food. There are several different adventure and tour packages to choose from such as the 7-day Wt Trek and 9-day Circuit, which are rated between moderate and demanding. They also offer horse back riding, kayaking (on a glacier!) and boat cruises. Some adventures take you far enough that guests stay in other accommodations, but EcoCamp is always the home base. All meals and beverages are included and packages range from $400 to $5,000 and last 5-9 days. You can check it out here and if you have gone on an adventure like this, we would love to hear about it.
