patagonia camp details
The first luxury tented camp in South America. Accommodation is in ample yurts – circular, wood lattice framed ‘tents’ and the entire complex is built on stilts.
Patagonia Camp is located on the shore of the massive Lake Torro, with stunning views of the stunning and dramatic Paine Massif, just 20 minutes from the admin centre of Torres del Paine National Park – one of the most spectacular National Parks in the world.
Accommodation & Facilities
The 18 yurts have a wooden beam structure, and despite having material walls, have strong wooden doors. Each yurt is heated with an en-suite bathroom and private terrace looking out to the Lake and the Paine Massif, walls are adorned with fabrics and local handcrafted furniture. Rooms either have a king or two twin beds, depending on your wishes and each is non-smoking, as are the communal areas.
As with the yurts, all of the communal areas are stilted, so the entire complex is raised on wooden walkways. There is a social bar and lounge area where guests can enjoy fine Chilean wines and discuss the day’s activities and experiences, this area is open to guests only.
The restaurant, on site, serves typical Patagonian cuisine, including the famous slow roast lamb served in the “quincho” as a barbeque. Food is healthy and delicious, served with only the finest Chilean wines.
There are bikes and fishing rods for use at the camp and they offer 3 excursions per day so guests can experience this amazing area to its fullest. Locations for excursions include; Mirador Condo, Lan Penisula, Playa Grey, Mirador Cuernos and Mirador El Estribo, as well as Laguna Azul, Base Torres and Laguna Verde.
Children are welcome, however due to the rugged landscape and the nature of the camp with its elevated accommodation and walkways it is not recommended for young children.
Designed to have minimal impact on the environment, not just ecologically, but also visually. The entire structure is built on stilts to protect the native flora. The camp has 2 waste treatment plants, one of which is for ‘gray’ water; all water released is completely pure. Low consumption electrical appliances are used in the plight for using clean energy.
