Patagonia AWLS Itinerary

The Eco Camp in Torres Del Paine

Welcome to Patagonia’s EcoCamp! The World’s 1st Geodesic Dome Hotel.

This is our home for 3 nights. Many tours in Patagonia don’t get the unique opportunity to stay right in the center of Torres Del Paine National Park. We get to wake up to morning yoga with a view of sunrise over the snow covered peaks, spend the day exploring the spectacular Torres park with several different adventure opportunities and end the evening with a glass of wine and delicious food, in the company of new friends. We look forward to sharing this incredible place with you!
