Eco-Camp Torres del Paine, Patagonia, Suite Domes

Experience eco-luxury in the unique Suite Domes at Torres de Paine eco-campSet amidst of the awe-inspiring scenery of Torres del Paine National Park Patagonia Eco-Camp now offers a new luxury option. Alongside their regular dome base camp that is used for their award winning fixed departure hiking tours of Torres del Paine National Park, new spacious luxury domes provide the perfect option for visitors who want to be close to nature, but prefer a bit more privacy and a higher standard of accommodation.

The Suite domes are located in a Lenga (beech) forest next to the existing standard domes, but with enough distance to them as to create a separate and secluded atmosphere offering more refinement and comfort.

The spacious domes are super cosy and comfortable, each fitted with twin or double bed and private bathroom facilities, yet they have only a minimal impact on the environment. They are heated by a modern low-emission wood stove while a solar panel provides the energy.(There will be no electric capacity to plug devices such as hair dryers, electric shavers, etc. Nevertheless, camera batteries can be charged at other powerpoints at the EcoCamp.) Additionally, each dome has its own composting device to process waste. Currently their are only 8 suite domes, limiting numbers of guests to 16 in total at any one time.

Suite domes combine maximum comfort and flexibility - you can stay 2, 3, 4 and 5 nights with a full-board program that is based on a Weekly Excursions Menu (see below). Programs can start and finish any day of the week. Additionally, there is a regular daily transfer going in /out of the Park to connect with Punta Arenas Hotels/Airport/ Australis Cruises Dock, Puerto Natales Hotels/Skorpios Cruises Dock, and Cerro Castillo Argentine border.
