Patagonia Camp is the first luxury camp in South America. It is an original and distinctive concept where each detail has been carefully thought of so that guests may thoroughly enjoy the magnificent and wild nature of mythical Patagonia, combining comfort, convenience, and the warm hospitality that Chileans are known for. Patagonia Camp invites you to live an experience unlike any other.

Located on the shore of Lake Toro close to Torres del Paine, in a region of extraordinary beauty. The camp is surrounded by spectacular landscapes, ancient forests, lakes and turquoise-colored rivers, Patagonia Camp is the ideal place to experience the rugged and wild Patagonian region by combining nature adventure with comfort and luxury.

Total Immersion in Nature
Patagonia Camp was designed so that our guests may totally immerse themselves in the extraordinary natural landscapes of Patagonia, without foregoing luxury and comfort.
Our yurts are designed so that our guests may listen to the sound of the wind or rain while staying warm and cozy inside, and they are situated so that when our guests step outside they are greeted by one of the most stunning landscapes in the world as well as a thick beech forest where we can observe some of the many species of birds that live with us in this region.

The Camp
The complex is made up of 18 yurts, all of which have a view of Lake Toro and the Paine Massif. There is one main building that serves as the restaurant, bar and lounge. All are connected by elevated walkways.

Patagonia Camp has been designed and built to have minimum impact on the environment and to be visually and structurally harmonious with the landscape of the area. The entire complex is built on wooden stilts and platforms, including the yurts, communal areas, and walkways that connect the complex, so that the plants, bushes and trees that have grown in the area for hundreds of years are protected, and the dozens of species of birds who watch with curiosity the arrival of guests.

Patagonia Camp Experiences
Food and Wine
Guests will be delighted with the cuisine at Patagonia Camp. The chef combines regional products such as lamb and southern hake with fresh, locally produced fruits and vegetables to provide guests with delicious and healthy meals. You won't want to miss dining in the “quincho,” where you can take part in a famous Patagonia barbecue of slow-roasted Magallanic lamb. The camp offers a selection of the finest Chilean wines.

Bar and Lounge
Relax in the bar and enjoy a well-made pisco sour or a glass of fine Chilean wine while gazing out at the incomparable view of Lake Toro and the Paine Massif. The bar and lounge provides guests with an ideal place to meet and share tales of their daily adventures.

Yurt Accommodations

Each yurt has a private bathroom, complete with 24-hour light and hot water. From your private terrace soak in the views of the Lake and Paine Massif. Each private yurt is fully equipped with a king or two single beds, telephone with DDI, and heating. Each is finely decorated with Patagonia-style woven fabrics and handcrafted furniture by local artisans using local woods.

Sustainability at Patagonia Camp
Patagonia Camp believes that guests should be able to enjoy rivers, lakes and ponds that are clean and crystalline. For this reason, the camp has installed two waste treatment plants that release water that is 100% pure and does not contain any residues. One treatment plants is for “gray” water from laundry and kitchen, which eliminates any trace detergents. They ensure that the water used returns to nature absolutely free of any kind of organic or toxic material.

Patagonia Camp utilizes clean energy that does not produce contaminants so that they emit the least amount possible of CO2 into the atmosphere. To accomplish this, they have put a special emphasis on optimizing energy resources by using low-consumption electrical appliances, which in turn allows the use of a low-consumption electric generator that releases very minor levels of CO2.
