Ecocamp Wildlife Safari


Departs Daily 

A stay at the Cascada EcoCamp, unique in Patagonia, is comfortable, environmentally friendly, and a truly amazing experience. Cascada EcoCamp offers a perfect compromise between hotel accommodation and camping, with large dome-shaped tents, with wooden floors, allowing plenty of space for sleeping comfortably.  A separate tent contains the kitchen/living/dining areas, while a separate building houses the communal bathrooms and composting toilets. The Patagonia Safari offers 4 night full-board stays based on a weekly excursion itinerary. The program starts and finishes in Punta Arenas or El Calafate.

Day 1 

From Punta Arenas embark on a panoramic ride to Torres del Paine National Park. Enjoy the impressive Cueva de Milodón – a gigantic cave that once sheltered a prehistoric sloth – before arriving at Cascada EcoCamp this afternoon.

Overnight: Cascada Ecocamp (B/L/D)

Day 2 

A drive through the park showcases spellbinding views of mountain-lined Lake Norkenskjold and Lake Pehoe. Upon arriving to Paso La Feria, enjoy a walk towards equally stunning Lake Sarmiento. The trail features views of the Paine massif with opportunities to spot of condors, guanaco herds and puma tracks.

Today explore the western side of the park, with stops at secluded lagoons for short walks and bird watching: Chilean Flamingos at Laguna Amarga; diverse bird life at Laguna Los Juncos; and a swan colony at Laguna Cisnes. Reaching
Lake Pehoe, visit the furious Salto Grande falls and walk along the gentle Nordenskjold trail (1.5 hrs return) which offers awesome views of the Cuernos del Paine horn-like peaks (2,670 m/8,700 ft). The day ends with a short nature hike along beautiful Lake Toro before returning back to camp.
