Located in Patagonia in Torres del Paine National Park, EcoCamp’s unique dome structures strive to keep the nomadic spirit of the area’s ancient inhabitants alive. The Kawesqar people built their huts from found materials, and today EcoCamp’s geodesic domes have a similar structure; however, these luxurious huts come with panoramic windows, thick insulation and low-emission wood stoves. The resort gets all its energy from natural and renewable resources, and it has partnered with CarbonFree to offset all its carbon emissions.
