Accommodation: Ecocamp Patagonia  (Nights 1,4,5,6)
Ecocamp Patagonia is located in the heart of Torres del Paine National Park in Chile, with a unique view of the majestic granite towers. The region’s first fully sustainable accommodation south of the Amazon and the first of its kind in the Patagonian wilderness, EcoCamp offers upscale camping in geodesic domes inspired by the region’s ancient nomadic inhabitants

EcoCamp Standard domes were the world's first geodesic dome hotel room.  They are resistant to the strongest Patagonian winds, rains, and snow and come equipped with two single beds (doubles on request), very cozy fleece blankets, feather quilts.  There are round windows in the ceiling to look up at the stars.  Standard domes have large shared ladies and gents bathrooms.

Refugios (Nights 2-3)
These are typical mountain huts, open to the public visiting Torres del Paine.  They have rooms for 4-6 people.  The beds are single bunks and are provided with a sleeping bag and a polar fleece liner (you don't need to bring a sleeping bag!).  The bathrooms are also shared and they have hot water.  The refugios are heated and have a very comfortable dining area where plentiful meals are served.  If refugios are unavailable, alternative accommodation will be provided in tents with prior notice
