Glamping is a great option to be in touch with the environment, watch the stairs, listen the wind, feel the weather... It´s an amazing experience. In Argentina and Chile, we have some great options to enjoy glamping, which is camping with the comfort you can find in a hotel for example. Some of them, with luxury services. The domes, or sometimes yurts, are fully equipped, to offer the best possible experience. But first, let´s talk about Glamping. What means Glamping?
What is glamping?
Well, basically glamping is a form of camping involving accommodation and facilities more luxurious than those associated with traditional camping. So, glamping is likely to satisfy any city slicker seeking a little refuge in nature—without foregoing any of life's luxuries. And we have many options and different levels and different categories of glamping.

Glamping in Patagonia: Patagonia Camp
Again, it´s one of my favorites. Patagonia Camp is the perfect gate to enjoy Torres del Paine National Park. From the very beginning, Patagonia Camp has been developed based on sustainable principles, our belief in helping protect our planet and our utmost care and commitment for Patagonia. Patagonia Camp was built using the most eco-friendly methods, all while being the most respectful that we can be for our native environment.
Patagonia Camp was created so that each of our guests can feel and enjoy the wonderful nature of Patagonia from the comfort of their own private room. Our yurts provide guests a unique experience to be able to have intimate contact with nature – the magical sounds of the wind blowing, rain falling and being able to see the stars all from the central dome of your private yurt. Our concept allows our guests to experience one of the world’s most beautiful landscapes right from your windows alongside being surrounded by an incredible and aromatic native forest where our walkways and viewing platforms are located.
Patagonia Camp is located in Torres del Paine, a 34,000 hectare private reserve that is home to native Coigüe evergreen forests, ancient “Nothofagus” plants like “Lenga” and “Notros” that bloom in Spring. Our site is located on the shores of Lake Toro, the largest lake in the Magallanes region of Chile with incredible views of the Macizo del Paine. The Camp is located at Kilometer 74 on the Milodon-Porteño route (Y-290) which is just 15 kilometers from the main entrance of the Torres del Paine National Park, one of most beautiful, and well-known parks on the planet.
