What is Ecocamp?
In a short sentence, a success story on many levels. Ecocamp has succeeded in creating a environmentally-responsible vacation destination in the heart of a Chilean national park. And guests are remarkably happy to come and stay.
What is attractive to Domerama is how Ecocamp has managed to build their own “hotel” mostly by themselves using geodesic domes as their primary design for all structures. In the climate of the region, it may not seem to be a prized vacation destination, but Ecocamp delivers on all levels.
About the founders and the team
EcoCamp is owned and operated by Chilean in-bound tour operator Cascada Expediciones, specializing in adventure trips of the highest quality. Cascada was founded in 1991 by university friends Yerko Ivelic and Javier Lopez and environmental steward Nani Astorga.
The team at EcoCamp is an energetic mix of guides, cooks, assistants, maintenance staff, drivers, housekeepers and administrators, mainly from the neighbouring town of Puerto Natales (180km) or Punta Arenas (330km). Their hardworking and positive attitude ensures service levels for both guests and the environment are of the highest quality.
