Explore South America's Leading Adventure Destination with Patagonia Camp
NEW YORK - Dec. 16, 2019 - PRLog -- In April the World Travel Awards bestowed Chile with the title of South America's Leading Adventure Destination for 2019. It's not difficult to see why. From the towering Andes, to the lakes, rivers, deserts, and coastline, there are endless outdoor playgrounds for all levels. There is no better place to experience the best of Chile's adventure than in Patagonia, and no better place in Patagonia to do it than Patagonia Camp.
Long before humans, there were glaciers in Southern Patagonia, and these glaciers have defined the stark, rugged, wild beauty that exists there today. Picture monolith shards jutting up from barren frontiers, sweeping seascapes, and a frontier so compelling it has drawn adventurers for centuries. Today it is a veritable paradise for travelers to write their own adventures, whether it's trekking in the mountains, snapping breathtaking photography of wildlife, or staring up at the endless velvety blanket of stars.
Patagonia Camp, a unique nature experience and hushed hideaway is nestled 20 minutes from the world-famous Torres del Paine National Park, and an hour from Puerto Natales, making it the perfect home base from which to set off into the unparalleled adventure that surrounds. The journey into new lands begins with the arrival experience. Patagonia Camp is a collection of 20 luxurious yurts on the shores of Lago del Toro, one of the largest and most beautiful lakes in Chilean Patagonia. Visitors will fly into the remote cities of either Punta Arenas or Puerto Natales in Chile, or El Calafate in Argentina, to begin their adventure in the wild, 34,000-hectare reserve that is Torres del Paine.
Patagonia Camp is located in Chile's Magallanes region, which is the southernmost and least populated. The remoteness of the location, combined with limited accommodations, means that only an average of 150,000 tourists come to the mark each year. Puerto Natales, which has fewer than 19,000 inhabitants, inherently sets the tone for one of the more exclusive and adventurous experiences in the world.
The camp has taken the traditional Mongolian yurt style and transformed them to the landscape of Patagonia, adding comforts of a conventional hotel room like central heating, ensuite bathrooms, and stylish decor. The yurts are connected via wooden walkways that weave through native Patagonian Coigue, Lenga, and Notros forests that surround the pristine camp.
From these exclusive and posh accommodations, visitors have the rest of Patagonia as their paradise. From incredible sights, a varied climate, and unique flora and fauna, the excursions provided at Patagonia Camp, and the experienced guides who lead them, are equipped to help visitors chart their own adventure.
Experience hikers will relish the off-the-beaten path treks in the park, like the Glacier Grey Viewpoint Trek that covers 13.5 miles and follows the famous W circuit. Or set off into the mesmerizingly Los Azules Viewpoint for views of the blue shades of the Porteño Lake, Toro Lake and Bonita and Maravilla Lagoons.
On the way to these spectacular destinations, be sure to take note of the impressive flora and fauna. Scan the skies for condors, or keep a lookout for the Huemul deer. These are the national animals of Chile and to see them in their natural environment is an adventure all on its own.
The adventure opportunities around the world are truly endless and ever-changing, so why not make 2020 the year to see one of the best? A stay at Patagonia Camp can take an already epic adventure and transform it into the memory of a lifetime.
