On August 27th Time Magazine released their first ever World’s Greatest Places list – and EcoCamp Patagonia was on it! EcoCamp was recognized for their commitment to sustainability and innovation, placing alongside 99 other leisure businesses from cruise ships to restaurants and hotels. It was the only hotel from Chile selected. More than 1,000 businesses from all six continents and 48 countries were considered, recommended by editors and experts from around the world.
“We are incredibly honored to have been recognized by Time,” Representative Helen Cordery says, “and we take this as proof that the rest of the world is as committed to sustainability as we are. Hopefully, this movement will only grow worldwide.”

It is completely sustainable, utilizing solar and hydro energy to power the dome complex, and they promote nature immersion through digital detoxification.
