Patagonia Camp is located in Torres del Paine on a 34,000-hectare private reserve on the shores of Lago Toro, the largest lake in the Magallanes region of Chile, with incredible views of the Macizo del Paine. The Camp is just 15 kilometers from the main entrance of the Torres del Paine National Park—one of most beautiful parks on the planet.
Patagonia Camp is comprised of a series of 20 spectacular yurts complete with ensuites, private terrace and unequaled views. Originating from Mongolian nomads, the yurts are designed to allow our guests to enjoy the magical sound of all of Patagonia’s elements, be it watching the night skies, listening to the wind and rain, or listening to birds singing in the surrounding forest, all with one of the most impressive views on the planet.
Our day’s will be spent enjoying the seemingly infinite activity options such as hiking, kayaking, SUP-ing, shore fishing and wildlife viewing on custom-tailored day trips for a variety of abilities and interests. In typical ROAM style, everything on your trip is included from the minute you land in Puerto Natales. There are four styles of deluxe Yurts, chef-prepared meals, activities and house drinks. There’s also guided fly fishing or horseback riding excursions available at additional cost.
There are various ways to get to Patagonia Camp, primarily from the cities of Punta Arenas and Puerto Natales in Chile, or from El Calafate in Argentina. We offer transfers from Punta Arenas, Puerto Natales and Cerro Castillo on the Argentine border.

What to Expect on the Patagonia Camp Adventure
Day One: Arrival to Patagonia Camp
Today you will be transferred to the Camp from either Puerto Natales or Punta Arenas. Transfers can be organized from El Calafate at additional expense. Upon arrival, we will get you checked into your yurt and begin an orientation as to what activities are available for the balance of the day. Tonight we will meet for cocktails in the lounge and then join the group for dinner
Days Two – Six
Pingo to Grey Beach (3.5hours, 5.3miles)
The perfect choice for those who enjoy the tranquility and silence of the forest. After driving 1 hour to the west of the park, we enter the riverbank of Pingo River, where we will walk through the plain and Magellan forest with a privileged view of the meanders of the same river and the west face of Paine Grande Mount. As the walk continues, we cross pasture areas used by the horses that the rangers traditionally ride in the old way, and then progressively continue penetrating a dense and lively forest of lengas and coihues, sheltering abundant birdlife, as well as different types of flowers and vegetation. The first section culminates in a chorrillo frequented by salmon in season, witnesses of a complex and changing life. This temple of vegetation invites you to disconnect and enjoy the peace and refuge provided by the shade of the foliage. Definitely a hit for forest lovers, being a perfect complement between the dense vegetation that characterizes Southern Patagonia and wonderful views of the west side of the park.
Trek to Grey Lake (5 hours, 7.4 miles)
The trail to the Grey Lookout is on the western side of the “W” circuit and it follows the slopes of Mount Paine Grande after we have crossed Lake Pehoe from the Pudeto Sector on a boat trip of around 30 minutes. We will walk through a basin of sedimentary rock along a relatively flat trail until we reach the western slope of Paine Grande.
The path crosses gently undulating ravines which will put the adventurer to the test physically until we reach the Grey Glacier Lookout which gives an incredible panoramic view of Lake Grey and its imposing glacier which can be seen in the distance. The lookout gives us a taste of how wild and prevailing are the forces of nature in Southern Patagonia. From here it is possible to see the icebergs floating on the lake and to feel the characteristic cold Patagonian winds.
The French Valley (7 hours, 11.8 miles)
The French Valley is one of the three principal attractions of the “W” circuit and it is one of the most striking trails in the National Park. It is not to be missed for those who enjoy hiking and are in good physical shape. The experience begins at the Pudeto Dock where we will take the catamaran that crosses the icy cold turquoise waters of Lake Pehoe to the slopes of Cerro Paine Grande. Here we will start a marvelous hike full of scenic contrasts on our way to the Italian Camp; from here we continue on upwards over an ancient glacial moraine and going through a wooded valley to reach the French Lookout. Open your senses and discover the sensation of being in this amazing amphitheatre in Torres del Paine surrounded by glaciers and impressive walls of granite. There is an optional ferry ride that is weather dependent.
Lake Toro Lookout 2 hours, 1.86 miles
This walk begins directly from the Camp. It is an old wide trail that was formerly used by carts and it connects the small rocky peninsulas of the southern bank of Lake Toro with the Alevines Bay. As the trail heads southeast we enter a forest of Lengas and Notros. We will walk over gently sloping hills with views of Lake Toro and its islands to the south as well as a vast panorama of mountain chains and native forests full of birds and flowers in summer. On a clear day the Toro Sierra and the Paine Massif can be seen and you will no doubt experience the classic winds coming off the Southern Patagonian Ice Field.
There is a selection of lookout points along the route starting after about 20 minutes of walking. Your final destination will be totally up to how far you wish to walk. The return to the Camp is along the same route but this time with views of Mount Tenerife and the Yurts of Patagonia Camp. This walk is the perfect setting for a day of contemplation with little physical demands, far from the regular tourist routes and best of all it requires no transport other than your own feet.
The Base of the Towers
This is one of the most iconic routes in Torres del Paine National Park forming an essential segment of the “W” circuit. This demanding excursion deserves all of its famed reputation, for the level of difficulty as well as for the unforgettable view that it offers – if the weather permits. The trail is located in the eastern part of the National Park in the Ascencio Valley, a natural gateway, where the intense and progressive trek begins for a hike that is full of great lookout points to view the rivers, streams and sides of the mountains.
We will climb through forests of Lenga beech and Andean shrub-land before tackling the glacial moraine composed of blocks of granite that have been exposed to the harshness of the Patagonian climate. Upon reaching the Towers Lookout we will find ourselves in one of the most famous postcards from this part of the world, in an amphitheatre of rocky peaks and glaciers.
Kayak Puntilla (3 hours, 1.5 miles)
This kayak trip is one of the exclusive treasures offered at Patagonia Camp. Our team of guides will provide an informative talk on the technical basics of paddling and safety instructions. After getting fully kitted out with all the necessary equipment we will go to the banks of Lake Toro, the largest lake in the region with pure waters of tones that vary from deep blues to intense turquoises. We will kayak around the well protected bays and islands accompanied by extraordinary views of the Patagonian landscape. This activity is truly not to be missed!
Today, after another amazing breakfast, will be your last day at Patagonia Camp. Depending on your travel schedule, there may be time for a half or full day excursion before transfers towards the airport or other adventures ROAM may have planned for you!
The yurts have been adapted for the Patagonian landscape and have central heating, ensuite bathrooms and a comfortable interior décor with handmade furniture and textiles. All of the yurts have a circular dome in the center of the tent, which was originally used by Mongolian nomads as a chimney, where you can enjoy sleeping under the stars of Patagonia all from the comfort and warmth of your yurt.
The dining room is a warm and inviting space that features large windows that overlook the majestic Macizo de Paine. You can taste some of Patagonia’s finest ingredients while enjoying the view, accompanied by outstanding service from friendly and attentive staff. At Patagonia Camp we take food and drink seriously and have access to some of the region’s freshest and most delicious offerings. You can find salmon, southern hake, king crab and lamb along with fresh vegetables from our local gardens.
After a rewarding day of experiencing the beauty of Patagonia first hand, relax at the bar and enjoy a classic Pisco Sour, mixed with native fruits like calafate or rhubarb or enjoy a glass of exquisite organic wine then move on to the lounge where you can meet, greet and share your experiences with other guests.
