Patagonia is a remote region at the most southern point in South America often referred to as "the end of the world". It is the quintessence of pristine, wild, mountain scenery that takes your breath away.
Explore the vast landscape on guided hikes including to the base of the famous "Torres" (granite towers), adventure on glacier and wildlife excursions, drop into soulful yoga sessions with the views of the Andes mountains, enjoy gourmet meals, and share all with new friends before falling asleep under the star-filled sky of your cozy dome
Be ready for an unparalleled, extraordinary and epic yoga and travel experience!
The retreat is hosted at an award-winning ecolodge located in Chile’s Torres del Paine National Park. It is the first environmentally sustainable lodge in the region.
The accommodations are uniquely designed geodesic domes, inspired by the region’s ancient nomadic inhabitants. All domes are immersed in nature, resistant to the Patagonian elements and have ceiling windows to look up at the starry night sky.
Due to the sustainability practices and remoteness of the lodge, their efforts are extensive to maintain and operate under the high standards to which they hold to guests to ensure maximum comfort and enjoyment.
Standard domes come equipped with two single beds or one queen bed, cozy fleece blankets and feather quilts. There are windows in the ceiling for stargazing. Shared bathrooms are large, comfortable and gender divided. No Heating.
Spacious, comfortable and equipped with private bathrooms, Superior Domes are the optimum choice for trekkers wanting that bit more space and comfort at the end of a long day’s walk. Each Superior Dome has comfortable queen size or twin beds, a propane heater, skylight windows and a private bathroom with a sophisticated composting toilet.
Suite domes were designed to provide more comfort in a natural setting with minimal environmental impact, and also maintain the hotel’s familiar and cozy vibe. The domes have a comfortable king bed or two twin beds, a wood stove and a private bathroom with a state-of-the-art composting toilet.
Suite dome lofts are two-storey domes which fit up to four people and have comfortable double or twin beds both up and downstairs. These domes, ideal for families or groups of friends, come with a wood stove, a private terrace and a private bathroom with a state-of-the-art composting toilet
