Feature

Patagonia Camp, a glamping destination in the Patagonia region of Chile, was designed to immerse guests in raw, unadulterated nature.

With a focus on reducing its own carbon footprint as much as possible while providing an ultimate luxury experience, Patagonia Camp has endeavored to install a number of measures to aid its sustainability goals. To reduce overall carbon emissions, the camp places huge emphasis on energy optimization and uses low-power appliances and generators.

To keep the nearby lakes and waterways clear and pristine, the organization secured a 100 percent organic water treatment plant. Everything used at the camp is biodegradable. Organic waste collected at the camp is composted by way of compost worms, which go toward the farmland for cultivation of the herbs and vegetables grown on site.

Finally, recycling is a huge priority at the camp. Glass and plastic are rarely used, while canteens are provided for all guests.

Not every type of vacation will have a sustainability focus, but for ones revolving around nature, the focus seems natural.
