About Un Destino No Turistico Eco Camping & Hostel
We exist because there are travellers (“no tourists”) who take the time to know the region and its people, those travellers who are concerned about the environment and their carbon footprint and who are interested in organic agriculture, renewable energies, solar cooking, bio-building, recycling, permaculture…
On foot or horse-riding, alone or with a local guide: you can hike to the old Escondida mine, or to the fossil sites...If you are lucky, you will have a “mate” tea with a farmer, or visit the neighbour garden… Any trek is a good way for connecting villagers and their traditions.
If you are a slow traveller, you got to the right place: where savour a sun-baked bread, get wool from a farm, experience hay-box cooking, explore the off the beaten track surroundings, discover the interesting local history… and finally understand the Patagonian saying: “who hurries, wastes time”…
In this little spot of Chilean Patagonia we try to live in a sustainable and responsible way, trying to cause lowest environmental impact and encouraging visitors too. We apply knowledge based on Permaculture and Ecology.
FAIR TRADE BREAKFASTS: We have wholemeal bread baked in the sun cooker, jams made in town, Fair Trade coffee and organic teas.
ECO-INFO: In the hostel you will find wide information about Permaculture, organic agriculture, straw bale building, solar cookers, conscious consumption...
FAIR TRADE SHOP: With samples of regional craftsmanship and local food.
TV, PHONE, Wi-Fi: On 47º South latitude, we will not offer you these service. Enjoy it!
This new Eco Hostel has capacity only for 8 guests in: a twin-bed room, a spacious dormitory for 6 people and a kitchen available for travellers.
- Eco-Kitchen: For saving energy and learning, we use the parabolic sun cooker, the solar oven and the hay box. Soon we will build an eco-fridge.
- Eco-Toilets: We use composting toilets, solar showers and we reuse grey waters for irrigation.
-Hostel and Camping rates include: kitchen facilities, organic teas and access to the ecological information area.
-Rates don´t include Fair Trade breakfasts.
-Cycle Discount: 10% off for cyclists on hostel and camping rates.
-Tent 4 Rent: If hostel is full, meanwhile you can rent a tent with bed linen. Max. 2 people
