"This brilliant innovation is brand new having undergone testing over the last couple of seasons. They are already in high demand and can be used on short walks as well as longer treks.
The domes are situated in absolutely stunning locations on the Salkantay Trial. They are luxurious but affordable and boast zero impact on the environment (and this stands up to close scrutiny)."
Mark Wright, The Adventure Connection
The eco-camps are located on the Salkantay Trail in the Andes. Nominated as one of the world’s best treks, this ancient route is an excellent alternative to the busier and more commercial Inca Trail but ends at Machu Picchu. Routes are from two to eight days and you can choose from easy walks to challenging treks.
Five unique and strategically-located geodesic domes. Bedrooms have a king-size bed, hot shower, wood burning stove and solar-powered electricity. Lobby and dining domes have a bar and restaurant with fine, locally-sourced wines and cuisine - a perfect space after a day on trek.
Using solar energy and natural water sources the eco-camps offer guests luxurious glamping in a peaceful setting, while minimising impact on this pristine corner of South America.
As a boy, Raul observed tourists at his grandfather’s hacienda here and this led him to study tourism and become a guide for over 30 years. Concern for the environment inspired him to imagine a sustainable environment for tourists which also benefitted local communities; Peru Ecocamp is the realisation of that dream.
The camps are a result of a passion to create a different kind of tourism: socially responsible adventures for travellers wanting to act responsibly but travel in style and comfort.
