Retreat location

Patagonia is a sparsely populated region located at the southern end of South America, shared by Argentina and Chile. The region comprises the southern section of the Andes Mountains as well as the deserts, pampas, and grasslands east of this southern portion of the Andes. Patagonia has two coasts: western facing the Pacific Ocean and eastern facing the Atlantic Ocean.

The Women’s Quest Patagonia retreat is in the Southern tip of the Andes in Chile at the Torres del Paine National Park, one of the most impressive sights in the Southern Hemisphere and home to some of the world’s most classic trekking routes.

EcoCamp is situated in the very heart of Torres del Paine National Park, perfectly placed right at the start of the hiking trails.

Food

The price of the package includes daily delicious food at every meal with sack lunches for your day excursions. Dinner in Punta Arenas and lunch on the last day will be on your own. Throughout the retreat, you will experience Patagonian cuisine. A lot of effort is put into developing a menu of fresh hearty meals using locally-sourced ingredients, fusing Chilean, Altiplanic, Patagonian, and international food.

A hearty breakfast is the key to enjoying a day’s trek or nature walk and guests are encouraged to fill up on the tasty buffet selection each morning. Breakfast is served in the community domes from 7:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. and consists of a plentiful buffet selection with hot and cold beverages.

Beverages

  • Coffee (decaf on request)
  • Juice (Orange, apricot, pineapple, and apple)
  • Milk (semi-skimmed and whole milk, lactose on request)
  • Tea (selection of different Ceylon teas)

Buffet selection

  • Bread: White toast, whole wheat, and pitta bread
  • Cereal: Muesli, oats, and cornflakes
  • Cheese, ham, butter, jam, and honey
  • Fruit
  • Milk and yogurt
  • Additionally, fresh scrambled eggs with sausages are also served at your table.

After breakfast, you will be lead to a different buffet table to select the ingredients for your lunch box, which you’ll take hiking with you in your backpack to eat at a viewpoint en-route. The ingredients change each day in order to give your lunch box some variety.

Be creative and mix it up with a wide range of ingredients: whole wheat, white, tortillas, and pitta bread are all on offer, with sandwich fillings including cheese, tuna, salmon, chicken, turkey, ham, beef, salami, lettuce, tomato, pickle, and hard-boiled eggs. Cereal bars, chocolate, fresh fruit, dried fruit, and nuts are also available, so stock up.

Dinner is one of the highlights at EcoCamp, where everybody comes together to enjoy delicious food and a glass of good Chilean wine. The evening begins with a cocktail hour in the bar. Pisco sours, the famous Chilean aperitif, are served with unique additional flavors, including the Calafate berry, ginger, and chili. Appetizers, including cheese, olives, salmon, and crackers, are served with the aperitif.

When dinner is ready, guests are called into the dining dome to take their seats at the table with the rest of their group. Dining at EcoCamp is very sociable, and groups sit with their guide and discuss the day’s achievements and funny moments over food and wine. Dinners are innovative and "nouvelle cuisine", but with appetizers and three courses, you won’t go hungry.

Starters range from salad or soup to carpaccio, and main meals usually fuse typical Chilean dishes, made from beef, pork, or fish accompanied by locally grown vegetables, with potatoes, rice, couscous, or quinoa.

At least once a week, there is a Chilean barbecue, known as an "asado", with spit-roasted lamb. Desserts are generally served in a buffet style, with numerous options available such as torte, panna cotta with rhubarb sauce, chocolate mousse, tiramisu, or mousse with local fruits, and these can all be served with coffee.

Good quality Chilean wine is served throughout the meal and one bottle is allocated per two people. Should you wish to drink more, simply notify the waiter, who will bring you a bottle of your choice and add it to your bill.

Afterwards in the bar, you are free to continue socializing and buying wine, beer, liquor, or soft drinks. Please let Women's Quest know if you have any dietary restrictions. Women's Quest will make sure the food is suitable for you, as well as being very delicious.
