Chile

patagonia-588085_1280

Chile is a country of pristine wilderness and endless exploration opportunities. Chile, is one South America’s most diverse and amazing countries. The long, thin country stretches from the Atacama desert, the driest place on earth, in the north, to the legendary Patagonia at the southern most tip of the continent. Traveling through the country you will see stunning scenery of forests, glaciers, volcanoes and lakes. The Lake District is described as the South American equivalent of Switzerland, and is also called Green Patagonia due to being between the wine rich central region to its north and the wild lands of Patagonia to its south. There are seven stunning national parks, two private nature reserves, 16 major lakes (with many smaller lakes), and plenty of volcanoes to explore. Also part of Chile, although more than 2000 miles away from the mainland, lies the enigmatic Easter Island, where the Moi statues left by an ancient civilization remain an unsolved mystery. Both, the Atacama and Patagonia are extremely remote, but Easter Island is one of the most inhabited place on earth. For Eco Tourists, Patagonia should definitely be on the itinerary. Its jagged snow-capped peaks, alpacas, and untouched wilderness make Chile a journey of a lifetime.

Accommodation

Samadhi Eco Resort

Samadhi Eco Resort was founded in 2016 after 20 years of dreaming and planning by two life-long best friends. This environmentally sustainable and self sufficient Eco resort provides eco-cabins and practices organic gardening and chicken raising. Guests will enjoy stunning views of the Villarica, Ilama, Lanin and Lonquimay volcanoes. In addition, three of the recycled container cabins, and six recycled sewer pipes have been placed into position for the final phases of completion. To prove their commitment to environmental sustainability, Samadhi will be completing the necessary steps to be awarded the EarthCheck Bronze Benchmark Seal by the end of 2018. They will be the first in Chile to achieve this award EarthCheck, the world’s leading Benchmarking and Certification provider. This 123-acre spiritual oasis encompassing an enchanting world of natural beauty and authentic living in the south of Chile, will be open to the public in December 2018.

"Samadhi is an amazing place to stay. The people are incredibly friendly and caring and this project is growing by the day. I couldn't have had a better time there, and hope to one day come back."

"Samadhi. A place surrounded by volcanoes and hummingbirds. Mostly sunny, sometimes rainy, a little bit misty and a little bit magical. A place with fun and loving people, a place with its own dose of craziness and with a unique volunteering program."
