Founders Journey Part I: Lodges of Patagonia

Returning from Patagonia’s two newest lodges as well as their old favorites, Knowmad Founders Tara and Jordan are eager to share their adventures at these world-class properties. 
First stop Santiago to visit the Knowmad Chile team!
Poolside? Yes, please. The Aubrey Hotel, Santiago.
After a short flight south, Tara and Jordan arrive in Puerto Natales. 
Day hike to the base of the Towers. 
The first “lodge” they visited was EcoCamp, which is truly luxury camping in these eco-friendly domes powered by solar panels. 
The fires left an eerie landscape in some parts of Torres del Paine National Park. 
Hiking towards Los Cuernos.
Lunch lakeside with newfound friends.
