Ecobox Andino Lodge


Ecobox Andino is a group of completely equipped cabins, with a capacity for 5 people. There is a pool, access to wi-fi and satellite television. Big windows equipped with the technology needed for a comfortable stay and enjoyment of the great views.


Inserted in a Ñire tree forest, with a privileged location in the Las Trancas Valley allows enjoyment of the beautiful mountain landscape at any time of the year. Only 8 km from the ski resort, where snow sports can be practiced, and close to the spectacular natural wonders, offering varied alternatives for tourism in the outdoors such as trekking, walks, or horse rides; visits to cascades, ponds, natural reserves, observatories, and many other things you can enjoy.


Ecobox Andino , mountain lodges are inserted in a Ñirre tree forest. They have an innovative design that is kind to the native vegetation. The lodges were constructed from modified containers which are thermally insulated and have raised walk ways between them to lessen the wear on the native vegetation.


Taking care not to disturb even the smallest plants, Ecobox Andino seeks to conserve the native vegetation to the greatest extent possible. Containers seemed to be the best choice for the lodging accommodations. These were placed by cranes so that there would be a minimal energy output, to conserve time, and most importantly so that there would be the least deterioration of the environment. A small amount of soil compaction occurs since the containers as well as the walkways are elevated.


In addition to the walkways there are trails that lead to an area where you may build a fire safely with a minimum impact and there is a pool surrounded by a forest with a wooden deck, cascade, and illumination.


There are four Ecoboxes for lodging, each with a capacity for 5 persons. Refugio del Bosque (Forest Lodge), Refugio del Sol (Sun Lodge), Refugio del Cielo (Sky Lodge) and Refugio de la Tierra (Earth Lodge).


The Ecoboxes are built from modified containers which give them an innovative design and are thermically insulated for a comfortable stay. They have thermo panel windows, slow combustion wood heaters, and a wood heater inserted in the wall of the dormitory. The entrance may be used to store ski equipment and fire wood for the heaters.
