An Outpost is a last connection to civilization. Leading experiential travel company, Upscape, has recently launched Outpost – Chile’s first off-the-grid, pop-up camp experience found within the vast remoteness of Patagonia’s wilderness, created to escape the buzz of 21st century life.
“The mindset around travel has changed – travelers want challenges, meaning and something not yet discovered. At the same time, the constant presence of Wi-Fi and pressures of social media make finding those moments—and fully enjoying them—increasingly difficult every day,” says Upscape Founder & CEO, Brian Pearson. “We were able to use our deep knowledge of the land to identify lesser-known destinations, outside of the common travelers’ route, to create places where family and friends can come together and truly explore.”
Outpost launches with private and group excursions in Aysén, a sparsely populated area with vast glaciers, fjords and snow-capped mountains, and Maule Valley, one of the oldest wine-producing regions in Chile. Upscape’s inaugural Outpost debuts along Patagonia’s Río Jeinimeni in February 2019 and the Maule region in October 2018 with announcements to follow for Outpost Atacama, Outpost Elquí and Outpost Lakes for the 2019 and 2020 total solar eclipses, respectively.
Despite the vast remoteness, Outpost guests are surrounded by comfort and accompanied by specialty guides intimately familiar with the land. Each camp accommodates up to 16 people in private, furnished tents and offers a relaxing base for trekking, fly fishing, horseback riding, paddling, and photography classes.
Travelers can book Patagonia and Maule locations as private Outposts or join small-group excursions (see dates below). Pricing includes specialty guides, a private cook (daily food and drink) and lodging.
