Patagonia Lake District, Argentina


Patagonia’s best kept secret, this beautiful wooden lodge sits on the north edge of Lanín National Park on the Chilean border. It is the ultimate retreat for authenticity and seclusion. Family owned and run since 1908, the landscapes encasing the Estancia are breath-taking and unique. Horses roam free across the ranch and, with over fourteen kilometres of crystal river waters, it is effortlessly tranquil.

Why we love it

The hosts Agustina, Santiago and Isabel immediately make you feel part of the family. They’ve grown up on the Estancia and are experts in the area. Tradition is vital to this experience and this is evident in every detail, from the clothing to the horses, creating an original Argentinian paradise.
