Lake District & Northern Patagonia

A Sublime Landscape of Lakes, Forests and Volcanoes

Los Lagos is Chile’s answer to the Lake District, but it’s on a far larger and more dramatic scale than its English namesake. Much of the region falls within the Vicente Pérez Rosales National Park, and the beautiful lakes are surrounded by forests and overseen by magnificent volcanoes.

In the winter months, this is the best place in Chile to come for skiing, and though the Andean resorts are less developed than their European and North American counterparts, there are some wonderfully unspoilt off piste routes. At other times of the year, come fishing and hiking, or take a dip in one of the naturally occurring hot springs.
 
This part of Chile was settled by indigenous people at least 18,500 years ago. The archaeological site at Monte Verde is of great historical significance as at the time of its discovery it was the oldest inhabited site in the Americas. The remains of burned wood, animals bones, wooden posts, and the footprint of a child preserved in clay suggest that Monte Verde was a village with 20 or so inhabitants.

Accommodation:
Tierra Chiloe

Tierra Chiloe advocates a slower pace of life. Situated amidst the gorgeous blue waters of Chile’s northern Patagonia region, this contemporary glass structure stands on its own island, surrounded by ancient fishing villages. Guests are assured an exceptional experience in unrivalled surroundings.

Accommodation:
Antumalal

Antumalal means “corral of the sun” in the indigenous Mupudungan language. This hotel certainly encapsulates the idea; sunlight floods every space and flows into every room, creating a sanctuary of light and tranquillity just a stone’s throw from Pucón, the gateway to Patagonia.

Accommodation:
Casa Molino

Casa Molino occupies a spectacular setting beside Llanquihue Lake and is surrounded by snow-capped volcanoes. The hotel has a traditional lakehouse feel to it, cladded in wood and situated within 15 acres of pinewood forest.

Accommodation:
Vira Vira

The Hacienda Vira Vira is a gorgeous hotel set amidst the breathtaking glacial lakes, forests and volcanoes of Araucania. It prides itself on adhering to a philosophy of “elegant adventure”, and this is certainly reflected in the coupling of luxurious experience and exciting adventures.
