Barraco Lodge

In a world of blue, green and turquoise, just inside Chile from the Argentine border near Puerto Montt, Barraco Lodge is one of our secret Patagonian trip-planning weapons.

The lodge sits in a valley above lake Tagua Tagua (sister valley of Cochamo which is considered as the ‘Chilean Yosemite’) which gives its name to Tagua Tagua park, a pristine wilderness of native beech forests and granite rock formations. The lodge has crazy fly-fishing and of course superb hiking and horse-back riding, as well as paddling on the lake, and access to world class climbing and cross-country summer skiing. If you’ve never fished before, they lay on excellent classes. Speaking of classes, you can roll up your sleeves in the kitchen to learn how to make traditional dishes and cook with the local produce. Or you can sit back and enjoy the really high quality food coming out of  the kitchcn. And if you are an adventurous soul, there are two helicopters to take you out to discover volcanoes, valleys, lakes and rivers. All in all, there’s a lot to love at Barraco Lodge.
