Chilean Lake District (south): Mitico Puelo Lodge

Mitico Puelo Lodge

Thanks to its remoteness and dramatic topography the Puelo region remains largely untouched, with glistening fjords and soaring, snow-capped granite mountains casting long shadows over jewel-like glacial lakes. Beyond the village of Puelo, the few remaining roads peter out and people rely largely on boats to reach their tranquil hamlets. This is one of the most beautiful parts of northern Patagonia.

Accessible only by boat this comfortable, informal and very welcoming hotel sits in isolation on the shores of Lake Tagua Tagua, encircled by a natural panorama of forest-covered mountains. Built entirely of wood it has the cosy and inviting feel of a traditional Patagonian inn. The simple and appealing guest rooms all have central heating and some have views of the lake, while others face the mountains. It’s an ideal base from which to go walking in Parque Tagua Tagua, on the opposite shore of the lake, and one of Chile’s newest private reserves.

What our experts say

Puelo is one of my favourite spots in Patagonia. The beauty of the forest and the colour palette of its lakes and rivers is unbelievable. This great little hotel is a cosy and unpretentious base to enjoy wild Patagonia at its best.
