The camp’s facilities include a main lodge, guide center, and 20 yurt cabins–most with lake views. The structures are connected by an elevated wooden boardwalk.

The full-board program at Patagonia Camp includes accommodation; group basis transfers (Punta Arenas, Puerto Natales, or the border crossing at Cerro Castillo); three meals daily; open bar with select beverages; guided excursions in the company of other guests; and national park entry fees.

Laundry service and premium beverages are available at an additional cost.

Accommodations

Staying at Patagonia Camp is no hardship. The yurt cabins are furnished with comfortable bedding, radiant heating, soft linens, and private en-suite bathroom (shower, vanity, and flush toilet). Other features include private terraces, wood floors, and a skylight dome.

The yurts are nestled within the native lenga forest, most with views of the lake and mountains. Wi-Fi is accessible in the main lodge.

Amenities

The main lodge houses a restaurant, bar, lounge, library area, boutique, and reception.

Breakfast is buffet. Most lunches are packed for eating on-the-go during excursions. Dinners are multi-course, and feature fresh regional ingredients such as salmon, king crab, and lamb. A selection of Chilean house wines and beers is also offered.

Adventures

Patagonia Camp’s full-board program includes guided full and half-day excursions in the company of other guests.

The camp’s list of excursions includes hiking, trekking, and kayak options, each graded by level of activity / difficulty. Catch-and-release fishing (self-guided) is also possible.

During much of the camp’s October to April season, privately-guided tour options are also possible.

Private Villa in Patagonia: Paguimalal

PRIVATE VILLA IN PATAGONIA

Looking for a private retreat in Patagonia for your family or small group? Pucon is the outdoor adventure capital of northern Patagonia. Located in the Chilean Lake District, the city rests on the eastern shore of Villarrica Lake, roughly 10 miles north of the snow-capped Villarrica Volcano.

Overlooking the lake and its forested peninsula, Paguimalal is a private, family-owned estate. The name is a play on the names of the owners’ three children (Paloma, Guillermo, and Matilde) and the Mapuche word for “place”. This is an ideal location for families or groups–up to 14 guests–to gather and enjoy this wild region.

Private

The 7,750-square-foot home rests on 44 acres of green fields, wildlife-friendly flowers, and native forest. A stream feeds the swimming pool and wood-fired hot tub.

The homeowners–Marina and Guillermo–spent their childhood family vacations in Pucon, and first met on one of the lake’s beaches. Pucon is part of their family history: Marina’s family was among the first settlers, and her grandfather opened Pucon’s first hotel.

As they raised their children together, the homeowners dreamt of a vacation home in this area. Over the years, they looked at several pieces of land, but none felt right. Then, miraculously, they were given the chance to acquire the estate of their dreams–a privileged location overlooking the lake and peninsula. Even the volcano summit is visible on a clear day.

The home is accessed by a private road and gate, approximately 10 minutes by car from downtown Pucon. The property is large enough to support two helicopters simultaneously.

Charming

Although the home is spacious, guests are charmed by its coziness. The wood-lined interior, multiple fireplaces, and a library of regional photo books draw guests together. Picture windows bathe the rooms in soft light. Gathering spaces are oriented to take advantage of the lake views.

You’ll spend your evenings enjoying prismatic sunsets, relaxing in the garden hot tub, and dining on showcase regional meals. Each dinner is included in your stay, and prepared to your tastes by top local chefs who cook for Paguimalal guests out of deep affection for the homeowners. Beer, soft drinks, house wine, and bottled water are also included.

An experienced kitchen staff prepares daily lunches and breakfasts, included in your stay. An English-speaking concierge is on call to arrange touring and restaurant reservations. Daily housekeeping, with turndown service, is included. Anything you need–from gear rental to on-request laundry service–is tended to expertly.

Exciting

Pucon is sometimes called the Jackson Hole of South America–a place with natural beauty, a vibrant town center, and dozens of outdoor activity options.

Each guide is hand-selected by the homeowners, and most of the excursions are included in your stay*.  Some activities are scheduled in advance, while others can be timed with same-day flexibly.
