Scale of 90-100
Set atop a cliff, this handsome lodge is located within sight of one of the more placid sections of the Futaleufú River, outside the small town of the same name. Once owned by Doug Tompkins, the founder of North Face, and his wife, this property encompasses just 15 guest accommodations tucked away in a forest of beeches and cypresses, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, an outdoor Jacuzzi and a spa with a sauna, hammam and fitness center. All lodgings display an attractive interior design that features expanses of blond-wood paneling, private decks and sitting areas. The best accommodations afford views of the confluence of the Futaleufú and Espolón rivers, meadows dotted with grazing sheep and cattle, and mountains beyond through huge picture windows. First-rate meals are served in an inviting dining room or on a panoramic deck. Many of the ingredients employed by the kitchen are sourced from the estate’s own farms and orchards. A wide array of adventures can be arranged. Not to be missed are the horseback riding excursions and the whitewater rafting trips.
Dining on the clifftop deck; the fresh farm-to-table food.
The organization of the off-site activities is a little impromptu at times.
Good to Know
The vast majority of the roads in Patagonia are made of dirt and gravel, so be prepared for some rough rides. Also, flat tires are a way of life down here.
