While there’s plenty of time for reading, swimming and relaxing, days here are generally adrenaline-charged. There is hiking through dense forests, mountain climbing, horse riding, fly-fishing, kayaking alongside glaciers and puffing volcanoes and white-water rafting. All activities are completely personalised with private guides. The lodge also offers more gentle expeditions, as well as massages.
Jaime and Boris, who run the show at Barraco Lodge, are both experienced helicopter pilots and thrill in taking guests to the wildest corners of the region for off-piste skiing, rafting, trekking, kayaking and riding.
The local cook spoils guests with hearty meals to keep energy levels high. Delicious BBQ’s are served outside with stunning views over Lake Tagua Tagua – these tend to be long, indulgent affairs!
Access to Barraco Lodge requires a 2-hour flight from Santiago de Chile and a 3-hour drive, followed by a zip across Martin lake by speedboat. Omar and his oxen, Muchacho and Bonito, wait on the other side to transport guests and their luggage up the steep hill to the lodge. Piping chimneys and Pisco sours await.
Barraco Lodge can be visited year round, although the weather will be warmest from December through to April.
