Estancia La Josefina


Estancia La Josefina is an environmental tourism project on the shores of the Lago San Martin, curated for adventure travel.

Estancia La Josefina sits on the border of Chile, straddling the shores of binational Lago San Martin-O’higgins.

Immersed in nature and far from civilisation, Estancia La Josefina offers a sense of unparalleled solitude and vastness. This family-run property shines for adventure, tourism, and exclusivity.

What we love about Estancia La Josefina

  • Encounter virgin nature, a boundless landscape, and undisturbed wildlife.
  • Stay in one of three dome rooms, each with a private bathroom, hot water, and wood heating, accommodating up to four people.
  • Horseback riding, hiking, fishing, kayaking, and boat trips are all on offer to help you fully appreciate the surrounding environment.
  • Savor the flavors of Patagonia with barbecues, garden-fresh vegetables, and lake-caught trout prepared on traditional wooden stoves.
  • Embrace solitude with no cell phone signal and limited internet use.
  • Estancia La Josefina is an environmental project, and sustainability is front and centre. Wind generators, solar power, and wood heating provide energy to the domes.
