Futaleufu Adventure Center
Lodge & Inn

Nestled deep in the Andes mountains of southern Chile, in a remote sector of Patagonia, lies the little village of Futaleufu and Expediciones Chile’s Patagonia Lodge. This well kept alpine village, with its beautiful town square, will be your host for the week. Guests who have visited us here have compared Futaleufu to Telluride, Colorado – how it must have been a hundred years ago. “Futaleufú is one of the prettiest villages in Chile,” says Frommer’s guidebook, “a town of 1,200 residents who live in colorful clapboard homes nestled in an awe-inspiring amphitheater of rugged, snowcapped mountains.”

Adventure Lodge SLide Show

Situated at the confluence of the turquoise-blue Rio Espolon and the mighty Rio Futaleufu, and way off the international tourist paths, this pueblo offers a taste of the real Patagonia. Centered around our Patagonia Lodge, we have created an international destination for whitewater rafting, kayaking, fly fishing, trekking, horseback riding, kayak instruction and other outdoor adventure sports.

After a hard day of play, it is here that you’re invited to relax and enjoy a gourmet Chilean meal; sample fine Chilean wines; and engage in an evening of leisure and camaraderie around the bar and fireplace where beer, wine, soft and mixed drinks are available. You can enjoy happy hour with our staff and experience a slideshow or video presentation of the day’s activities. Our Patagonia lodge is an example of native wood construction and local craftsmanship providing a cozy, warm and inviting atmosphere. In the lodge we hold classes and meetings, as well as gather for daily adventures in the Futaleufu River Valley.

While most of our guests
opt to stay at our Patagonia Lodge, some prefer a greater cultural immersion experience offered by the other hospedajes, inns and hotels in Futaleufu. Most of these are located directly in town and only minutes away from our own lodge and are booked as part of our trip packages. Whichever lodging option you choose, all of our guests staying in the village of Futaleufu join together at our lodge for meals and to begin adventuring each day. Our twenty year history in this remote valley has allowed us to find the best hotels, inns and lodges in Patagonia that offer the most exceptional service.

The majority of our guests who stay in Futaleufu sleep at our lodge, featuring hotel style rooms filled with natural light, locally milled woodwork, and tile finishes. All of these rooms are warm and charming, following local customs and architecture, giving you a true feel for this quaint village.

For the greatest cultural immersion experience that will provide the most insight in the way of life in Patagonia, it is also possible to stay in a room at a local Bed & Breakfast. This option allows you to have personal interaction with a local family and their culture. A different experience than staying at our lodge or an inn in and not for all tastes.

No matter which accommodation you select, Patagonian culture and nature awaits outside your doorstep. Bike trails and footpaths lead to the river. Our guides, equipment, paddling school, lodge, eco-camps, and ranches, combine to give you the perfect launching pad for exploring the Futaleufu river and exploring its tributaries.
