Barraco Lodge , Chile

Barraco Lodge is located on 150 acres bordering Lake Tagua Tagua and the Puelo River in Chile's Lake District.

Barraco Lodge is ideally located to explore the natural treasures of northern Patagonia and the Pacific coast: wild rivers, waterfalls, hidden lakes, glaciers, volcanoes, granite cliffs, and some of the oldest rain forests in the world.

The Lodge is entirely off grid, generating hydroelectricity with a turbine using water from a stream that runs through the property. Water is supplied by the same virgin stream. With a recycling program, the Lodge is 100% sustainable.

Barraco Lodge -  Los Lagos, Chile

Barraco is a typical Patagonian style lodge, built entirely with local craftsmen and materials. The renovation of the main house, 1940 colonial style, was directed by Edward Rojas, an authority in regional architecture. His philosophy is to build in harmony with the surroundings.

At Barraco Lodge we pay special attention to the fresh local ingredients we use. The majority of our vegetables are from our organic orchard and greenhouse; we encourage our guests to visit them and participate in the process.

Barraco Lodge Family House

We offer some of the best Patagonian specialties, such as lamb and wild boar, king crab, and a wide variety of seafood, including of course the locally caught fresh water fish. We cook many typical foods in our clay mud oven. We also have a variety of vegetarian and vegan options, such as dishes

prepared with Morchela (Morels), a delicious wild mushroom from the Puelo Valley. We also offer the famous “Curanto” from Chiloe.

Barraco Lodge Heli-Skiing

Barraco is one of the best equipped lodges in the region, with helicopters, motor boats, kayaks, river rafts, and horses.

Professional guides are available for fly fishing, river rafting, hiking, camping, horseback rides, and heli-skiing.


After a day of adventure, the lodge awaits with hot tubs, sauna, massage, Chef Maite Daroch´s cuisine, selected wines, craft beer, and a cozy fire.
