GET INVOLVED WITH CONSERVATION EFFORTS IN PATAGONIA AT LODGE CHACABUCO
CHACABUCO VALLEY, CHILE
Located within Parque Patagonia, Lodge Chacabuco and the surrounding space is the site of groundbreaking conservation work spearheaded by the Tompkins Conservation (created by the founder of the North Face, Doug Tompkins, and his wife Kristine) and Chile’s National Forest Service.
It’s easy to see why this is one of our most conservation-focused properties on the planet. Efforts by the Tompkins Conservation are currently underway to connect the 200,000 acres in the Chacabuco Valley with the Jeinimeni Reserve to the north and the Tamango Reserve to the south, coming together to form an astonishing 640,000-acre Patagonia National Park, with Lodge Chacabuco at its core.
During your stay, when you aren’t learning about the fascinating conservation projects like this one, spend time trekking through evergreen forest and vast wetlands and rafting along the Río Baker—one of Chile’s largest rivers and also one of the only ones left undammed. Fly-fishing, mountain biking, and bird watching are other great activities to try your hand at during your stay. After these daily micro-adventures, return to your warm room at the lodge each night. Natural elements including stone and leather make the decor an inviting retreat, and a shared lounge area with circular fireplace encourages you to pull up a seat and share stories with fellow travelers and friends with a glass of local wine in hand. We’re sure this home away from home will inspire you to spread the word about protecting this sensational slice of wilderness in northern Patagonia!
