Eleven Experiences Rio Palena Lodge: Patagonia


Patagonia is known for its stunning natural beauty, world-class trout fishing, and snow-covered mountains with incredible ski terrain. High up in the Andes, you’ll find remote alpine lagoons. You can whitewater raft the famed Futaleufú, heli-ski untouched terrain, or paddle board secluded rivers. This sensational area of Chile is every adventurer’s dream, and rife with untapped-into possibilities.

The newly remodeled Rio Palena Lodge, which offers seven rooms for up to 14 guests, is the ultimate combination of adventure and relaxation. Open all year, enjoy an action-packed day of sport counterbalanced by a relaxing soak in a wood-fired hot tub, then try a local wine tasting to take in some local culture and truly unwind. The lodge is spacious, bright and airy, with spectacular valley, river and mountain peak views from the large windows. The immense stone fireplace creates the ideal space for an après cocktail by the warmth of the flames under the starry night skies.


Rio Palena Lodge offers 14 acres of property grounds with seven double occupancy rooms with either king or double beds, all with en suite bathrooms. The lodge can cater up to 14 people, and includes a river facing outdoor patio, wood burning fireplace with a view of the Andes, and a wood-fired sauna and hot tub.
