Responsible tourism: Chile activity tour

Environment

Respect and care for nature is at the core of the lodge and its place in the Lake District.

Some aspects include the use of only dead wood for heating; production of our own electricity; separate our waste, make compost and reuse what is possible -i.e. ecological bricks; we encourage local trade, and facilitate that our guests offset their carbon print.

In the valley, there is everything - forests covered with native forest; rivers that runs along quiet, green valleys; waterfalls, lagoons and lakes, and even a vineyard. We can discover all this places, doing trekking, rafting, kayak, horse rides and biking (all low carbon activities) - leaving no trace, packing away all rubbish and returning it to the lodge, where it can either be recycled or treated.

The kitchen is fired using local timber, dead wood that is collected, and everything is slow-cooked, reducing the need to use power hungry heat sources.

The lodge aims to exist alongside its environment.

Community

The lodge forms a natural part of the valley, its geography, weather and people and is as part of the community as it is the environment.

Most of the staff are born and raised in the valley, proving work, income and employment and a solid community network throughout the Puelo Basin. Your guide will most likely be from down the road, your food fished from just downstream and the cooked on wood collected by a local.

In 1996 the lodge was purchased by a group of four Chilean associates, and is now run by just one Chilean, ensuring all investment and monies earned and generated are kept within the local area and country.

Food is either sourced on the surrounding land or from local fishermen and farmers.

Because of the lodge's remote location, paying fair prices to all suppliers and guide is written into the fabric of the society, so everyone benefits from your stay.
