Aguas Arriba Lodge

In harmony with Nature. A new destination

AGUAS ARRIBA LODGE, a secluded realm in the untainted Patagonia wilderness. 

The lodge is located at the Estancia Río de las Vueltas, 37 km away from El Chaltén; with 900 meters of shore along Lago del Desierto, and 1400 acres of mountain ranged forests’. 

Its construction was a true odyssey due to its remote location. Hand built out of natural wood and noble stones, its ample windowsills portray the beauty of its natural surroundings: an emerald green lake, hanging glaciers, forests’, and spectacular views of The Fitz Roy. Its eco-friendly construction assures to preserve nature in its pristine state. 

Accessing the lodge is either by boat or by foot. It is a 15’ boat ride from the south point of the lake along its eastern margin, or a minimum 3 hr hike. The trail guides you into the heart of the forest, home to centenarian trees of the Nothofagus family (Lenga, Ñire and Coihue trees). 

A unique experience; indulge the senses with nature, fine gourmet, and adventure
