Get­ting There

DestinAsian - - DISPATCHES -

There are daily flights, weather per­mit­ting, from San­ti­ago to Bal­maceda. From there, it’s an eighthour drive to Patag­o­nia Park via the lake­side town of Puerto Río Tran­quilo. Where to Stay In the heart of Patag­o­nia Park, the Lodge at Valle Cha­cabuco is built from lo­cally quar­ried stone with rus­tic ceil­ing beams and floors of re­cy­cled and re­fur­bished wood. Decor is sa­fari-chic—think black-and-white wildlife pho­tog­ra­phy, leather arm­chairs, and hand­hewn fur­ni­ture. The cen­tral lounge area, with an open fire­place and views of Mount Ta­man­guito, is the per­fect perch to en­joy a Patag­o­nian beer or wine af­ter a hike through the fields ( open from Oc­to­ber 1–April 30; patag­o­nia­park.org; dou­bles from US$400).
