Campo Aventura is privileged to own more than 100 acres of natural Patagonian paradise within the Cochamó Valley — and to have access to hundreds more acres along little-used local trails.
Our facilities consist of two rustic lodges, constructed from local materials to blend in with the environment and traditional style of northern Patagonia – Riverside Lodge and Mountainside Lodge.
RIVERSIDE LODGE – our ‘base camp’ – is located at the mouth of the Rio Cochamó, where it flows into Chile’s northernmost fjord, the Estuario Reloncaví. The garden blooms with deep-blue hydrangeas, shocking pink fuschias, bright orange michays and other native plants. Our three cosy shared cabanas and cottage, all with en suite bathrooms, can accommodate up to a dozen guests. For larger groups and busy periods, we have access to a four-bedroom, self-contained casa, as well as an additional cabana about 100 metres away from our main facility.
A sandy riverside beach, outdoor tables, a wood-fired sauna, a couple of hammocks, and laundry service are among the facilities available at our Riverside Lodge.
The owners live on-site at Riverside Lodge and, along with our international staff, are always available for information, requests, comments – or just a chat!
Our MOUNTAINSIDE LODGE, at La Junta lies at the “junction” of two rivers, peacefully awaiting guests who have chosen an overnight horse-trek or hiking package. Set amid a sprawling 50 hectares, bounded by two rivers, boasting a small lake, two waterfalls and its own marked nature trail, the Mountainside Lodge is a little piece of paradise! Accommodation is in a traditional, converted mountain cabin – with two double rooms, and a 5-7 bedded family or dorm-style room. There are two shared bathrooms with hot showers.
Upon arrival, after riding up the valley and through the amazing, ever-changing rain forest, you will be greeted by our resident hosts. Hot tea and baked goodies made the old-fashioned way – on a wood-fired stove — will refresh you. While you settle into the accommodations (which include two doubles and a five-bedded room) or stretch your legs, Horació will tend to the horses, and Tatiàna will be preparing a delicious traditional evening meal.
You will dine with your fellow guests in the main lodge, by candle-light, listening to the sounds of the Andean night, sipping wine chilled by the cool river waters. The next morning, after a hearty breakfast that rivals the fare at Riverside Lodge, you will continue with the rest of your planned trip – be it more horse-back riding, a nature walk around La Junta, hiking in the magnificent El Arco national forest, tracing the path of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, mountaineering, or a return ride to home base.
