Love this place. Stumbled across it the way one does when planning a trip via the Internet; had not been planning to go to El Chalten or anywhere near it, but this place seemed special and worth rejiggering the plan. So glad we did, as El Chalten (and Estancia La Quinta, separately reviewed) should not be missed while in this...

Wow! We were taken by storm when traveling to Aguas Arriba Lodge on a sunny afternoon sailing to the Lodge with Fitz Roy in the background and beautiful glaciers to the left. The lodge itself is luxurous, beautiful and extremly cozy. The owners and their staff go out of their way to make you feel at home from the very...

Ivor picked us up by boat and after 10 minutes later we arrived in paradise. It felt immediately like home. We were welcomed with a delicious lunch on the terrasse. The rooms are comfortable, the food delicious. The most special part was the personal contact with the other guests , the owner Ivor and all the personnel. The view from...

Aguas Arriba and Lago del Desierto. Hiking through ancient forests and glaciers. Fly fishing for beautiful rainbows. Natural tree sculptures at every turn. Always in the shadow of Mt. Fitz Roy. Memories of this lodge and the genuinely wonderful people (including Pato and Ivor, along with Inez who guided us through the landscape) will always stay with us. Superb cooking,...

Reaching Aguas Arriba - 32km of rocky road from El Chalten and then boat across Lago del Desierto - felt like an unfolding Henry David Thoreau essay: the further we travelled, layer by layer the natural world revealed itself in all its wonder. But this extraordinary hand-made lodge is luxury within a wilderness. Pato and Ivor have gone to great...

Ivor picked us up in his boat for the beautiful 10 minute ride to the lodge which sits near the glacial lake across from spectacular glaciers - where we were greeted by his wife Pato. The proprietors made us feel as if it was our home right away. All of my expectations were surpassed - the rooms are beautiful and...

Pato and Ivor have created some kind of alchemy in their beautiful lodge in an extraordinary part of the world. The lodge sits on a lake about an hour outside El Chalten, with no other buildings and few other people in sight. You'll travel by car and then by boat - but the journey is worth it (and really, part...

This lodge is very special and is the only private property (for an exception of a small house and the Chilean border security patrol) and has views for days including the north face of Mt. Fitz Roy in the distance, Mt. Torre and the Vespignami Glacier right in front of the lodge. Full board and activities are included (breakfast, lunch/picnic)...

Pato and Ivor have created a special destination which surpasses every expectation - the lodge is located in a beautiful, remote region of Patagonia. A welcoming haven which encourages enjoying the environs - walking, photography, vista viewing, picnicing, yoga, new friends and great food. However, do not expect boundless internet connectability, mobile telephone access nor similar 21 century interruptions. This...
