Location: Careterra Austral
Hotel Category: Superior
Why we like it: Finished in 2008, this lodge holds just 20 guests. It’s built in the style of a mountain lodge that you may find in Yosemite national park or national parks across North America. Homely and warm – this lodge is frequently voted as one of the top lodges in Chile, The Careterra Austral is Chile’s gem and a must for all road trip lovers and those who love those big wide open spaces.

#4 – Patagonia Camp

Location: Torres del Paine National park
Hotel Category: Superior
Why we like it: A tent in Patagonia? Well why not? In fact we are told they are technically yurts, but hey, we like them. Luxurious fitout and spectacular views over the park really make this lodge stick out as a really interesting place to stay. Glamping with spectacular views at the bottom of the world.. can’t beat it!

#3 – Espejo de Luna

Location: Chiloe
Hotel Category: Superior
Why we like it: Stunning for a number of reasons, firstly Chiloe is one of our favourite spots in Chile, and a must for any Patagonian road trip. The lodge has a big focus on sustainability and won many awards for its sustainable practices. Cabins vary in size, and the restaurant features local cuisine. Well worth a look!

#2 – Hotel Las Torres

Location: Torres del Paine National park. Slap bang at the base of the famous Towers, cant get any better!
Hotel Category: Standard
Why we like it: Don’t know what to do each day? With over 34 different excursion options you will never be bored at Hotel Las Torres. Like Horseriding? They have over 120 horses right here on site and perfect for those who love to ride. Did we mention that the original house was constructed over a century ago and is still run by the original family that founded it? If that isn’t enough, we also find it one of the best value lodges in the region, and our number 1 selling lodge in Patagonia, period.
