Description

In this Destino No Turístico you can enjoy a solar shower, learn how to save energy and experience life in the countryside. Maybe learn about composting toilets or participate in a bio-building workshop … all is possible. Perhaps best of all: go for a walk and mingle with villagers.

Spending time in this truly off-the-beaten track place is to experience not just being bowled over by the beauty of the mountains, rivers and glaciers but also of sharing time with villagers and getting to know daily life in the countryside: to taste sun-baked bread, or work in the gardens. It could even be somewhere to participate in a workshop about organic agriculture, sun energy, or bio building.

ACCOMMODATION - THE ECO HOSTEL: Located in the midst of native forest and in front of the lake, this brand-new hostel has capacity for only 8 guests. There is a twin-bed room, a spacious dormitory for 6 and a kitchen-dining room available for guests. 

ECO KITCHEN: For saving energy and and for teaching, we use the parabolic sun cooker, the solar oven and the hay box. Soon, we will build an eco-fridge.

ECO WASTE MANAGEMENT: We use composting toilets, solar showers and we reuse grey waters for irrigation. We will teach you how these things work and the benefits for the environment if you wish.

WHAT TO DO Birdwatching and native flora observation, or plan to go hiking a glacier,.On foot or horseback, you can hike to the glaciers of Campo de Hielo Norte, explore Bahía Exploradores or go rafting in Baker River. 

ECO-PERMACULTURE: In this little spot of Chilean Patagonia we try to live in a sustainable and responsible way, to cause the lowest environmental impact and ro encourage visitors to lead a sustainable way of life, using the knowledge gained at the Destino No Turístico.

WHERE WE ARE: 1,5 Km from the town of Puerto Guadal, on the “Camino Laguna La Manga” road (at the exit of the town towards Chile Chico). Puerto Guadal is on the southwest shores of General Carrera Lake, 100 km west of Chile Chico and only 10 km from the junction with Carretera Austral (Cruce el Maitén).
