    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Travelers will have the opportunity to meet local ranchers that have been living off the land for generations as well as the original pioneers of Patagonia, Chile. The lodge is all off the grid, very remote, learning how the entire boutique lodge is run for high end clientele, without being connected to traditional electricity. Languages spoken at the lodge are Spanish and English. You will learn how to take care of yourself and help others in the true wild of Patagonia, where the bartering system is still a way of life.

November and December we will all pitch in for cooking meals, January & February you will need to help prepare your meals with the chef. It is difficult to cater to specific dietary requests at a remote lodge but not impossible. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions. We go into "town" once or twice a week, otherwise you are at the lodge and exploration from the lodge is mostly by foot.
