El Pangue, Carretera Austral, Patagonia

Inspected By Experience Chile
Approved By Experience Chile


El Pangue Lodge comprises a number of independent, self-catering cabins, a “club house” and an outdoor, heated pool all set in a Patagonian valley surrounded by nature and beside the Risopatron lake, 28km south of La Junta and 18km north of Puyuhuapi village. As they say themselves, this is an “oasis” of calm and tranquillity.


The El Pangue lodge offers various, self-contained, wooden-constructed cabins with bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens, and dining areas. In addition, there is a main house where there is a restaurant, fireplace living room and games room.

The cabins range from a studio design to three-bedroom options, each emitting a cosy ambience. Breakfast can be included in the service if required.

These accommodation units are spread around the grounds where there are native trees and gardens in-between.

Swimming Pool

Among the facilities at El Pangue is a heated, outdoor swimming pool, which is 18 meters long and semi-covered. This allows one to be in the pool as well as enjoy the fresh Patagonian air and landscape. El Pangue will provide towels for the pool area.


A Quincho in these parts means barbecue area. The El Pangue quincho is built in the Patagonian style, and used often to roast lamb on the spit, prepared in the style of the inhabitants of Patagonia.

A stay here is really to relax and maybe walk some of the trails, fly fish, soak in the outdoor, heated pool or jacuzzi and perhaps go boating on the lake. It also serves as a great logistical stop off when driving either way along the Carretera Austral between Caleta Conzalo or Futaleufu to Coyhaique.
