I actually travelled in March, 2013. Mallín Colorado Ecolodge provided me one of the best holidays ever. It is located next to Carretera Austral, which allows you to take the road immediately and go wherever you want. Due to its location, the temperature is expected to be pretty low, but this fact is perfectly faced by the salamander installed in... More

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in November (honeymoon suite) and found it to be an incredible experience. We flew to Balmaceda and rented a car for the drive down to Mallin Ecolodge. The drive was about five hours and had plenty of wonderful scenery (and plenty of pothole laced rough dirt roads). We arrived in the... More

Mallin Colorado is situated close to the junction of the Carretera Austral with the thrilling lakeshore road to Chile Chico; given distances and low speeds in this remote part of the world, this makes it either an excellent overnight stop, or a base for 2-hour or so drives in the vicinity (the obvious alternatives within 15 mins are Hacienda Tres...

We stayed there for four nights from November 20th-24th, 2012. After our plane got delayed leaving Santiago, we missed the connecting flight to Balmaceda for Puerto Montt and ended up arriving in Balmaceda 5 hours later than expected. The five hour drive was ahead of us and even though we could not enjoy the views that much because it was... More

It is a bit expensive but 100% worth it. The location is excellent if you want to access driving by the day places as: Tortel, Cochrane, Chile Chico, etc. The view from the cabins and dining room over the lake General Carrera is incredible; the cabins are very nice and well equipped. The owner is very friendly and give a... More

We stayed here for four nights, travelling around by car, hiking, and horse back riding. The place is set in a picture like, quiet setting. The very comfortable cabins are set so that you feel you're alone with the view. Paula and her staff were very nice and very helpful. Dinner was good.

Great location and nice food, but too expensive. The staff is very friendly, always willing to help and provide good suggestions for exploring the area. There is a nice hike in the property with an impressive view of a couples of glaciers behind Bertrand lake. The cabins have a wonderful view of General Carrera Lake, but they are not well... More

Dear Eduardo, we are really sorry for the inconveniences you found in Mallin Colorado last summer. We have considered very seriously your opinion and have already improved our services. But I want to confirm that we normally do not close any cabin, since it is a remote location and there is no more people in the property than the staff... More

Its a long trek from Coyhaique, but driving yourself is a great experience. We arrived in time for a brief walk around the main property which is a lodge with individual cabins well spread. The owner is a great source of suggestions which we followed on the three full days we were there. Highlights were the horse riding up the... More

Beautiful chalets (Cabanias) in a quiet and incredible/grandiose natural environment. Really a place to be to discover the beauty and the atmosfer of Patagonia. Location allows to perform several excursions in the vicinity. The lodge provides dedicated guides for your journey.
