This place is absolutely amazing and very heartwarming. A definite must see when you're visiting Patagonia. Agues Arribas attracts people who are alike and you become friends immediately. Don't worry about the food, it is surprisingly incredible ...and this coming from a foody. the place is secluded and magical at the same time. You can do trips into the wild,... More

When you need to get away from it ALL, this is the place. You're literally surrounded by the end of the earth. Nature at it's best, and this lodge does a great job of providing creature comforts while getting you away from it all. There's more to do than you think. Spend some time here and you wont regret it.

What a piece of paradise this was! We stayed for two nights and that wasn't nearly long enough to enjoy all the lodge has to offer. It takes a while to get here but it's definitely worth the effort. The food was excellent, the staff so warm and friendly that we felt at home immediately. The hiking trails around the... More

Hike in. The reward for the hour walk is beautiful: the extremely tasteful lodge, it's spectacular calming views, the tasty treats, the extraordinary welcome from Ivor and Pato and their special ability to make one believe one simply stopped in at a friend's house to stay a few days. It's a wonderful hidden gem; a spot on the planet not... More

Aguas Arriba lodge is a unique experience with the property offering an "off the grid" travel destination. What a visually stunning lodge located in a prestine natural environment. The owners heart and soul have been put into their property with the challenges of operating this kind of operation evident but done well. I highly recommend at least 3 nights to... More

The owners , guides and chefs at Aguas Arriba went out of their way to make every minute as special and unique as possible. They did not miss a beat with their attention to detail. Such a relaxing , charming place . We would highly recommend to anyone.

we had a very happy 2 days here in Feb 2016. Thanks Maxi and Debbi especially for looking after us. The walks were great. The views stunning - waking up to views of Mt Fitzroy on one side and the Glacier on the other was just spectacular. Food was good. Room clean and bright. Mingling with the other guests was... More

We had a fabulous couple of days there - too short - the location is superb and the staff are lovely. We wandered all over the property with the guide, and over the lake and up the other side to the glacier. It was fabulous. One word - no credit card facilities - all cash!

We had the most incredible two night stay at Aguas Arriba. They have an amazing ability to combine a jaw dropping location with Pato and Ivor's (and team's) impeccable service that is highly personalised without being at all intrusive. We entered the lodge on a three hour hike (by choice - we could have taken the James Bond worthy 15... More

This is the place to get away from it all. You have your own glacier to wake up to. This is a unique property and a unique experience- to be completely isolated at the far end of Lago Desierto. We walked to the lodge, but a boat ride takes only 5+ minutes. The woods surrounding are stunning. This is an... More
