Huilo Huilo Canopy Village
Reviewed March 3, 2013

This place isn't easy to get to, there's a long drive but it is worth it. The place is so unusual in design and the area is stunning. I'd recommend camping so you can enjoy the hotel's services but without having to pay for a room.... Then at the end of your stay, have one splash out night in one of the fabulous rooms!

Awesome place in Patagonia, Southern Chile. Worth the journey through Los Rios, past some spectacular lakes volcanoes and mountain ranges. You need transport to fully appreciate this beautiful region, and accommodation can be a bit sparse, but not at Huilo Huilo. You get there by following the International road through Los Rios, which goes past Huilo Huilo to the border with Argentina. The hotel is an extraordinary concept, located in a private rainforest reserve between 2 stunning lakes and a volcanoe

The canopy village is a great place to stay when visiting Huilo Huilo. It's less expensive than the main hotels, and there are plenty of amenities: a large kitchen to cook in, a private bathroom (not inside of the treehouse, but in the main building just 50 yards away), and a cozy lodge with multiple fireplaces and a large balcony (where private events are probably held, but it was open to canopy villagers when we stayed there). The treehouse had electricity and two space heaters. It was stocked with cots, sleeping bags, and a small table.

Although we were staying in the Canopy Village, we had full access to the main hotels, where there was wifi, restaurants, and excursion booking. Our only mistake was not bringing along enough groceries and having too many meals in the expensive hotel restaurant. If you have a car, there ARE small grocery stores down the road in Neltume. We did enjoy the cervezeria, which is very close to the Canopy Village and which serves beer and some food (we had pizza) until 8pm.

Huilo Huilo in general took some figuring out. The place is privately run and pretty much every excursion available requires a fee. There are no maps and really no room for non-guided exploration. We did two hikes from the reserve entrance, and both had modest fees (about $10 usd). We also walked up to Puerto Fuy and back to the Huilo Huilo lodges on a trail that goes along the river. This was a nice hike but wasn't printed on any maps. We fished with guide Miguel on the Rio Blanco, which was a real treat. Note that you aren't allowed to go to the river at all without Miguel, so it's worth hiring the guide. With your own car, it costs about $120 usd per person. We kayaked in the lake from Puerto Fuy. As usual, this involved not just renting kayaks but going out with some guides. The guides were nice: they carried water for us and took our picture. The kayaking was about $30 usd per person, and the views were nice.

The buildings all around the Huilo Huilo complex are spectacular: from the Puerto Fuy lodge to the Cervezeria to the Cafe del Bosque by the park entrance to the Magic Mountain Lodge. Just seeing it all is an experience and worth the trip to Neltume and Huilo Huilo. At the point (early 2013), it all seems relatively undiscovered by travelers outside of Chile and Argentina.

Stayed in a treehouse for two people and enjoyed panaramic views from inside and all along the walkway leading around canopy village. Treehouses had light and heating which was an added bonus I hadn't been expecting! Unique concept, very good price and a very fun way to spend a couple of nights in such a beautiful place. We visited the hotels but genuinely think canopy village is the most entertaining place to be if you want to wake up surrounded by nature. All of the Huilo Huilo reserve is amazing and there's lots to do, either wandering around the different attractions or opting for paid excursions. The only annoying part was trying to leave, we waited three whole hours outside on a Sunday for a public bus to show up, perhaps the hotel, given that they promote sustainable tourism, could have clearer information about bus schedules or more reasonable group transfer prices (not everybody travels by car!). All in all an amazing time was had though, I'd go back to canopy village again for sure!
