“Wonderful Lodge”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

We also stayed at La Confluencia as part of a Sacred Rides Mountain Biking trip. Excellent accommodations and the food was amazing. The location of the lodge is beautiful and there is lots to do (hiking, hot tubbing, going down to the river, biking, horseback riding). We got the suite which was really nice in that it is a bit larger and has a private bathroom. Thank you for the great week!

Room Tip: The suite is bigger and has a private bath. The internet is a bit slow and does not work sometimes...

I stayed at La Confluencia as part of a Sacred Rides Mountain Biking trip. We were the luckiest mountain bikers EVER! The food was FANTASTIC - thank you Gina and staff! The accommodations were beautiful, comfortable and impeccably clean. The setting was absolute paradise, walking down to the river, up to the hot tub or sauna or out into the garden, it didn't matter where you walked, there were stunning views in every direction. Thank you to everyone at La Confluencia for making me feel truly welcome and at home.

La Confluencia is amazing... definitely the favorite place we've stayed during our 1.5 month trip in Argentina and Chile. The staff is extremely helpful, rooms are quaint, bathrooms are awesome, and the grounds stunning! I'd return in a heartbeat...

Leave the rest of the world behind and experience a truly breathtaking experience at La Confluencia!

I visited Mark and Ellie's beautiful homestead / lodge a few years ago as part of a guided mountain biking excursion in the region. I spent a total of 10 days at the lodge and never wanted to leave...

Their vision to create the prefect eco-retreat has paid off by leaving me with memories of a lifetime. The attention to detail in not only the finishing, but also in the site layout, sustainable design, locally sourcing of food... There is nothing like it.

Definitely a place for those looking to get away, whom have discerning taste.

It's an eco-retreat treat!

Room Tip: They are all fantastic!

We had an incredible family vacation in La Confluencia. The place is beautiful and the location is great for those looking for a mountain resort.

Mark (the owner) and the rest of the staff are very nice people.
I strongly recommend la confluencia for families w/kids that enjoy playing outdoors (horses, bikes, rivers, long walks, rafting, kayaking, etc... ) Please be aware that access is quite challenging and if you're going w/your own car it is imperative to go with a 4x4. Mark can do the pick up if you don't have a 4 wheel drive.

Room Tip: there is only one room w/private bathroom. all others share 2 bathrooms

A Christmas celebrated outside our normal 'snow-ladden' Canada, was a first for our family of four. Recommended by good friends and fellow whitewater kayak enthusiasts, La Confluencia become our home away from home for a week at the end of December, 2012.
An eco-lodge hidden from the normal hussle-bussle of South American travellers is set overlooking a Class III-IV canyon on the Rio Azul. Of course we paddled it's 'aqua-blanco' leading
A serious 4x4 is needed to descend the final 3 kms of steep gravel crosses the Rio Blanco before climbing the final 500m's to the Lodge. If this Rio is too high, a 'nepalese' hanging bridge, complete with missing rungs is the only option. Sheep meandering through the pine forest lead your way up to the most beautiful sight imaginable...a bio garden well planned, brimming with ripe fruit, vegetables, delicious smells and colours that have you rush to capture on film. The expertly constructed log Lodge is built with an eye for beauty and eco-friendly choices, complete with its own hydro-generator that harnesses the energy from a stream a km up hill, wood-fired sauna and hot-tub, yoga room with a wood-heated floor, and spacious decks to enjoy the incredible views.
The kitchen is at the heart of La Confluencia. Ginna ( Guillermina, in Spanish) was our Argentinian chef, trained in Buenos Aires but also had two years of practise in New Zealand. She was at home with both the gas and wood cook stoves, enjoyed using the abundant local carne, pescados and produce. El Bolson is a micro-haven for agriculture and going to the local market 'ferria' is an ablsolute treat - a place I was able to gather many different berries for our traditional 'Rote Grueze' desert - normally originating in the freezer at home at this time of year. Dinner on the 24th was a combination of Argentinian and German Goose (my background) with the very Argentian tradition of an Asado on Christmas Day bringing the community together.
What was most special for us, was to be as close to nature as possible, together as a family, and avoid the stress of materialism that this time of year brings with it.
Thank you Mark and Eli for sharing your precious spot with us. We will be back very soon to continue exploring your paradise.

We stayed for three days in La Confluencia Wilderness Lodge and we were sorry to leave. Mark, the owner, and Ellie, his wife, did a tremendous job in building this beautiful lodge in the wilderness. There is everything for the demanding traveller: comfortable rooms, very nice
bathrooms (book the suite if you prefer a private bathroom; the shared bathrooms are very good too and brandnew), a sauna and hottub, a cold plungepool, all in the green open. There is a huge balcony with a view, a library, big communal spaces and, what was also important for us: the food is excellent and everything is homegrown (organic) and homemade. Chelsea, the cook, is outstanding. There are horses to ride, two rivers to raft, mountains to hike or to bike, so if you love beeing in nature this should be your choice!!
