Patagonia’s best-kept secret, Caballadas is located to the north of Lanín National Park, the most secluded and scenic part of the Patagonia Lake District in Argentina. The lodge offers the ultimate horseback riding and fly-fishing experiences that Northern Patagonia has to offer.
Located on a private estancia, family owned and operated since 1908, Caballadas offers unique experiences for clients with a passion for high-end, authentic, active travel. The Valley Lodge, or “La Casa Grande” (The Big House), is located at the heart of the ranch, set on top of a hill providing a breath-taking view of the entire valley and surrounding area.
This traditional family house is made of native oak wood and stone, typical of the region. It can accommodate up to 12 people in 8 bedrooms and 5 shared bathrooms. A large communal living room with a fireplace, dining room, and a large playroom for the kids – including a ping pong table – are also included, to ensure pleasure and relaxation throughout your stay.
A key part of any travel experience is the food and the meals at Caballadas are exceptional, whether you are camping or dining at the lodge. Throughout you’ll get to taste a variety of traditional local dishes, including the famous Argentine asados (barbecues). Midday and evening meals are accompanied with fantastic Argentine wines. Morning and evening meals at the estancia are served in the Valley Lodge, where you will be staying. Midday and camping meals are more likely to be a picnic lunch, or a meal cooked over the fire asado or al fresco, in a surreally beautiful setting, or dining at your campsite on an expedition trip.
Throughout your stay, you will be well looked after by your personal chef.
