It’s this hotel’s bizarrely beautiful shape, designed to imitate that of a sun-bleached fossil on the ruggedly wild shores of Lake Sarmiento, which makes Tierra Patagonia such a striking place to stay. In fact, this sustainable lodge is known worldwide for its innovative architecture, which blends naturally into the landscape. The revitalised pampa, where the complex is based, has benefited from great conservation efforts, as well as focus on minimising footprint in this beautiful area.
This impressive blonde-wooded, design-led ‘shell’ houses 40 simple yet sophisticated Scandinavian-style rooms. Their exposed timber interiors create a tangible Sauna-like warmth that contrasts well with the views of the desolate pampas outside. There are family apartments of two adjoining rooms available, as well as the extensive Uma Spa, which is particularly welcomed after a hard day hiking the Torres del Paine National Park, which is simple given the hotel’s superb team of guides and the varied activities on offer here. From horse riding to climbing, this great range of opportunities means you really can take full advantage of your truly magnificent surrounds.
Energy efficient and protective of surrounding landscapes
Tierra Patagonia supports Reforest Patagonia, a citizen campaign to plant 1,000,000 native trees in Chilean Patagonia. Tierra expresses its desire to protect these lands through a stated commitment to the United Nations’ World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), and its Global Code of Ethics for Tourism.
Built with local materials, the resort is designed to be water and energy efficient, and can often operate without the use of air-conditioning. The lodge also utilises the likes of LED lighting, while also controlling its thermal efficiency to reduce the cost of energy. There are also visible results of the careful building process that was executed on site, as today, there’s visits from extensive wildlife, including guanaco, ñandú, native birds and foxes.
