Your home in Patagonia

El Pangue Lodge Protocols

Pangue Lodge’s grounds are dotted with cabins ranging in size from studio to three-bedroom options all along 39,5 acres. In Covid-19 stigmatized times, one bedroom cabins are a great choice for a secluded and cozy escape in the middle of the woods, with no risks of shared areas. Our two to three-bedroom cabins are completely self-sufficient and independent, featuring a kitchen and living room overlooking Risopatron lake so every family enjoy within a safe zone.

We expect to provide a good service under these new conditions so you can enjoy of such beautiful place as this one. We are also aware of the local authorities’ news to be able to operate and guarantee our visitors’ safety.

We’ve created a handbook with cleaning and disinfecting protocols based on the Chilean Department of Health and Department of Tourism, which will be implemented in all of our cabins. We’ve also updated the Protocol for prevention management of COVID-19 for restaurants.
