It was only in 1997 that we personally discovered the beauty and tranquility of the southern border of Lake General Carrera. We feel very lucky that we were able to build our lodge El Mirador de Guadal at the same spot just a few years later.
Before starting to build, we took a long time to decide where to locate each room, so each would have its unique view and privacy. We took also quite some time in designing each room, taking care that the windows would give you an unspoiled view to the lake and the ice caped mountains. We wanted the rooms to be ample and comfortable so one could enjoy reading a book on a rainy day in front of the fireplace. At the end El Mirador de Guadal became, like Puerto Guadal once was for us, the ideal place for a longer stay to discover the southern part of the Carretera Austral.
Not in the least as famous natural resources like The Marble Caves, The Exploradores Valley, The Baker River and The Patagonia National Park in the Chacabuco Valley are all about an hour drive away.
The restaurant was build up hill in the forest at the entrance of the lodge, with a great view through the Coyhue trees to the turquoise waters of the lake and the glaciers of the Northern Ice Field with Mount San Valentin in the background. The internal design was made by Carolina and my sister Etel, making it a cozy place for breakfast and dinner. Of course it is also the place where we receive our guests and help them plan the activities during their stay.
Being a small lodge we take pride in offering personalized attention, making your stay with us unforgettable, for you and for us.
Looking forward welcoming you,
Stefan and Carolina.
