El Mirador de Guadal, Patagonia

Set in its own woodland, beside a glistening turquoise lake framed by jagged, white-capped mountains marching across the far-distant horizon, El Mirador de Guadal will inspire the explorer within you. It’s an idea that the setting and the hotel itself seem to conspire to encourage.

Make a stay at El Mirador de Guadal part of your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Chile and you’ll find yourself rediscovering the Forgotten Mine. Or trekking to the soaring cascade of the Maqui Waterfalls. Or attempting to photograph the swirling natural beauty of the Marble Chapels. Or walking across glaciers. Or rafting and jet boating over Lake General Carrera.

And staying in secluded luxury, in a purpose-built cabin that welcomes you to each day with spectacular views over the twinkling lake.
