Fodor's Expert Review Weskar Patagonian Lodge

Ruta 9 Norte, Km 1/Puerto Natales, Puerto Natales, Magallanes, 6160000, Chile

Weskar stands for "hill" in the language of the indigenous Kaweskar, to whom owner Juan José Pantoja, a marine biologist, pays homage in creating and maintaining this cozy lodge, which is high on a ridge overlooking the Ultima Esperanza fjord. Rustic fireplaces and several different lounge nooks are ideal when coming back from the windy and cold outdoors. The hotel also has a bar and a restaurant with a simple, daily-changing dinner menu. All rooms are simply decorated in log-cabin style but warm and welcoming with locally woven blankets—and almost all have stunning lake views.

  • great views from your room
  • cozy log-cabin decor
  • rustic and cozy design

CONS
