Our small and friendly mountain hotel is nestled in the heart of the Northern Carretera Austral, surrounded on two sides by the hills of the Rosselot Lake National Reserve and opposite to the town of La Junta * The Town of Encounters*.
From this location we are close to beautiful Rosselot Lake (8 km), Palena River (1 km), Rosselot River (0.8 km), and countless rivers and surrounding lakes.
The strategic location of La Junta, with Puyuhuapi and the Queulat National Park to the south (44 km), Raul Marin Balmaceda to the west (75 km) and Lago Verde to the east (74 km), makes us an ideal operations center to enjoy the Northern Chilean Patagonia: sports fishing in lakes or rivers, horseback riding, hiking, hot springs or simply riding in a car to enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings of northern Aysén.
