Yankee Way Lodge

Located on the shores of Lago Llqnquihue (pronounced Yan Kee Way) in the spectacular lake district of Chilean Patagonia, this world-class resort offers a rare combination of true luxury, fine dinning, a remarkable diversity of trophy trout waters, and quality outdoor activities for non-anglers.

Equally as impressive as their fishing program, is the lodge’s adventure sport program. Whitewater rafting, mountain biking, single and multi-day trekking expeditions, volcano climbs, and horseback expeditions are available throughout the season. And when you return to the lodge after a day of roughing it, you will be met with a level of comfort and service as spectacular as the natural surrounding. The elegant exposed beam lodge has spared no expense and is among the most tasteful facilities we have ever visited. Enjoy evening wine tastings followed by dinners of broiled chicken, smoked salmon, and local seafood, then retire to tastefully appointed private bungalows boasting leather couches, decadent overstuffed beds, down comforters and whirlpool baths.
