The spirit of El Casco Tipiliuke Lodge
El Casco Tipiliuke Lodge sits at the heart of the estancia Cerro de los Pinos, founded in 1909 by the Larminat family. One of the first established ranches in Northern Patagonia, the estancia covers almost 50 000 acres of property at the foot of the Andes Mountain range. Tipiliuke is a working cattle ranch, with authentic gauchos who watch over 4 000 heads of cattle.Guests can revel in tailor-made activities, authentic and refined cuisine and personalised service. The lodge is ideally located just minutes away from the airport of San Martín De Los Andes and a three-hour drive from Bariloche Airport. Tipiliuke’s prime position within Patagonia makes it a mecca for nature enthusiasts. A rich variety of fauna and flora flourishes here due to ideal conditions and large volumes of water.
The lodge offers just nine beautifully decorated ensuite rooms, ensuring personalised and attentive service. Wi-Fi is available throughout the lodge and there are plenty of outdoor seating areas where one can take in the incredible views that make Patagonia famous. In the evenings, sip on a delicious glass of Malbec while you enjoy the company of your fellow guests around a roaring fire under the Southern Cross. Guests can also unwind in the lodge’s sauna or enjoy a soothing massage.
