About us

More than 20 years ago, the Christensen Arteaga family, on their trip along the Carretera Austral, decided to acquire a property in the most beautiful place of the entire trip, on the shores of General Carrera Lake and very close to the Northern Ice Fields. At first we offered accommodation in cabins built by Eduardo, one of the sons, and homemade food made by the owner of the house, María Soledad Arteaga. Over time, we expanded our offer, created all-inclusive programs, involved local boat services, fishing guides, horse mule drivers, hiking guides, and all the adventure tourism offer in Aysen.

Today we follow the seven brothers very involved and there is always one of the family receiving visitors in Mallin Colorado. As we are fed up and all professionals, each one has a different area in the development of the lodge. Whether it is the sustainable, the finances, the sales and marketing, the gardens, the artistic display, the human resources, etc. Together we make Mallin Colorado a modern, sustainable, family business that enhances the beauty of nature and its resources.

This weekend we celebrate birthday of Tata Eduard, who is the founder and owner of Mallin Colorado Ecolodge 23 years ago. For the first time we were all the children and grandchildren enjoying our own lodge in Patagonia. It was an experience that we prepared with a lot of time and desire, time passed and the illusion grew and grew, until it arrived on Thursday morning and we all met at the Santiago airport to fly to Balmaceda. There were 26 of us who got on the bus in Balmaceda and traveled five hours until we reached Mallin Colorado, where María Paz, the brand new administrator of Mallin Colorado, was waiting for us.
We spent some beautiful days, with very good weather, as always in that part of Patagonia, we enjoyed the horses, the fireplace, the terrace and, why say the walks along the wonderful trails of Mallin Colorado, with native forest everywhere and always with the eternal snows of the Cordón Contreras on Lake Bertrand.
We celebrated with a good roast lamb and goat under the same coigues that received us 23 years ago together with Falucho Beroíza when we first arrived in the area and decided to buy the field. It was a memorable moment, great memories, great tasks to accomplish and many dreams to fulfill. With a large sheet cake with delicacy and nines, we sing Happy Birthday to the celebrated one and listen to a couple of short speeches from all generations. A multigenerational trip, where the aunts enjoy each of their grandchildren, the parents rest from the children who play and entertain themselves with their cousins, where there are no shifts or teenagers to go looking for any party. An adorable, quiet, healthy weekend, outdoors and under the clearest sky in the world. Unmissable panorama for celebrations, anniversaries, any family celebration that you want to celebrate, in a private and exclusive environment, Mallin Colorado and its 15 rooms between Casa Lenga and cabins, is the ideal place to celebrate with the family.
