Hostería Mirador del Río

Farmstay in La Junta

Retreat from the dusty Carretera Austral to this charming farmhouse run on solar and generator power. The family is lovely and breakfast satisfies with homemade jam and bread hot out of the woodstove. The son is a guide offering float trips down the mellow Río Palena or sportfishing. It's outside town, on the way to Raúl Marín Balmaceda.

There's also a hike to an alpine lake (6km round-trip).
