Separated from the rest of the continent on Navarino island in Chilean Antarctica, Lakutaia is a remote lodge in a seldom visited part of the world. Located just outside the town of Puerto Williams, Lakutaia is reached either by a short flight from Punta Arenas or motor boat from Ushuaia. Only open between mid September and mid April, Lakutaia offers an opportunity to explore a wild, remote and sparsely populated region that few people ever visit. The lodge itself is nicely decorated with warm and comfortable rooms.
Earning the title of the southernmost hotel in the world, the remote Lakutaia Lodge is well and truly off the beaten track!
There is a large yet cosy living area with floor to ceiling windows looking out onto the Beagle Channel and a restaurant serving classic local cuisine such as king crab. Activities in the area include a once in a lifetime heli-fishing trip where you will be transported by helicopter to areas otherwise inaccessible. There are several excellent hiking trips and the lodge also provides kayaks and bikes for the guests to use. A thrilling overflight of Cape Horn and day trip to Antarctica are also possible.
