Discover the exceptional wildlife sanctuary and geological history at Bahia Bustamante Lodge with the shores of the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the never-ending Patagonian steppes on the other.
Witness the abundance and diversity of birds, marine mammals, and steppe wildlife and their ecosystems on this vast property and nearby islands. From the Magellanic Penguins, sea lions, and elephant seals to the Patagonian cavy, Darwin’s rheas, guanacos, grey foxes, and armadillos.
Lorenzo Soriano, a Spanish immigrant, founded the ranch as a settlement for seaweed collection in the 1950s. Two generations later, his descendants welcome guests to experience the lodge’s natural wonders while maintaining a sustainable wool farm.
The main lodge is the former General Store of the settlement, where you can enjoy the restaurant, bar and living room, or the historic Memorial room and library. The former living quarters of the first settlers are the cabins where you can stay, preserved in their original Patagonian style, some with views of the oceans, others facing the steppes.
On the ranch, you can go trekking through Mesozoic era canyons or visit the 60 million-year-old Petrified Forest. You can also access white sand beaches and dive into the crystal clear waters of the ocean or relax in natural tide pools dotted along the property’s coastline.
Luxury at Bahia Bustamante Lodge is the chance to enjoy the vastness of nature which will surround you and that few places in the world can offer.
