About
Bahia Bustamante is a seaside Lodge surrounded by 360° of wild nature in Patagonia. Only a few places in the world house such an amount and diversity of seabirds and marine mammals, which is why it has been included in the National Park "Patagonia Austral". Remote and exclusive, with the philosophy of sustainability and preserving the natural habitat, it is ideal for nature lovers. Activities include bird (penguins and more) and sea lion watching, visit to the petrified forest, to the seaweed industry, and to a typical Patagonian ranch with more than 20.000 sheep, panoramic treks, horseback riding and mountain bike. Relaxing and enjoying the most exclusive sandy beaches and crystal-clear water, surrounded by huge red rocks is also possible.

favorite experience in Chubut
Bahia Bustamante is one of the most magical place we visited in Patagonia. We biked along miles of coastline gravel roads, saw huge colonies of protected penguins and sea lions, and slept magnificently in one of the well appointed yet rustic cabins at "Seaweed Village." Matias, the owner, and everyone on the terrific staff shared their love of the land, their respect for nature, and the fascinating history of the area with all who were interested. The food was great and in the intimacy of the historic dining hall we felt like we'd stepped back fifty years in time. My husband and I hope to return soon...truly one of our favorite places on earth.
