Lahuen Co, eco resort & spa termal

Lahuen Co, Termas de Epulafquen is located in Argentina, deeply immersed in the widest protected area of Patagonia, on a landscape made of virgin native forests, pristine lakes, lagoons and mountain streams.

Their philosophy is based on concern and respect for Nature and on the importance of each individual guest. Their concept is very simple: an active encounter with nature combined with superb food and rest.

The lodge has 12 rooms, with views over the mountains, the forest, and the valley. It has been entirely conceived and built using sustainable design: minimal land impact, maximum thermal isolation for reduced energy consumption, on-site biological water treatment, geo-thermal central heating and a micro-turbine to generate most of the electricity.

Their special adventure programs bring the opportunity to hike volcanoes, walk on a petrified lava river, plunge in the native forest or row on the quiet lakes... and after the expedition? recover with a professional massage or in the warm thermal waters.
