More than 20 years ago, the Christensen Arteaga family, on their trip along the Carretera Austral, decided to acquire a property in the most beautiful place of the entire trip, on the shores of General Carrera Lake and very close to the Northern Ice Fields. At first we offered accommodation in cabins built by Eduardo, one of the sons, and homemade food made by the owner of the house, María Soledad Arteaga. Over time, we expanded our offer, created all-inclusive programs, involved local boat services, fishing guides, horse mule drivers, hiking guides, and all the adventure tourism offer in Aysen.
Today we continue the seven brothers and sisters very involved and there is always one of the family receiving visitors in Mallin Colorado. As we are grown up and all professionals, each one has a different area in the development of the lodge. Whether it is the sustainable, the finances, the sales and marketing, the gardens, the artistic display, the human resources, etc. Together we make Mallin Colorado a modern, sustainable, family business that enhances the beauty of nature and its resources.
Eduard and María Soledad, pioneers of this story. They spent the coronavirus pandemia living in Mallin Colorado, eventhough it was during the winter.
