We are based in the north west of Argentinian Patagonia in the south west corner of Neuquén province, 1,000 miles southwest of Buenos Aires. The lodge is nestled in the lower Chimehuín river valley, a mere 10 minute drive from Chapelco airport. We are also located between two towns within easy reach of both: 22 kilometres from Junín de los Andes, and 35 kilometres from San Martín de los Andes.
Our guests normally enter Argentina through Ezeiza International Airport in Buenos Aires. The easiest way to reach Tipiliuke from there is to take a short two hour flight from either Ezeiza, or Buenos Aires domestic airport (Aeroparque), to the airport in San Martin de los Andes (Chapelco). You will be picked up there by a member of our staff, to take you the short 10 minute drive to the lodge.
Alternatively, you can fly from Buenos Aires to Bariloche airport, which is also approximately a two hour flight. We are able to arrange transfers from Bariloche airport to the lodge, which is a beautiful three hour drive along the famous 7 Lakes Road.
FROM BARILOCHE AND SAN MARTIN DE LOS ANDES – Patagonia
From Bariloche, take Road 237 (also known as Ruta or Road 40) towards Villa la Angostura until you reach the junction with Road 234. Once you reach Villa la Angostura, continue on the same road (234 or 40) towards San Martín de los Andes. Once you reach San Martín de los Andes, or if you are leaving from San Martín, continue through the town on the same road for about 30km until you pass Chapelco golf course. A few miles later you will also pass Chapelco airport on your left hand side. About 7km after the airport, turn right onto a gravel road at the point where the road curves to the left. If you reach a bridge over the river Quilquihue, you have gone too far: turn back, and take the gravel road which will now be on your left. 6km along this road, you will see a sign for Tipiliuke on your right hand side. Turn into the driveway to your right, through the gate reading “Cerro de los Pinos”. The lodge is on the right hand side down the driveway, opposite the corral.
FROM JUNIN DE LOS ANDES – Patagonia

After 6km on this road, you will see a sign for Tipiliuke on your right hand side. Turn into the driveway to your right, through the gate reading “Cerro de los Pinos”. The lodge is on the right hand side down the driveway, opposite the corral.
