About Us

Weskar Lodge is a family business created and managed by the Sociedad Turística Pantoja e Hijos Limitada, and it's located in their original family residence in Puerto Natales.

" Our first trip to the Southern Chilean Patagonia was 25 years ago, when we were immediately impressed by the sublime landscapes, completely different than any other place that we ever knew. In this remote place of the planet, the pampas, mountains, Patagonian fjords and glaciers converge creating dramatic landscape contrasts that show their supreme expression in Torres del Paine, a worldwide milestone of the Nature Tourism.

In 2000 we bought a small 6000 m2 piece of land in the coastal road of the city, with an amazing view of the Ultima Esperanza Fjord, where the house was built later. Once the construction was finished, several travelers stopped to ask if the house was a lodge and if we offered accommodation -back in that time there were just a few places to stay in Puerto Natales, and tourists travelled straight to Torres del Paine, without stopping in the city. With not much money but with a lot of heart and conviction, we decided to enlarge the house and turn it into Weskar Lodge

Our first guests were Swiss, who stayed in October 22nd, 2005. Years have passed and we happily see how Puerto Natales keeps having the same identity, with privileged nature surroundings, and where the time passes differently, with the style of the southernmost region in the world"
