Some years ago we considered contributing to the Mapuche cause from the appreciation and respect for their Culture. Through this project we want to contribute so that this culture remains alive in time and to be able to make it known. For this we wanted to become a Bridge (kuykuy in Mapudungun), which will connect our western culture with the Mapuche-Pehuenche culture.

One of the central values ​​on which the Mapuche culture is based is respect for Mother Earth, the search for balance between human beings and their land. This culture has an ancestral wisdom that teaches us how to live in balance with it, which is why we believe its existence as a culture and way of life today is even more relevant.

Our project achieves an associative tourism development with the Communities creating an experiential bridge between them and our guests. Together with them, we offer services and products that allow these Communities to transmit their history and customs.

Without a doubt, through this project we want to adhere to a new conception of tourism development that is based on the values ​​of Solidarity, Cooperation, Respect for Life, Conservation and sustainable use of ecosystems and the biological diversity that they harbor. The future today.


At Kuykuy Lodge, we are available to propose activity programs of 2, 3, or more days, according to your interests or needs. Feel free to contact us to design your personalized experience.
