Reino Fungi Lodge
The quirky Reino Fungi Lodge has taken inspiration from the surrounding enchanted forest of Huilo Huilo for the styling and decor.
One of an eccentric and unusual complex of hotels to be found within the enchanted forests of Huilo Huilo, Reino Fungi Lodge is a quirky tree-house-style property shaped, as its name suggests, like a giant mushroom. The structure itself has 22 rooms, whilst most facilities including restaurant, bar, library, games room are located within the adjacent Nothofagus hotel and surrounding forest. All the styling and decor is inspired by the natural surroundings and crafted by local artists.
Walls, doors and stairs are all carved out of regional wood. In the grounds or connected to the accommodation you'll also find a swimming pool, mini-golf and a spa with massages, sauna and steam room; there's even a micro-brewery.

Highlight?: Patagonia campMM, Southsea
We have wanted to visit Chile for a very long time. You arranged a very special holiday for us, which gave us a wonderful taste of this amazing country.PCA, Riding Mill
Highlight?: Trips into parts of the Atacma Desert that were not in fact desert but little islands of habitation frequented by only a few.RP, Glasgow
Most Memorable Moment?: The stunning beauty of Torres del Paine ; we were very lucky with the weather in Patagonia Our estancia brief visit, en route, was also very nice.RL, Solihull
The whole experience of Atacama and Torres del Paine was amazing. In between Puerto Varas provided a welcome and relaxing contrast. The introductory tours of Santiago and Valparaiso worked very well and the guides were great... but experience tame compared to the other three destinations! Matetic was a fun last day/night.KH, London
Chile was AMAZING!!! We loved the country, the scenery and all the people we met. Glad we had warm clothes for the trip or we would have come unstuck in Atacama, especially when going to the geysers as it was minus ten degrees. As we approached the cruise time we wondered if we'd cope with the Zodiacs, but everyone was so helpful and safety conscious. The all-time highlight of so many on our holiday was, standing in silence at the Pia Glacier.RW, Cyprus
Highlight: The Atacama DesertBL, Tunbridge wells
Three highlights: the trip over the Andes from Santiago to Mendoza with its links to San Martin's epic journey to liberate Chile and Peru in the 19th century; the three Neruda houses in Chile; and the Museo del Barro in Asuncion (Paraguay).JRF, Cambridge
Most Memorable Moment?: Very difficult to pick one from so many but probably the walk up to Torres Del Paine Mirador - although it was a tough day.SB, Milnthorpe
The Alto Plano of Bolivia was striking. Torres del Paine national park too was memorable as was Perito Moreno glacier.GOR,
Long way to go but thoroughly enjoyed just concentrating on one country i.e. Chile which our destinations covered in detail from top to toe and made us feel that we had really experienced life in Chile.CF, Worthing
From the point of view of JLA's organisation of our trip, the most memorable feature was the quality of the many small hotels we stayed in and the unforgettable views we so often had from our rooms. From the point of view of the trip itself, the most memorable places were 6 days of Torres del Paine in glorious sunshine and the indescribably wild and beautiful Southern Ocean.KB, Esher
Chile Best parts of the holiday: “Too many to name one but certainly Moon Valley, the salt lake lagoon, the Glacier at Torres de Paine”SJ, Welwyn
The visit was basically divided into three separate parts - self driving on the Carretera Austral, the ferry cruise which I arranged separately, and the visit to Tierra Patagonia. In their very different ways, all were excellent and memorable.TAK, Ilkley
Highlight?: Difficult to separate a sunny, windless clear day at Torres del Paine ( plus several others nearly as good). And deep snow in the Altiplano round Miscanti lakes. So good even the drivers were taking photos. Both quite excellent.DH, Milnthorpe
Highlights?: Too many to mention ! Great mix of culture, sights and experiences. Love the inclusion of a horse ride from The Singular in Patagonia.HJ,
The picnic by Lake Pehoe provided by The Singular was exceptional- totally exceeded our expectations.YLS,
Highlights: WE have many good memories but we would pick out the guided walk to Laguna de los Tres at Fitzroy and the day to the French Valley at Patagonia Camp and Patagonia Camp in general.SC, Cheltenham
Highlights?: Flying over the Andes Getting close to the Glacier in Patagonia View from Costanero Tower in Santiago The list goes onDW, Winchester
Highlights: Visiting Patagonia and staying at the Patagonia campFT, Mansfield
Highlights: Arrival at Tierra Patagonia hotel: and seeing two wild pumas nearby!PG, Oxford
Highlight?: Easter Island - amazing place - very good food, hardly any tourists and extraordinary history/statues etc. We could easily have stayed an extra night there. I would strongly recommend hiring a car there. We also booked a snorkelling trip which was good.CK, Ashtead
The whole holiday was memorable but Patagonia Camp and the walk to the Torres del Paine was the best. Absolutely breath taking. We wished we had stayed one more night here.CB, Tonbridge
Most Memorable Moment?: Very difficult! Vulcan Osorno, Moon Valley (even if not part of the arranged itinerary!), Tatio Geysers, Easter Island statues...RW, High peak
The excursions in Torres de Paine were exceptional.AD, Cambridge
Each separate part of the trip was excellent. Patagonia most memorable for scenery and Easter Island for history and scenery.RR, Aberdeen
Most Memorable Moment?: Difficult to say as so many. I think seeing the first upright statues on Easter Island as I've wanted to see them since I was a childBN, Marlborough
