Situated between the Renihue and Negro rivers in southern Chile, The North Face Founder’s Patagonian Farm is an adventurer’s retreat. The property is part of conservationist and businessman Doug Tompkins’ Conservation Land Trust and consists of 1,750 acres. Its waterfront setting allows for fly fishing and kayaking, while the Valdivian rainforest offers bird watchers a variety of exotic species.
Accommodations include a restored five-bedroom main house with a gourmet kitchen to prepare farm to table fare from the two organic gardens and three wood-stove heated greenhouses, as well as a guest house, farmhand housing, management offices, repair shops, and airstrip. Along with views of forests, mountains, and rivers, the farm also offers glimpses of the neighboring Pumalin Park Sanctuary’s Michimahuida Volcano.
