About The Hotel

Zapato Amarillo a small chalet with grass roof and wooden interior, set in a landscape of extraordinary beauty, where the discerning traveler may find a cozy place to rest tired feet, and savor oven-warm home-made bread and delicious Chilean fare. Enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the "Land of Blue Mirrors", so called for its innumerable lakes, reflecting snow-capped, elegant mountains, towering over lush native forest.

Our lodge is run by a Swiss-Chilean family, and located amid beautiful and peaceful countryside some 1½ miles from the picturesque town of Puerto Octay. We offer double & dormitory rooms, evening meals such as fresh salmon dishes, vegetarian food and salads, as well as home-made "Puerto Octay" cheese fondue.

We have a spacious garden, parking facilities, Internet access, a laundry service, and a clean kitchen for guests (self-catering or otherwise). We provide good, accurate and up-to-date information and maps of the area and the usual treks undertaken. We also offer luggage storage facilities. We rent out bicycles, a sailing boat (laser 2), climbing & camping equipment (ice-picks, tent, etc.), a car and camper-van. There is also a well-maintained library of English, German, French and Spanish books. The "Zapato Amarillo" (Yellow Shoe) is the perfect place to either "chill out" after an exhausting expedition to Patagonia, or to “tank up” before a difficult trail to the mountains, or further south.

Puerto Octay is a picturesque town of 3,500 inhabitants at the sheltered, western shore of Lake Llanquihue, the largest of ten beautiful lakes, with spectacular views of Calbuco, Osorno and Puntiagudo volcanoes. The surroundings merge from the green, rolling hills around lakes Rupanco and Llanquihue, through to the lush rainforests of the Andes. This beautiful environment provides opportunities for many outdoor activities such as walking, hiking, mountaineering, horse-riding, mountain-biking, sailing, fishing and canoeing. Furthermore, the traditional way of life and breathtaking scenery may provide the necessary inspiration for drawing, painting and photography.
