Errante is an ecological refuge at the end of the world, located in Cabo de Hornos, the southernmost part of the Chilean territory. A place found not too far away from the Antarctic, where nature maintains its original state and man can rediscover silence and elemental time. Along with voyages to places of unimaginable beauty that remains wild and unexplored, Errante is also a place that hosts audiovisual artists from all over the world.
Built by its owners’ hands, following an eco-efficient architecture that finds natural light at its base and uses local materials, our Refuge becomes a respectful part of the Biosphere Reservation. Errante has become a magical space for people that are looking for a quiet spot far away from city noise, and it’s found not too far from the remote Antarctica.
Looking down into the historic Beagle Canal and protected by a mountain range that forms the Dientes de Navarino, the lodge becomes a meeting point between guests and nature, inviting our travelers to rediscover point zero, using the following 3 dimensions: Voyages+Silence+Creative Art.
The Errante Excursions are conceptualized as a form of encounter between the traveler and wild nature, in its original state, also as a connection with local inhabitants and the footsteps of the ancients, from the Yagan to the explorers of nature of the 19th century. From quiet walks to just tune the noise of travelling down a little, to highly demanding treks like the famous “Dientes de Navarino”-circuit, Errante looks to offer a true connection with the territory.
Many hands participated in this project with love and inspiration, dedicating their time and efforts to this place, including local and foreign workers and volunteers from all over the world. And this is the way of living of Errante till now, due to the step and experience of each guest.
Every year the Lodge welcomes audiovisual creatives from all parts of Chile, to participate in ARCA, an artistic residency that looks to improve creative processes of artists at the beginning of their careers, proposing new reflections and views over this vast and diverse country. Thanks to the alliance of Errante + Arca, it was possible to develop the lodge to a place that invites to creative retreat and contemplation next to a wild and constantly changing landscape.
