Aluantu, in the tongue of the native Mapuche people, means ‘Connecting to the light within’.

We are a holistic learning and retreat center nestled in the Andes mountains of the Lake Region in northern Patagonia, Chile.

At Aluantu, we are dedicated to experiential learning, personal transformation, connection to nature, to others, and to light within ourselves.


Set on the shores of Lake Rupanco, Aluantu combines guided workshops in self inquiry, reflection, meditation, yoga and self-care to inspire and support personal growth and transformation.

Connect and share with others, or head to the shores of the lake and find yourself at black volcanic sand beaches. Refresh yourself with a swim in the crystal clear waters of Rupanco or dare yourself to stand under the waterfall. Allow the tranquility of this land to soak into your pores and inspire meditation, reflection, curiosity, wonder, healing and harmony.
