Estancias & Lodges
The most relevant lodges at Patagonia, have evolved from what was once a rustic fishing or hunting camp into luxurious world-class accommodation. It is a purpose built facility that has been designed to meet the needs of the most discerning angler. The accommodation has been created with traditional fishing and hunting lodge atmosphere in mind, but also combines elements of modern luxury with wonderful style.
When you're staying at an estancia, you have to consider that is not a hotel where guests retreat to their suites and order room service at night. Visiting some traditional Patagonic estancia is a highly social affair: meals are communal and leisurely, and guests are encouraged to join the family as they gather around the fire, leafing through fly fishing magazines or art books and sharing stories.
The lodges are the key to best fishing and maximum fishing time.
Each river cuts through huge tracts of private land that restricts access, protects the fishery and ensures a solitary experience. There is a good chance you'll have the river to yourself during the days of your stay. These rivers receive minimal fishing pressure which will be evident in the intact riparian environment and of course, the healthy condition of the trouts.
