Fantastic fishing awaits here, but a trip to Chile offers much more. It is a unique place where it seems time has stood still for centuries. It is a beautiful place often described as the best of Alaska and Montana combined, with mountain peaks higher than the Rockies and filled with plant and animal species found nowhere else on earth. South of the Chilean Patagonia lake district Futaleufu is a stand alone fishery.

Futa Lodge is located in the most secluded valley in Patagonia. Absolutely the most romantic lodge in the world, sleeps a maximum of six anglers, with its remoteness and stunning mountains. The fishing itself is some of the purest wild fly fishing for rainbows and browns anywhere in the world. Each and every trout that you catch is a perfect representation of its specie. The Futaleufu is a river that has a multitude of different types of water and styles of fishing.
A heavy resident stock of fish and great hatches combined with classic fly water make the Futaleufu a trout fisherman´s paradise. Average rainbows and browns are in the 14”-16” class but much larger fish are caught regularly. There´s even the occasional sea-run fish, guaranteed to put a bend in your rod! In truth though, whilst the chance of a big fish is a daily occurrence, it’s hard to be totally focused on the fishing in a place this special.
The lodge can host up to 8 guests (6 anglers and 2 non-anglers). There are two cottages, one next to the main lodge and one right on the edge of the river. The main lodge consists of a cozy living room with a fire place and two more double bed-rooms.
