    Program of a tour

    Steppe and Forest Tour

    Adventure and deluxe fishing for trout and salmon from two select lodges in the Valdivian temperate rain forest and the Patagonian steppe.


    This exciting trip enables the angler to enjoy the adventure of fishing in the most remote spots – way off the beaten track - but with all the creature comforts the lodges provide.

    The itinerary combines two locations in the same area with completely different climates and vegetation crossed by two valleys where access is strictly limited.

    - 1. Access to this location is only possible by jet boat. The location is in the Valdivian temperate rain forest, an area of lush vegetation and countless waterfalls as a result of the constant and characteristic rains.

    - 2. The other valley where access is strictly limited is inside an enormous sheep ranch of about 560 square miles (145 000 ha. – 360 000 acres). It is surrounded by steppe and hills. Although the climate is dry there are countless extensions of water.

    Imagine lodges in the heart of virtually unexplored waters

    The heavily forested valley offers nature, pure nature. An extensive area of local forest featuring stands of cypresses and Magellan’s beech which will be the heart of a private park.

    Rivers, streams and stillwaters where large flies imitating terrestrials and dragon flies will tempt hefty brown trout and rainbows. Combine this fishing with half days at the lodgeside pools full of enormous king salmon.

    Dream of a ranch just for you. A ranch with hundreds of rivers, ponds and spring creeks full of trout just waiting to be caught!

    Just two hours drive away provides a completely different change of scenery: the impressive Patagonian steppe. This is an enormous playground full of streams, spring creeks, medium sized rivers and stillwaters with thriving populations of brown trout. Dry fly fishing! Towards the end of the fishing season king salmon swim upstream in one of the most beautiful fly fishing rivers of Chile.

    There are secluded rivers and stillwaters that are rarely or ever fished throughout the fishing season. Ivan Tarin of SALVELINUS has designed a program with the Head Guide of the ranch guides to access a selection of these trout waters, which are hardly ever fished. Access is via specific trips or stays in one of the supplementary cabins in the ranch.
