The Lodges: Fishing
Mincho's Lodge is nestled in a quite corner of Coyhaique. Rooms are spacious and immaculately maintained. Each room has two queen beds, private bathroom and a wood burning stove. The staff is warm and friendly and eager to hear about the day's fishing. The lodge is equipped with a full bar and the best dining in town. Wonderful Patagonian beef and fresh local seafood accompanied by a famous Chilean wine are typical fare. A pine forest surrounds the lodge and the smell of the trees permeates the rooms. The Simpson river flows a short walk away.
The Green Baker Lodge is conveniently situated on the banks of the Rio Baker. Built by a Frenchman living in Santiago the lodge is an incredible mix of comfort and beauty.The dining room hangs out over the river with the sounds of the river drifting in through the windows. Your private cabin has all the amenities. The chef prepares fantastic local foods on our schedule. This is just for fishermen that have added the Baker river extension to their trip.
