You’ve always wanted to fish in Patagonia. Admit it – you have. Don’t feel like the Lone Ranger, we’ve all wanted to fish the legendary water of Argentina. You’ve seen the videos, read about it, and even dreamed about it. It’s on your bucket list. So pull it out of the bucket and just go do it. We’ve got the perfect partner for you.
Challhuaquen, in the local Mapuche language, means “fishing place”. Straight forward, no fluff – this is where people fish. And that’s exactly what it is – the place for you to fish. If you want to fish in Patagonia, Challhuaquen Lodge is the place for you.
Challhuaquen is located on the Futeleufu River, the fishing capital of Patagonia. They fish both flat water and a host of different rivers, spring creeks, walk/wade/float for wild rainbows and browns. And they do it in a place that feels like it’s from another time. This is wild country – wild rivers, glacial lakes and wild fish – no wonder they call it Challhuaquen.
But there’s no reason to think that wild country has to mean roughing it. Challhuaquen is all about luxury for their guests. The traditions of Patagonia call for doing all you can to make your guests happy and comfortable. Elegance, comfort and personal attention to your needs are the order of the day. The lodge has 6 fabulous suites with private baths, each with a breathtaking view and all the amenities. The cuisine is local and fresh, always elegant. Challhuaquen is “all inclusive”. Bring a box of flies or nothing at all. Travel light and use their gear, waders, rods and other gear
Challhuaquen Lodge is a Trout Unlimited Endorsed Business, and a solid supporter of our work. They’re part of the TU team.
