Staying at the end of the Americas in Lakutaia Lodge is a privilege of few, you can see places of unparalleled beauty and still untouched. Enjoy the majestic Cordillera Darwin crowned by innumerable glaciers on the southern tip of Tierra del Fuego. For those that love fly-fishing, having the possibility of making it to lakes and rivers that other lovers of this sport can’t make it to is no doubt a very attractive notion.
LAKUTAIA LODGE invites you to not only make this a reality but also to Fly Fish in the southern-most parts of the planet where there are Brown Trout, Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout and Sea Run.
We have often heard of fisheries in countries near the North Pole as “the last frontier” of fly fishing. This Chilean exploration of fly fishing at the end of america is the southermost fly fishing expedition in the Americas. Its latitude is only comparable to the South Island of New Zealand. Base on a HELI Fishing program you´ll be fishing the Cape Horn on Navarino Island area. Be part of this incredible experience!!
Fishing at the most southern river of the Chilean Patagonia, the drainage of the Navarino lake, this river is full of Brook and Brown trout, and minor amount of rainbow trout, this is a river to fly fishing with floating and wet fly’s. We recommend taking a wading stick to cross the river, because this river is very slippery.
The sizes can get about 34” a record worldwide.
