Our Team
Our fishing guides are locals and have been working with us for an average 10 years— some for 15 years. They are native Patagonians, extremely knowledgeable of our waters and culture.

Access
At Cinco Rios Lodge and Estancia del Zorro we have over 110 miles of private stream access in several ranches. This makes Cinco Rios arguably one of the top three fly-fishing operations in South America when it comes to water access. We have private and exclusive access on 10 rivers.

Fishing Diversity
Cinco Rios and Estancia del Zorro share the best spring creeks of Chile in the pampas, and at the same time provide unparalleled access in the Andes foothills in rivers such as Paloma, Mañihuales, and Simpson. There you will be able to fish blue-ribbon streams every day.

Equipment
We keep our equipment maintained to the best standards. Good drift boats, rafts, jet engines, as well as new pickup trucks provide the best service inside and outside the lodge.

Accommodations

Cinco Rios Lodges are second to none when it comes to comfort and services. The Lodge can host 12 guests with the maximum level of comfort and luxury. Fully climatized.

Six double rooms with two king sized beds per room.

Massage room inside the lodge.

Bar with local draft beer as well as a wide selection of the best Chilean wines and spirits.

The lodge overlooks the Simpson River on a 20 acre lot in the foothills of the majestic Andes Mountains.

Food & Drink

Gourmet dining includes a fusion of local Patagonian and international cuisine, served every day.

Guests arrive in the afternoon and enjoy delicious appetizers and cocktails before dinner.

Our programs include wines and alcoholic beverages. However, we have a special selection of fine wines and liquors that can be purchased by guests (wines over USD 50 per bottle are not included).

Our dinners, wines, and desserts are the best way to end a fantastic day on the river.

At Cinco Rios, we can fish a wide variety of rivers. Some rivers are fished from a drift boat and small spring creeks can be jumped across. We can also fish some trophy trout lakes depending on the current conditions.

The hottest day of the year is February 17, with an average high of 64 F and low of 47 F. It is important to always come prepared for the wind, given the fact it is a constant throughout the season.
