Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive at Remota Patagonia Lodge

Your trip begins on the Strait of Magellan in Punta Arenas, one of the world’s southernmost cities. You will fly into Presidente Carlos Ibáñez del Campo International Airport (PUQ) and be met by a representative from Remota who will drive you the two hours to the lodge. On the drive, you’ll pass large estancias as well as some rivers you may fish during the week. Upon check-in, you’ll meet your trip host and settle into your room before meeting the rest of the group for dinner.

Days 2-6: Activity Days

Breakfast in the main dining area begins at 7:00 AM. After breakfast, usually around 8:30, anglers are paired up, two anglers per guide, and depart for a full day of fly fishing on a variety of waters in the area. Non-anglers will meet their guide for their selected activity that day and head to Torres del Paine or the surrounding area. Around 6:00 PM, everyone will return to the lodge and have time to freshen up before dinner. You can choose to join the rest of the group for dinner or dine on your own. Dinner is served until 9:00 PM each night. The standard package is designed so each guest will enjoy three days of fly fishing, and three days of non-angling activities of their choice.

Day 7: Departure Day

Check-out of the lodge is at 11:00 AM. After check-out, you will be driven back to Punta Arenas to catch a flight home or on to your next adventure.

Lodging

Remota sets the highest standards for service and comfort. The striking building sits on a grassy hillside overlooking the water near Puerto Natales, just 45 minutes south of Torres del Paine National Park. It is a perfect base to explore Torres del Paine: close enough for day trips but with better access to the fjords and lesser-known mountains along the coast. This Chile adventure lodge's design provides magnificent views everywhere, although the reason for going is the outdoors. Chilean architect German del Sol has created a stylish basecamp in Patagonia that is also a comfortable refuge from the elements. Guests can choose from rooms with two queen or one king bed, and all rooms have a spacious bathroom with all the amenities of home.

Fishing & Activities

THE FISHING

The southern region of Patagonia offers an impressive diversity of water types. Fish small spring creeks that you can literally step across, large lakes that you’ll float in a raft, and rivers of all sizes in between. Where you fish on any given day will ultimately depend on the fishing conditions and your individual preferences. You will target brown trout in all these different types of water, and there is the possibility of catching brook and rainbow trout as well. Each day you fish, you will head out from the lodge with your guide after breakfast. Depending on where you fish, you will drive anywhere from a few minutes to about an hour and a half to get to the water. Once there, you will fish until lunch. For lunch, enjoy a great meal stream-side complete with Chilean wine or beer if you like. After lunch, continue to fish, typically until 5 or 6 PM, then head back to the lodge to join the rest of the group for dinner. All of the guides are bilingual and experienced with anglers of all abilities. Whether you are looking to try your hand at trout fishing for the first time—or looking to improve your skills and learn some secrets from some of the best guides in Patagonia—the guides at Remota are sure to lead you on the adventure of a lifetime.

NON-ANGLING ACTIVITIES

Remota’s staff have carefully curated an impressive list of activities to showcase the best that Patagonia has to offer. You can kayak fjords, hike world-famous peaks, horseback ride through the pampas of southern Chile, and mountain bike around glacial lakes, to name a few. Only 40-minutes from the entrance to Torres del Paine National Park, Remota is the perfect jumping-off point for excursions inside the park or in the area around Puerto Natales.

This trip includes your choice of activities from either the Soft Program or Adventure Program. The Soft Program offers less physically demanding activities that will still take you via boat, bike, or on foot to see inspiring views. The Adventure Program is for those looking for a bit more of a challenge with longer and more challenging hikes, rock climbing, kayaking through glaciers, and more!

Throughout the list of excursions offered, there are half-day as well as full-day options for almost every type of activity. There is a maximum of eight guests per trip. Lunches will be packed and served by your guide on all full-day excursions.
