Less than three hours’ drive from where the Cape Horn cruise embarks lies Remota Patagonia Lodge—and chance for sporting flyfishers to fish the clear mountain streams, rivers and lakes for the renowned wild brown trout of Patagonia. These fat, muscular, hard-fighting trout offer superlative fishing in pristine waters—but, even beyond fishing, the magic of the whole experience is unsurpassed. All who have read Bruce Chatwin’s great book ‘In Patagonia’ will know what this means.
Remota is not only about fishing—though it offers the cream of sport. This celebrated hotel designed by famous Chilean architect Germán del Sol is an intriguing escape set in spectacular scenery above Last Hope Sound. Here you can enjoy breathtaking views at every turn in a hotel flooded with light; floor-to-ceiling windows bring in vast views of sky, water and distant mountains. Bedrooms are generous, light-filled and fragrant with lenga wood; even the bathrooms have mind-blowing vistas. And as to the restaurant—Patagonian delicacies, Chilean wines and pisco sours are all included.
All these, and more, are reasons why Remota has become a mecca for viewing the real, unspoilt, wilderness of Patagonia: for exploring the natural and cultural highlights of one of the most beautiful parks in the Andes, Torres del Paine, and the valleys, mountains, lakes, glaciers, rivers and forests beyond. All this can be realised under the guidance of expert and knowledgeable ghillies and guides, travelling by vehicle (4×4), horse, bicycle, on foot—even sailing the fjords. If you want the real experience, yet with all the creature comforts and excellent food and wine, this is the place to be.
As to the fishing, Remota’s head guide, Fernando Cassanello, takes his fishers to seldom-fished private rivers and spring creeks, all presenting different sporting challenges. He knows where to find the biggest, most beautiful brown trout in all Patagonia, and he knows which flies will entice them. Said one recent flyfisher: ‘We have fished with many guides over the years, but this was far and away the best we have ever had. Fernando’s dedication and enthusiasm for the wonderful brown trout of Patagonia will guarantee the best flyfishing experience of your life!’
Tempted? It’s not surprising—especially as our Members enjoy advantageous rates at Remota—for flyfishing and for enjoying the wildlife and scenery in other ways.
