Luis Antùnes and his staff gave us a feeling like at home - it`s so hard to leave. They are always ready to assist you in any situation or answer your questions.
The lodge and the service were more than excellent. The rooms of the lodge, the look-out to Coyhaique and the surroundings are great. We enjoyed the trips to the lakes even we are no fishing persons. The landscape here is wonderful. A wonderful place for fishing but also for enjoying the landscape and the people around.
Luis opened our heart for the Chilean way of life.
Thank you Luis for your all

- Salmo Patagonia Lodge is located in the heart of Patagonia - Chile, about six miles from Coyhaique. Set atop a high mountain plateau alongside a National Park you can watch the majestic mountains and the river valleys from the Lodge's windows, or dream away at the fire-place. Experience luxury, adventure, and the beauty of unspoiled nature at this 5-star lodge. World renowned fly fishing angler Luis Antunez owns and operates the Salmo Patagonia Lodge and delights in sharing his expertise and love of the Patagonian outdoors. He and his wife Lourdes serve as guides and enthusiastic hosts for guests of all skill levels and interests. At Salmo, not even the sky is the limit - heli-fishing trips offer new and exciting experiences for even the most experienced anglers. Luis and his staff take advantage of their +25 years of experience and the +20,000 acres of land at their disposal to make each visit unique and unforgettable. Each party receives the personalized, undivided attention of Luis and Lourdes, who ensure that guests have everything they need from the moment they arrive. The Lodge itself has all the comforts of home and more - luxurious showers, a sauna, over 600 bottles of wine, and home cooked meals made with fresh ingredients, many of which come straight from the garden. Located on one of the highest plateaus in the area, the Salmo Patagonia Lodge offers a breathtaking view of the Simpson River and the valley below. While Salmo specializes in offering world-class fly fishing excursions, there are plenty of activities available for non-angler guests. Cooking lessons from Lourdes give everyone the chance to learn about wine pairing and her unique combination of Chilean and 'Old World' Spanish cuisine. Horseback riding, hiking, and canoeing trips are just a few of the ways that Salmo encourages exploration and discovery of the beautifully rugged Chilean landscape. From the back of an ATV or through the lens of a camera, delve into the natural wonders of the Patagonian outdoors and experience one of the last frontiers on earth. ... more less
