Established in 1994, "La Posada de los Farios" is located in Chilean Patagonia. Just 2 hours north of the city of Coyhaique, and situated on a peaceful working, cattle ranch overlooking the beautiful Rio Cisnes (Swan River). Widely recognized among the finest brown trout fly fishing streams in the region. Remote and separated from other lodges and outfitters, with a wide variety of productive and unspoiled trout waters in range. All within a reasonable distance of the local airport of Balmaceda (no charter flights needed). Making it perhaps the very best location in all of Chile. The fishing is primarily for wild, aggressive resident Brown Trout, hence the name: Los Farios, "Fario" being the name used in Chile for Brown Trout. We still catch Rainbow Trout and Pacific Salmon are also available.
The scenery from the lodge is spectacular and the fishing options are abundant. The lodge itself is the original historic 60 year-old ranch house, modified to comfortably handle a maximum of just 6 guests per week. We strive to maintain a relaxed, down-home atmosphere around the lodge, with delicious meals served family style, always complimented by fine Chilean wines, freshly baked bread and organic vegetables from neighboring subsistence farms.
During your fishing day an abundant picnic lunch will be prepared streamside by your guide and a steaming wood-fired hot tub and a frosty mug of beer will await you at the end of your fishing day.
