Take off on a Patagonian fly fishing adventure to remember. Enjoy specialized instruction in this most relaxing of activities, and explore the trout and salmon-rich rivers and lakes tucked into Torres del Paine National Park. Just an hour away from EcoCamp lie some of the region’s most pristine rivers, surrounded as if on a postcard by open plains and snow-capped peaks. This is a great addition to an adventure at Ecocamp.
Head out from EcoCamp by 4x4 to the source of Serrano River where your fly fishing adventure is about to begin! After arrival, your guides instruct you in the contemplative, yet skillful art of fishing. Let your worries fade away as you cast your line surrounded by the spectacular colors and contours of Torres del Paine.
Throughout the day the guides provide instruction and practical tips specific to you and for the fish you are after, the majestic Chinook Salmon. This princely fish’s numbers soar from December to February – but remember: it’s no small fry! Get ready to work hard to claim yours, as here in the National Park they can reach up to 60lbs! After seven to eight hours’ fishing on Serrano River, return to EcoCamp ready to settle in for the night with dinner and sharing fishing stories.
This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
