Valle del Carrileufu Lodge
Situated just north of Los Alerces National Park, in one of Patagonia’s most picturesque valleys, Valle del Carrileufu Lodge is ideally located close to fabulous fisheries such as the Rivadavia, Arrayanes, Carrileufu, and Chubut, as well as numerous spring creeks and lagoons. It's a beautiful place, with wide open views to the dramatic peaks of the Andes, dominated by the lovely Cerro tres Picos.
This small, intimate lodge is a true taste of authentic patagonia, and a natural extension of the high standards that we set for customer service in the El Encuentro Experience. Warm, caring, and gracious, the staff at Valle del Carrileufu Lodge are an extension of the El Encuentro Family, and we know you will feel right at home with their well-appointed accommodations, and thoughtfully prepared meals.
Fishing at Valle del Carrileufu Lodge
Our guides have fished the tremendous waters in this area for many years, and their experience with these fisheries is second to none. Staying at Valle del Carrileufu Lodge allows us to share this special place with you, and avoid the long drive (2+ hours each way) necessary from the El Encuentro Lodge. This gives us more time and flexibility to plan our days around the best fishing at the best times.
The months of November and December are prime time in the Carrileufu valley and Los Alerces National Park. Water conditions in the area’s rivers and lakes are ideal, fish feed eagerly after a long Patagonia winter, and early season hatches of mayflies, caddis flies, and dragonflies are exceptional.
A stay at Valle del Carrileufu Lodge fits perfectly into our standard 7-night itinerary with a visit to either the El Encuentro Lodge or Brook Trout Basecamp, or you could choose to incorporate all three of these amazing properties into a 10-night itinerary.
