General

Futa lodge is a renovated Chilean farmhouse, with spectacularly private and romantic setting were you will enjoy horseback guided fishing excursions.

The Futaleufu River is a tailwater that begins in nearby Argentina, but really gets its character when it enters Chile.  Futaleufu, meaning the “Big River” in native Tehuelche indian tongue, grows healthy stocks of Rainbow and Brown trout with occasional Sea Run species.

Spectacular diversity of fishing from float trips on the Futaleufú River to intimate tributaries and hidden lakes where trout may have never seen a fly. Uncluttered and relaxed pace at the lodge – no cars, engine noise or pollution, just pure mountain air – imagine the American West 150 years ago!
