Tipiliuke Lodge


Fishing and hunting Lodge

This huge Estancia (50,000 acres) belongs to the Larminat family. They settled here more than 120 years ago. Tipiliuke Lodge is located inside the Estancia, in the south shores of the medium reaches of the Chimehuin River, just below Junín de los Andes and within a 15 minutes’ drive from the airport.

From here, we can have access by private roads more than 10 miles of the Chimehuin River and 5 miles of the Quilquihue River.

The lodge is very comfortable and really high end. It can board up to 16 fishermen, and it offers plenty of extra activities for guests such as horseback riding, trekking, birding, massages, cooking lessons, and much more.

It has 9 bedrooms with private bathrooms, a big lounge and a well-stocked bar. There are plenty of couches and chair outside the property if you like to read under the shade of the trees or just to enjoy a drink by a fireplace.

The food service offers gourmet food, and if the weather allows it, outside lunches and Asados.

River Access

The Chimehuin river begins at Lago Heuchulaufquen. This place is known as the world famous "Mouth of the Chimehuin" or "Boca of the Chimehuin.”

Here is where the 25.5 lbs. Argentina's Brown Trout record with a Yellow Blonde streamer was caught, and with a dry fly (Black Caddis) another Brown of 15.7 lbs. Jose “Bebe” Anchorena owns both records.

It is a typical freestone river with lots of side channels and islands. It runs for approximately 34 miles before merging with the Collón Curá river. It starts off with fast water typical of high gradient rivers, rapidly changing into a medium gradient stream with moderate current and numerous pools, riffles and runs.

The stream beads are composed mostly of large gravel and boulders. It is a great river with a lot of variety of runs and pools, and you can catch browns and rainbows on dries, wets or nymphs.

Joyful and adventurous Patagonian journeys are something to remember
