The House

The lodge is a mud-walled home that was originally built in 1941. Rather than tear it down, we decided to renovate the house to keep the original feel and historic atmosphere of the estancia.  Two nice rooms for single or double occupancy are in this main lodge.

We have also built a very large great room with a fireplace that has large windows that allow you to see the entire Corcovado valley during the day and the unbelievable starry nights as well. We have a fireplace that will crackle as you snuggle up in a comfortable chair, read a good book, tie flies or play a game of checkers. This large great room also has two rooms that are available for single or double occupancy.

We have just completed two new cabins as well.  Both cabins combined can sleep up to eight people.  They are both about 100 yards from the main lodge and each have spectacular views of the surrounding mountains.


If it's variety you want, the Estancia El Palenque offers every type of fishing, whether it be wading, dry or wet flys, spring creeks, freestone  rivers or still water lakes and ponds, rainbow, brown, brook trout, or king salmon. And all of this is available while staying at Estancia El Palenque, which is located in the heart of the Lake District, Patagonia's world-famous recreation area, and is within driving distance of other incredible fishing venues such as:

Nant y Fall River located about half way between Traveling and the Estancia.

Rio Pico and Cinco Lagos (Five Lakes) This area is unexplored and is a fun one-day excursion.

Lago Vintter is actually on the ranch and holds world record lake Brook trout.This lake is almost 20 miles long and extends in to Chile.

Lago Rosario is the lake that creates the Nant y Fall river.  It provides for fun lake fishing.

If you or your traveling companion decide not to fish, there is still plenty of fun to be had. Spectacular horseback riding, hiking, mountain biking, ATV four wheel tours*, bird watching and much more all add to this wonderful and serene experience. This is a true getaway and one you'll always remember. In fact, you'll probably be making plans to come back even before you leave!

Four-Wheelers can be rented for $100 per day and by signing a liability waiver.

Why Patagonia?

Visitors to the famous lake and river region of Patagonia, Argentina walk around with their mouths open, constantly muttering things like, "unbelievable," "awesome," "breathtaking" and just plain "wow."

And that's before they make their first cast. For over one hundred years, this place has been a well-kept secret. Just now being discovered, totally secluded and remarkably pristine, this area resembles British Columbia, Jackson Hole, Telluride and the Swiss Alps all rolled up in one.
