You home on the banks of the Maullín River

Located on the banks of the Maullín River, jus 7 minutes from downtown Puerto Varas, the newly constructed lodge cabins comfortably accommodate up to 8 clients in a wilderness riverside setting.

Strategically located 7 kilometers downstream from the outflow of Llanquihue Lake, the lodge is the natural take out for the lop section float trip of the river. The Maullín River is the only river that drains Lake Llanquihue, flowing 90 kilometers to the Pacific Ocean. It is the spawning run river for Atlantic salmon. In addition the river has a large resident population of brown and rainbow trout.

At the end of the fishing day, you guide delivers you directly to the Wild River Chile Lodge. We will pull ashore right beside the “Quincho”, a typical Chilean dining area for meals and barbecues. Here you will enjoy a pisco sour, the traditional Chilean aperitif, and fine wines during your evening meals. The Quincho is located just a few yards away from your cabin. Each cabin consist of two bedrooms, bath, and covered deck.
