Fishing packages include SIX nights of lodging and FIVE days of fishing, arriving to the lodge on Sunday and departing on Saturday. (Most travelers from the USA departing on the Saturday preceding and arriving home the following Sunday).
Anglers first travel to Santiago, Chile (SCL) via direct overnight flight (9 hours from DFW) from several U.S. cities including Miami, Houston, New York, and Dallas/Ft. Worth international airports. After an early morning arrival the next day, travelers connect on to Balmaceda Airport in southern Chile with Lan Chile Airlines or Sky Airlines on a three-hour flight, sometimes with one brief stop in Puerto Montt en route. Upon arrival into Balmaceda around 4:00PM, guests are met at the airport by NIC FIN PATAGONIA ADVENTURES and transferred approximately 1 hour forty-five minutes to our very own Tamango Lake Lodge in the Cerro Castillo National Park.
Many guests prefer to overnight in Santiago on the way down to relax after the long plane ride and see the city. Another option is to push southward to the town of Puerto Montt halfway between Santiago and Balmaceda. The nearby port town of Puerto Varas is a very pleasant and affordable venue to get over jet-lag and hang out before making the onward one- hour flight to Balmaceda the next day.
