The Lodge

Collon Cura River

Collón Cura Lodge is a quaint, cozy lodge with a laid-back atmosphere and a flexible fishing program.

Collón Cura Lodge is centrally located on the banks of the Collón Cura River, in the middle of a 70,000 acre estancia owned by Ted Turner. The estancia provides exclusive access to the best spots for fly fishing for trout on this prolific river, flowing through a landscape of huge open vistas and expansive panoramas reminiscent of the American West.

The Collón Cura River features a unique and attractive landscape, meandering along willow-lined banks, sandstone cliffs, and rolling hillsides as it collects waters from many other well known Patagonia watersheds including the Aluminé, Chimehuín, Malleo, Quemquemtreu, and others. It is a perfectly-sized river for floating in drift boats or rafts, while wade opportunities abound as well. The aquatic ecosystem is robust; dry fly fishing, nymphs, and streamers are all productive for the profuse resident wild populations of big and healthy rainbow and brown trout, as well as Patagonian perch.

The very comfortable main lodge accommodates up to eight guests in four double rooms, each with its own private, en suite bathroom. There is a wonderful “great room”, popular for guests gathering after a fish-filled day on the water to share a drink, some hors d’oeuvres, and plenty of stories. A beautiful, separate dining room is a mere minute’s walk away, allowing for serene evening after-dinner strolls beneath the star-filled Patagonian sky. The dining at Collón Cura Lodge is an experience all its own, with classic Argentine cuisine complemented by fine local wines.
