SAN MARTIN DE LOS ANDES
"Finish your daily float boat trip enjoying a comfortable rest with all the benefits and flexibility that come with being lodged in the heart of our home town."
Founded on February 4, 1898, San Martin de los Andes, a typical mountain village with charming architecture, has more than 35,000 inhabitants and is located on the eastern headwaters of Lacar Lake, south of the province of Neuquén.
Since its beginnings, San Martín de los Andes main economic activities were trade and lumber-related businesses. From the creation of Lanin National Park in 1937, with administrative headquarters in San Martín, timber harvesting for commercial purposes started to decrease, giving way to tourism, which is now the city's main economic resource.
Surrounded by vast forests and deep glacial lakes, San Martin de los Andes is the head of the famous 7 lakes circuit, it is part of the world-famous Route 40 and is the home to one of the major ski resorts in Patagonia Argentina, Cerro Chapelco. These features make it the major tourist center in the province of Neuquén.

DAILY FLOAT TRIPS
"Enjoy a full fly fishing day casting the fly on board of comfortable inflatable rafts; accessing areas of the river that would otherwise be out of reach."
We carried out our float trip programs fishing on board of comfortable inflatable rafts and catarrafts, with one fly fishing guide per two anglers.
Our fly fishing guide service in North Patagonia let you choose between half-day and full-day programs through the best river sections, which are internationally renowned for fly fishing, such as Chimehuín, Alumine, Collon Cura y Limay Medio (Middle Limay), among others.
Our daily fly fishing float trips provide customers an opportunity to fish throughout vast extensions of water on the same day, accessing areas which have less fishing preasure and would otherwise be out of reach. Likewise, you will cast comfortably into places where it would be impossible to go in wading.
