"A float boat trip with a riverside camp is a special experience  close to nature"


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.


SouthernLoops Fly Fishing

After many years of experience in Fly Fishing, we decided to turn our passion into a lifestyle. 

More than fourteen years fishing around the globe, hiring many fly fishing guide service, as well as six years working as guides for major fly fishing travel serviceproviders in Patagonia Argentina, have provided us with an understanding of what people needs when searching to go on a guided fly fishing trip or vacations and how valuable their time is to be wasted on the wrong destination or service. 

That's how we decided to start SouthernLoops, a young fly fishing travel service company based in San Martin de los Andes, Patagonia Argentina, engaged in offering tailor made fly fishing service in Northern Patagonia Argentina. Our activities are carried out in the best and world renowned trout waters in Northern Patagonia. 

We have a group of highly qualified, full-time, duly certified fly fishing guides who work under licenses granted by the province of Neuquén and the Lanin National Park; they are bilingual residents of Northern Patagonia. 

Let us share our passion for fly fishing with you. We will help you plan your trip by customizing every detail based on your preferences and we will ensure that you have a trip just like the one you dreamed of.
