Fly from the Comodoro Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport in Santiago to the El Tepual Airport in Puerto Montt, where a transfer will be waiting to take you to the Marcelo Marchant airdrome (La Paloma), where you will take a small plane to the Santa Bárbara airdrome just outside Chaiten.
At this airdrome, you will be met by Melimoyu Lodge staff who will drive you southbound along the Carretera Austral towards Hacienda Melimoyu. This scenic road trip will take approximately 3 hours, and you will be able to see extensive forests and pristine glaciers, as well as many lakes and rivers.
Upon arrival to the Melimoyu Lodge, you will receive a welcome cocktail and lunch and have some time to relax and recharge. Later this day you will get information on the dinner times and options,so that you can enjoy remarkable dishes made from locally-sourced ingredients, as well as our open bar. Depending on your arrival time to the Lodge, you may have some time in the afternoon to fish along the banks of the river near the Lodge.
Every night after dinner, the guests will sit down with the head guide to discuss the fishing excursions they would like to do the following day.
