Value for money:

The original and, according to many, still the finest fishing lodge in Tierra del Fuego. Combining elegant and comfortable accommodations in a stunning setting with some of the most incredible sea trout fishing available, this place, run by the Carreras family, is a class act among Argentina’s fly-fishing lodges. It also holds the distinction of being the southernmost fishing lodge in the world.

The fishing

The season runs from December to April, and the fishing is red-hot all through that period. By electing to stay at Kau Tapen, you instantly gain access to the best and most-productive areas on the Rio Grande, as well as the people who pioneered fishing in the region. Fernando and Jorge de las Carreras established this lodge (the first in the region) and laid the foundations for the catch & release fishing programme in this special place – 10lb sea run trout are the average and fish over 30lb are caught every year.

The facilities

One of the Nervous Waters portfolio of lodges, Kau Tapen has become a byword for excellence in the field of fly-fishing lodges. Boasting nine spacious guest rooms, upscale living and bar areas, and other superb amenities including massage, sauna and a steam room, and drying rooms for wet gear, this lodge has it all going on. The in-house chef has a reputation for excellent food.
