What we'll do?
Welcome to the southernmost heli-fishing experience in the world.
For those that love fly fishing, having the chance to fish in such a remote and rarely visited area containing many lakes and rivers teaming with large wild trout is a very attractive opportunity and only a dream for most fly fishermen. We invites you to make this dream a reality and come to the southernmost area of the planet and challenge your skills fly fishing for large Brown Trout, Brook Trout, Rainbow Trout and Sea Run Brown Trout. The heart of the last frontier is only a short helicopter flight from the lodge. You will fly to some of the most remote rivers, lakes and lagoons in the world. The varying types of water available present the fisherman with an interesting array of fishing options.More...
