Travel Observations and Arrival Information
To get to Los Torreones Lodge you need to make flight arrangements to From Santiago, Chile (SCL) to Balmaceda, Chile (BBA) Usually our clientele fly on www.lan.com airlines.
Direct flights from Santiago run regularly, though it is wise to get your booking well in advance, that where we can help you out.
At the Balmaceda airport you will be met by lodge staff .It´s small airport and easy to find each other, but of course we’ll have a sign with your name on it. We first drive 40 minutes into Coyhaique, and stop to get your fishing Licenses a cup of coffee, and slowly edge into the Patagon Life style. Then we drive another 40 minutes through the Simpson Valley out to the Lodge. Departure Information: On your departure day you will be driven back to Balmaceda airport by a member of our staff.
Travel Recommendations in Chile Documentation Requirements
You will need a valid passport to enter Chile! Please make sure your passport is valid for six months after the last day of your trip. No visa is needed for US citizens travelling to Chile.
Currency: Basically not needed. At the lodge dollars are accepted at current exchange rate for gratuities, artwork, and any “extras”. Jack Trout will accept credit cards, but a 4% fee will be added for this:
Cash and Personal Checks are fine.
Travel Cash: Chile is highly wired for commercial ATM banking. While almost all restaurants and hotels take credit cards in Santiago some cash is needed for gratuities and souvenirs. As a rule of thumb count on approximately $750.00 – $1,000.00 (per week of travel /per person) for tips, handicrafts, and “extras”.
Gratuities: Our Guides and staff work long and hard over the short season and highly appreciate any gratuity! We suggest a minimum of 15% of your package rate per person per week. On your final morning at the Lodge we will add this gratuity to the final total bill and distributed appropriately.
Fishing Licenses: We can also arrange your Chilean fishing license for you online prior to your arrival in Chile. This saves a little time on your arrival day. Cost is approximately (US $75 per person). The fishing license is good for one year. This is not included in your package price and can be paid in US dollars/ cash when you arrive to Los Torreones. Please include with your booking the following information for us to get the license online: full name, DOB, address and passport number.
Weather: Dress for the four seasons in one day, is what I’ve been told. Layer up and bring a good gortex rain jacket and a fleece jacket for underneath, just in case. From hot and sunny (80°F+) to cool and rainy (40ºF) and the occasional blast of wind. Expect rain, sun, wind In short ANY condition. Once again, we recommend the layered approach.
Clothing: Think layered clothing appropriate for warm days and cool evenings. Casual travel oriented wear is the rule of thumb. Light Rain gear of course and wind breakers for trekking are appropriate. Light shoes for inside the lodge in the evening. For trekking or horse back riding good hiking shoes.
Medical Facilities: Please let us know if you have any special needs. It is the guest´s responsibility to disclose any special medical, physical, or diet requirements to the lodge ahead of time in order to for us to be as prepared as possible.. Safety first!
The lodge will make every effort to ensure your safety during your stay with us at Los Torreones Lodge; however, outdoor activities of this nature are not entirely ‘risk free.’ We highly recommend investing in travel insurance and/or medical evacuation coverage. The nearest full service hospital is in the regional capital of Coyhaique 45 minutes by car.
Please Note: Fly Fishing, Horse Back Riding, Rafting, Camping, Hunting, Trekking, and touring in Patagonia constitute outdoor activities which have a risk of personal injury.
Again, we encourage that our guests to get insurance that will cover such risks. Neither Los Torreones Lodge nor any of its associates shall be or become liable or responsible in any way in connection with any loss, injury or damage to or in respect to, any person or property howsoever caused or arising.
Due to adverse weather conditions that can happen even in the summer months in our region, certain activities may be modified, or canceled, especially if the Guide estimates that there is higher risk for an individual or for the group. It is understood that the client will in all cases follow explicitly the instructions of the Guide in regards to personal and group safety.
If canceled, we will do everything possible so the activities are substituted for others of a similar nature.
Power and Communications: In Chile we use 220-volt power so please remember to bring the rounded two prong adaptors to use during your stay.
Cell phones work at the lodge and Internet service is available but slow due to narrow bandwidth in the region. Telephone and more rapid internet services are available in Aysén and Coyhaique if required. We also offer bottled water at all meals should you require it.
Laundry: Laundry service is offered to all guests free of charge.
Water: Yes! You can drink the water! It´s terrific.
Beverages/Alcohol: The lodge provides beer, Pisco sours, wine (of course!We are in Chile). You are more than welcome to bring your own Duty Free scotch or whiskey available on your international flight down.

WHAT CLIENTS ARE SAYING ABOUT JACK TROUT AND THE LOS TORREONES LODGE ON TRIP ADVISOR
I was in Santiago and had some spare days. I wanted to go fishing in Patagonia so I contacted Jack.
Jack responded amazingly swift and arranged my trip in a snip. I had no gear or any idea on where I wanted to go but was very professionally guuded by Jack that set me up with the Team at Los Torreones Lodge.
These were the most fantastic days in my recent life time. Cozy Lodge, very friendly people and top professional fishing guides that introduced some fantastic scenery and great trout fishing. Jack was on line almost every day to ensure that everything was ok.
Thanks to Jack and the complete Team at Los Torreones.
