Trip Overview

The mighty Rio Baker is perhaps Chile’s most iconic and beautiful river. Well-known to fly fishers, kayakers and rafters which have floated its glacially-tinged waters for decades, the Baker received worldwide recognition in 2014 when an enormous civic action campaign saved the river from a massive dam and hydroelectric power project that would have destroyed the river’s raw, wild nature and untarnished ecosystem. Thanks to that campaign, today the Baker still flows free and wild. It beckons anglers from across the world to ply the river’s turquoise waters for trophy brown and rainbow trout which rise greedily to dry flies and voraciously attack streamers, all amongst one of the most scenic valleys in all of Patagonia.

Accommodations

The stunning Patagonia Baker Lodge, newly built in 2022, will welcome guests for the first time in October of 2023. Constructed of local hardwoods and river rock, the lodge sits directly on the shores of Rio Baker, offering expansive views—both from the lodge’s common areas and guest rooms—of the river and the Cordón Contreras mountain range which watches over the valley. As the newest in the Magic Waters family of Patagonian fishing lodges, the lodge is able to draw on the knowledge and experience of an expert team while offering anglers an entirely new experience.
