Frontiers International Travel is announcing a 17-day “River of Dreams” backcountry fly fishing program in the Chilean Patagonia. It is a remote backcountry excursion on estancias and rivers rarely if ever fished before.

Accommodations are at Magic Waters Lodge and in heated backcountry WeatherPort tents situated off the ground on permanent wood frames, each with a dry porch overlooking the Blanco River and just a roll cast from major spring creeks. Meals are family-style in the main dining tent or around the fire pit. A heated and spacious shower house rounds out the camp footprint. Large water is accessed via jet-motorized catarafts, while miles of remote spring creek and mountain streams can be used for walk-and-wade exploration.

Departure dates are available in March/April and November/December 2019 and prices start at $12,000 per person based on shared room and fishing guide. Note: Shorter packages are available, as well.
