Rio Baker

Discovering the Tranquil Setting

Situated 3 km south of the picturesque fishing village, Puerto Bertrand, The Green Baker Lodge stands proudly on the banks of the renowned Rio Baker. This exclusive lodge, the only one along this pristine river, boasts seven fully equipped cabañas, ensuring guests a comfortable and relaxing stay. The Rio Baker owes its turquoise-blue hue to its origins from glacial lake Lago General Carrera. Fed by the waters of Lago Bertrand, this river offers exceptional living conditions for trouts. Here, amidst the tranquility, the trouts grow to dreamlike sizes, making it a haven for fly fishing enthusiasts.

Enjoy its incomparable surroundings to become the protagonist of one of the most challenging and productive fisheries in Patagonia.
