Hosteria San Huberto, located near Junín de los Andes, is hosted by Carmen Olsen who ensures that this lodge runs like a well-oiled machine. Anglers’ privacy is well protected since San Huberto Lodge is located in the center of the 22,000 acre, family owned, Tres Picos Ranch. As a result there are few places that are more restful or peaceful anywhere
The Hosteria San Huberto offers six guest rooms with twin beds and each room with private en-suite bathroom. Each meal is five-star quality, and starts with vegetables and herbs grown right outside the back door of the kitchen. In addition to this, the schedule for all meals and services is very flexible, based upon the best angling times. The comfortable bar area is the perfect destination to share angling stories from your day on the Malleo over a glass of Argentine Malbec. This legendary lodge has a clientele of dry fly fanatics who visit regularly, so you will want to reserve well in advance, knowing the season runs from November to May.
After arriving in Buenos Aires by overnight international flight from the U.S., commercial flights from Buenos Aires to San Martin de los Andes (Chapelco) airport can be taken. Once in Chapelco Airport, you will be picked up and transferred to the lodge. A passport that is valid for a minimum of six months after the last day of your trip is required
The Malleo produces some of the best and most consistent caddis, mayfly and midge fishing anywhere in the world. This medium sized river is the perfect size for the wading angler. For the experienced angler, sight fishing on the Malleo proves to be the ultimate test using dry flies or small nymphs on fine tippets to rising or showing fish. An Angler’s Paradise! The Malleo river offers fly fishermen sight fishing along the 20 mile stretch that flows inside the ranch. From the verdant meadow section with the Lanin Volcano cone as a backdrop to the lower section, where you’ll find pocket water, small boulders and willow-lined banks, the Malleo is a delight to fish. The Professional guides are very familiar with the Malleo, so that less experienced anglers can cast comfortably and can catch trout successfully — and be better anglers for it. This is a must-see for the dry fly purist as this river boasts an abundance of hatches throughout the season. (November through May)
Most visitors are here to fish, so that is the main activity. However, at an additional cost, hiking in the Lanin National Park or horseback riding within San Huberto lands may be arranged.
