Patagonian pampa in all its splendor and ancestral territory of the Tehuelche people, Villa La Tapera is located in the Cisnes River Valley. Founded in 1996, the town’s name is inspired by the rustic shelters built by cowboys on their journeys driving cattle. The town was originally part of the Río Cisnes Ranch, which was one of the 3 largest ranches in the area, founded in 1924 after a land grant around twenty years earlier.
Today, Villa La Tapera and its surroundings are a fly fisher’s paradise. The town is near the border, at the Apeleg Pass, and can be found at kilometer 55 (mile 34) along Route X-25. Its ancient trails are full of history and have long been traveled by Tehuelche people, explorers, cowboys, and adventurers.
