The crystalline River Puelo flows from Chubut province, Argentina, winding through a glacial valley and finally reaching the Reloncaví Estuary. The town of Puelo can be found alongside the river that shares its name. It features beautiful views of the Yates Volcano and is an ideal destination for travelers who enjoy fishing for sport. The fishing season runs from September to May each year––one of the longest seasons in Chile.
These pristine landscapes of unmatched beauty are also a perfect place for trekking, climbing, horseback riding, kayaking, and birdwatching.
