The fishing program is varied and covers an extensive area and diverse environments. Some days guests may begin fishing at the door-step and others they may travel further afield in 4WD vehicles. The program is weather dependent. El Saltamontes guides know the area and conditions intimately and will tailor a plan for guests each day, according to the weather, fish activity and guest abilities and preferences. Alternative Activities Horse riding is available, with a selection of mounts (Chilean mountain ponies, Arabs and European breeds) and tack to suit the novice rider or experienced equestrian. Excursions will be tailored to suit guests. Local visits can be arranged to the humble homes of rural neighbors, involved in the spinning and weaving of alpaca fiber products. Hiking opportunities vary from gentle to extreme. Non-angling companions are very welcome.
