"Our stay at Remota was the highlight of our family vacation in Patagonia. We arrived early morning (early for Chile, anyway) and were led to the dining room for a consultation with Fernando, head of guides and excursions. In short order, a plan was set for a day of fishing for me and mountain bike trip and horseback ride for my wife and daughter. After glorious and productive day of fishing, including the biggest brown I’ve ever landed on a fly rod, my family met up for an incredible gourmet dinner where we swapped stories and viewed pictures of each other’s day of adventures. That first day felt like three vacation days in one, yet it turned out to be one of the most restful and restorative as well. It was pure vacation magic. Remota is a great way to experience the best Patagonia has to offer."

Additional Thoughts:I will provide separate feedback on Remota itself - it clearly cannot cope with the a full house and both service in the hotel and the meals suffered significantly as a result
"My wife and I spent a total of 6 days at Remota, with 3 full days of fly fishing with head guide, Fernando Cassanello. Fernando has developed a World-class fly fishing program that Remota should be immensely proud of. He has identified a diversity of fabulous locations near Puerto Natales, some on rarely fished private rivers and spring creeks, and all presenting different fly-fishing challenges. To top it all off, he knows the whereabouts of some of the biggest, most beautiful brown trout in all of Patagonia, and he knows what flies will entice them! We have fished with many guides over the years, but this experience was far and away the best we have ever had. Fernando's dedication and infectious enthusiasm for the wonderful brown trout of Patagonia will guarantee the best fly fishing experience of your life. We're already planning our next trip!"

"We spent a week at Remota over Christmas with their Fly Fishing Program and it was an outstanding experience. 5-Star fun. Fernando and his crew were a complete delight. Professional and fun. Fernando knew exactly where to take us each day to maximize the best fishing and sites. Lots of fish everyday as well as being the perfect tour guides on the hours we spent sight-seeing. The crew spent their Christmas Day with us laying out a wonderful meal at Torres del Paines. So beautiful. The food everyday in the hotel for breakfast and dinner was superb. The wait staff - perfect. The on-the-road lunch spreads were incredible. Salads, BBQ's, Pisco Sours, and on and on. We will definitely go back."

"I would highly recommend Fernando and his team from Remota. We had the best 3-1/2 days of fishing. Everything from Sea run browns to Spring fed creek fishing. The size and quantity of fish we caught was incredible. The hotel Remota was 5 stars on food and lodging."
