Lago Bravo is a truly unique property. It includes its own private lake and provides unmatched peace and privacy in a spectacular natural setting characterized by dense lenga forests and natural pastures, all in the wilds of Patagonia, in the Andes foothills and only 110 km (68 miles) north of Coyhaique, the gateway to Chile's XI Region.
The possibilities that the estate provides are quite uncommon. You will be able to enjoy not only the recreational activities a private lake provides, but also deer stalking in the winter, given the red deer population present on the property and its surroundings. Come fall, the forests offer an explosion of brilliant colour.
The area where the property is located is a naturalist's heaven. Pumas, Andean foxes, wildcats and mountain hares all roam the forests and surrounding hills, and more than 115 species of birds have been recorded. Wander quietly in the woods, and you may spot the scarlet head of a Magellanic woodpecker or the diminutive form of an Austral pygmy owl. Out on the steppe, you can find rheas, South America's ostriches, or spot condors soaring high above on the thermals.
For avid anglers, there is a wide spectrum of possibilities nearby: incredible brown trout from 1 to 5 kgs (2 to 11 lbs) on Lago Los Juncos, salmon up to 20 kgs (44 lbs) on Río Manihuales, excellent browns on Río Nirehuao and Río Norte, browns and rainbows on Lago Misterioso, plus an endless array of fishable waters for every weather and wind condition.
Total area: 2,800 ha (6,918 acres)
Location: 110 km (68 miles) northeast of Coyhaique, XI Region, Chile, along paved and gravel roads.
How to get there: Fly to Santiago de Chile and connect onto one of 3 daily and regular flights to Balmaceda Airport (2+ hours on direct option). 160 km (100 miles) by road from there.
