Last December I was fortunate enough to spend a couple of days at The Tunuman lodge in Colchagua
The owners, Will and Carolina are a charming couple, who welcome you as if you were part of the family. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean with lovely linen and fluffy towels.
Will and Carolina do all the cooking themselves and the food is good home cooked and certain to satisfy you after a days adventures. If you get the krill cakes, they are wonderful.
We went fly fishing, Will is an expert and knows the best spots. Within minutes he had hooked the first Rainbow trout of the session. Even novice first timers like myself, were hooking a few.
There are horse treks up mountains, ten meter waterfalls, where the brave, can jump into refreshing mountain water. There are also trips to thermal springs, and as the lodge is in one of the top ten wine regions in the world (according to Wine Enthusiast magazine) Wine tours can be arranged and fitted to each clients preferences. There are many of Chile’s top wineries within an hours drive.
We did a 6 hour horse trek up a mountain with an expert guide, a true Huaso de campo, born and raised within a few miles of the lodge. He was tough but friendly, and you knew you were in safe hands.
I can highly recommend this as a great place to get away for a few days and discover nature.
I left feeling I had made some new friends, and I will be going back
