Aurelia is a gem on the Rio Grande. Not as well known as some of the lodges below, but a lodge that holds unique appeal that keeps you returning over consecutive years. A homely lodge environment where you feel part of the family. Fantastic guide team with the fishing being a rare treat, given the exclusive fishing on both banks.
Aurelia Lodge is not as well known as some of the bigger lodges downriver. However, overlooking this option would be a mistake. This is undoubtedly one of our favourites on the river and in Argentina as a whole.
The small, intimate lodge environment provides a homely and welcoming atmosphere. The team run a tight ship and are always around to help and make sure you have the best experience possible – this is highlighted in their return rate, with many choosing to make this their annual pilgrimage.
With just four to six rods per week and many miles of exclusive, double bank fishing on both the Rio Grande and Rio Menendez under Aurelia Lodge’s ownership, we’re confident you will enjoy this unique experience. This is the perfect option for intact groups.
Aurelia Lodge provides a unique experience given that it controls exclusive fishing access on both banks of the river, whereas all other lodges downstream rotate the fishing according to left / right bank ownership. Aurelia has exclusive access to around 8 miles of the Rio Grande and 15 miles of the Rio Menendez (both rivers offer easy wading, with the riverbed being mainly fine gravel), all to just four rods per week! It can also accommodate six rods, if the six are an intact group. Regardless, you are assured that the water is well rested with such low rod numbers.
Have an enjoyable day on the river and return to the comforts of the warm, welcoming lodge in the evening. The lodge is homely and has a real family feel; you never feel like the team are going through the motions or that you’re treated as just another number.
Cost of a week is just US$6,490 per angler based on four anglers or US$5,990 based on six. This includes single rooms as standard on the four-rod week along with fishing licence costs. When staying as a party of six, the rooms are configured as two twins and two singles. Fantastic value for money, especially given the exclusive nature of the fishing and the lodge. Aurelia is the perfect option for smaller, intact parties.
