Estancia Mamuil Malal is located at the base of the Lanin Volcano on the south bank of the Malleo River. The owners, Bertil and Dolores Grahn, offer their home as a casual, original and genuine homestead. Mamuil Malal takes a maximum of eight anglers in four double rooms with private baths. The lodge consists of a ground floor with a classic English-style country living room, bar and dining area. Guest rooms are distributed throughout the second level and the owners occupy the third floor. The Grahns serve home cooked meals and take pride in local and traditional dishes that are both hearty and delicious.
Staying at Estancia Mamuil Malal is a unique experience providing an unparalleled opportunity to fish the best of the Malleo River with a short five to ten-minute drive. A true gem of the Mamuil Experience is having exclusive access to the creek that runs through their property. This stretch of water provides easy walk wading for nonstop dry fly action and one of the best views in all of Patagonia.
Some guests believe the lodge is too casual; others make Mamuil Malal part of their annual routine and return each year to fish the Malleo and enjoy Bertil and Dolores’ hospitality. The estancia and the Grahns are true treasures of the ranching world in Patagonia.
Not many outfitters take guests to this lodge, not because the lodge is unworthy, but because the Grahn family stays within a closed circle of friends. PRG north director, Alex Knull, has known the Grahns since he was a child. This relationship allows PRG north guests the opportunity to stay at this perfect location and feel very comfortable. Guests typically stay at Mamuil Malal for up to four nights then combine with a second estancia such as Estancia Quemquemtreu, Tres Lagos Lodge, Tres Rios Lodge or Arroyo Verde.
