It is an enchanted city, not open to any ordinary traveler to discover (…) only at the end of time will the city become visible; to convince unbelievers of its existence … The Myths of Chiloé island ~ oral tradition

Recreation & Adventures
The environment of Fundo Valle de Los Césares is an ideal fly fishing local. The Vodudahue and Barceló rivers are renowned for rainbow and brown trout, as well as Chinook salmon during the spawning season. In addition to fly fishing, the property is ideal for sea kayaking, trekking and horseback riding. Numerous trails surround that property and they traverse both rivers and mountains providing world class wilderness sight seeing experiences. Unique to the property are some of the last world’s last remaining stands of the giant and endangered Alerce tree (Fitzroya cupressoides), South America’s cousin to the North American Sequoia and Redwood.
The Fundo is located in the renowned valley of the Vodudahue river and its 1206 acres are dotted with small areas of natural grasslands and native old growth forest. The Vodudahue and Barceló rivers serve as natural property boundaries. High granite mountains provide shelter for the native Valdivian temperate rain forest, which serves as home for tree species such as alerce, ulmo, coigue, manio, lumas and myrtles. These forests serve as a refuge for rare and endangered fauna. The puma and the kodkod represent the felines of the forest, while near the rivers and lakes the kingfishers stalk trout and high above the canopy the Andean condor patrols the mountains.
