Hi! How far away from Balmecada airport and/or Coyhaique is your lodge? Is a car necessary? We will be coming from Trouter's Patagonia Lodge on February 28 and will be flying to Punta Arenas on March 4 from Balmecad Airport. We want to stay 4 nights and have the option of cooking our own meals if possible. Thank you Kathy Melton

Helfrich River Outfitters is located in Springfield Oregon USA and have no locations outside the US. I think you have the wrong outfitter.
