Estancia Huechahue lies 70 kms east of the picturesque town of San Martin de los Andes, on the Alumine and Collon Cura rivers. It is a 15,000 acre authentic working estancia. A pioneer in Argentine riding holidays, they also offer outstanding fishing in incredibly scenic country.
Guests at Huechahue can expect a rare traditional estancia experience.
The Estancia has two lodges with ten en suite rooms. There are four double bedrooms in the main house and a further six in two chalets nearby. The farm itself is almost completely self sufficient, producing its own organic meat, fruits, vegetables and energy, so guests can look forward to the freshest home cooked food.
Activities include trekking to ancient Indian burial caves and condor nests, rafting in inflatables down the Alumine River, and bird watching. The fly fishing is superb with five different rivers to fish, all with private access. However, it is the horse riding here that is a real highlight. There are excellent riding opportunities for novices and experienced riders alike.
