Trek has brought the Argentina dove hunting couples trip back by popular demand and it may be the best one we have ever designed. This 12 day and 11 night trip will have us spending two days in the beautiful city of Buenos Aires, referred to often as the “Paris of South America”. Along with the incredible sights and sounds of this magnificent city, we will enjoy a city tour and an evening tango show with dinner. Our headquarters will be the Alvear Palace Hotel in the heart of the Recoleta District, known in town as ‘the’ place to stay.
After our stay in Buenos Aires, we will take a short flight north to Cordoba and a visit to Guayascate Lodge, the best wingshooting lodge/resort in South America. Those who wish to hunt will have three exciting days of high volume dove shooting, while the non hunters can enjoy horseback riding, tour of Villa Maria, or just relaxing at the spa with a massage. All meals are prepared by a professional chef and the service is top notch. The stay here will also include a sampling of Guayascate’s finest wines. If you and/or your spouse are interested in Argentina dove hunting on your trip, Guayascate is the best option.
Resting in the foothills of Argentina’s Andes Mountain Range, Mendoza has a rich gastronomic heritage, and produces some of Argentina’s most exceptional wines and olive oil. The city also boasts a number of historic attractions, most notably the Museo Fundacional which displays the town’s progress through human evolution, and the Museo Historico General San Martin which honours Jose de San Martin, the general who liberated Argentina from the Spanish. With a centrally located hotel, it’s easy to explore this great walking city. We will tour and taste our way through some of the top wineries in the area and enjoy a hands-on cooking experience to immerse yourself in true Argentine cuisine.
It is estimated that there are over 35 million eared dove in the Cordoba Province and climbing. Due to it’s rich agriculture and lack of natural predators, the dove here are actually a pest to the farmers and the general populace so hunters are a welcome sight to the region. It is doubtful you will ever encounter so many dove in a single moment, hour or day than what you will see here in the Piquillin trees where the eared dove roosts.
The Alvear Palace, Guayascate, and the Park Hyatt are the most deluxe accommodations in each destination and handpicked just for this trip. You can expect the best service, meals and locations at each property.
