Patagonia Fins and Cordoba Feathers
This has fast become one of our best selling trips as there is now a nonstop flight connecting those beautiful rainbow trout in Patagonia with the high-volume dove shoots from our deluxe lodges in Cordoba. While available dates are limited in January-April, we have some excellent space in December and for great value. Check it out!
Your journey starts with your arrival into Buenos Aires where you will transfer a connecting flight to San Martin de los Andes and a 45-minute drive to San Huberto where you will fish two half days and two full days. After your three days of trout fishing, you will then board the non-stop flight from Bariloche to Cordoba where you will be met and transferred to one of our three deluxe lodges for two and half days of super high volume dove shooting.
Depending on availability we’ll likely fish from Estancia San Huberto where the waters on property and the surrounding areas are famous for rainbow and brown trout. Well known guides from our associates Safaris Especiales will put you in a variety of waters like the Malleo, Chimehuin and Collon Cura. Whether you wish to wade, float or a combination of both, you will see great action all within 45 minutes to an hour from the lodge.
Few places in the wingshooting world defy imagination; Cordoba is one of them as the sky is full of eared dove sun up to sundown. You will hunt over fields, passing shots from roosts and from beautifully built blinds. The day is separated by a delicious Asado lunch that is famous in Argentina. Shell counts here number daily in thousands so the timid need not apply!
San Huberto is one of the finest, traditional trout estancias in Patagonia with stunning views of the Lanin Volcano and Malleo River that flows through its 40,000 acres in the foothills of the Andes. Our three Cordoba lodges, La Portenita, Sierra Verde and Rio Seco have all been upgraded substantially the last two years including spas, fire pits, new décor, bedding and wines. Both destinations feature fantastic cuisine and a level of service that is second to none.
