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 will 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.
Our final stay will be the high desert mountain town of Mendoza where we have three nights and days of fun packed activities. Accommodations will be at the wonderful Park Hyatt overlooking the majestic Aconcagua Mountains that are second highest in the world. Our first full day in Mendoza will be a guided trip into the nearby area of Lujan de Cuyo to visit some wineries of one of the most important wine regions in Mendoza including the famous Catena Zapata Vineyard and the splendid Benegas Winery for wine tours and special tastings. We will enjoy a 5 course wine-paired lunch at Largarde Winery consisting of delicious courses with gran reserve & icon wines. The second full day is saved for a unique cooking class at Finca Agostino Winery. The class begins at the winery’s organic vegetable garden, where the raw materials are harvested. The class also includes the elaboration of bread, empanadas and other typical Argentinean dishes followed by enjoying all of this with a private meal. Our last day is reserved for you and your partner to walk the city and shop or just soak in the culture. Each evening we will enjoy unique restaurants in the city of Mendoza and sipping into the night.
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. In fact the property at Guayascate is actually full of these Piquillin roosts making drives to the fields a matter of minutes in most cases. Unless you request it, you will not shoot the same field twice. Hunting season is year round and we are offering three and four day hunts.
The Alvear Palace, Guayascate, and Mendoza 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.
