A trip to Argentina is not complete unless you spend some time in the “city that never sleeps”. Our itinerary calls for two days in B.A. using the iconic Alvear Palace as headquarters, we have arranged for a short city tour including sights such as the Plaza de Mayo in the historic heart of Buenos Aires and surrounded by some of the oldest and most important buildings; the Casa Rosada (Pink House), where the government’s executive branch is housed, the historical Cabildo and the Metropolitan Cathedral, where lies the remains of General José de San Martín. Dinner this evening will be at Sotto Voce. A separate guided tour of the famous Opera House will also take place followed by lunch and shopping excursion in the upscale district of Recoleta as well as a visit to Eva Peron’s gravesite. Our final evening takes in a wonderful Tango Show and dinner at Rojo Tango located in the popular Puerto Madero Waterfront District.
Guayascate Lodge is not just any hunting lodge; it’s more of a small resort and so well thought of that Beretta gave it the only 3-Trident rating in South America. Our four nights here will include three days of shooting for eared dove in the Piquillin trees that surround the property near the small town of its namesake. It is doubtful you will ever see more dove in the sky than what is offered on this trip. Don’t like to hunt… no problem as Guayascate oozes relaxation. Order a massage, soak in the indoor-outdoor Jacuzzi, enjoy a facial and pedicure, or just pick a quiet spot among the 19,000 square feet and read your favorite book. The wine cellar is a great place to take in appetizers, your favorite Malbec and doubles as a cigar room after hours. Scrumptious gourmet meals are carefully planned by Chef Daniel Quivan and accompanied by fine wines.
The city of Salta, located in Argentina’s northwestern province bearing the same name, has climbed the latter as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Argentina. Visitors are attracted to the colonial architecture, such as Convento San Bernardo, the San Francisco Church with South America’s tallest bell tower, and the Cabildo (city hall). This is truly a city where you can immerse yourself in the Argentine culture. Our time in Salta is spent on the first day enjoying a city tour, visiting museums and overnighting at the Legado Mitico Hotel. The second day we take a drive from Salta to Cachi crossing the Cuesta del Obispo where you will have lunch at La Merced Del Alto. After lunch, planned visits will take us through a few small towns in the area including Cachi, Molinos, and Cafayate. Each of these towns have their own special touch, whether it be seeing the prettiest chapels in the valley or enjoying one of villages famous wine cellars. This evening we will overnight at the Grace Hotel in Cafayate. The next day is reserved for wine-touring starting with a visit to El Provenir Winery followed by El Esteco Winery where a tasting and paired lunch is planned. Our last day in Cafayate, the group will transfer back to Salta for your departure flight home.
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 Grace Hotel Cafayate 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.
