Overview

Estancia Huechahue is a family owned working cattle ranch located in Northern Patagonia, Argentina. Easily reached from San Carlos de Bariloche and San Martin de los Andes in the Lake District, Huechahue is a perfect addition to your Patagonian itinerary. Come to horseback ride, fly fish, take cooking classes, golf, or just to relax at a traditional Estancia.As a working cattle ranch, Huechahue is a wonderful place to experience traditional estancia life. About 900 head of Hereford cattle and 80 horses are spread over 15,000 acres. Traditional Argentine cowboys, or gaucho’s, roam the ranch, tending to the animals and joining guests on rides and cattle drives.The farm itself is virtually self-sufficient. Water is drawn from an aquifer and electricity from a turbine. Much of the food served at Huechahue comes from the surrounding land. We offer a B&B option of hotel room with breakfast included. Lunch and dinner are optional and paid for separately. We would be happy to help you plan your activities while you are here. Other guests like an all-inclusive package which includes activities like horseback riding or fly fishing. Guests can be assured of excellent services and a warm welcome. The atmosphere at Huechahue is relaxing and genial. Eight guest cabins are spread out through the orchard, a short stroll from the main lodge. Guests gather in the dining room for meals, or the large "quincho" for asados and grill outs over an open fire. We hope to see you soon!

We stayed four nights at the estancia and managed to fit in three big horse rides and a day's fly fishing. During this time we didn't see another human being - only condors, eagles, vultures, deer, wild boar, llamas (and trout). The scenery was breathtaking...More

We didn't experience any of the issues in MurrayMantis's review: the estancia was newly redecorated, though, so maybe Jane had made sure those criticisms were addressed. For our tastes, it was perfect. We stayed in a swankier fishing estancia later in the week, but it...More
