Enjoy outdoor life in northern Patagonia by spending a few days at Huechahue, a working estancia just 30 minutes from San Martin de los Andes and within easy access of Bariloche.

Accommodation is very comfortable, comprising of ten double or twin rooms.The dining hall features a huge sunken indoor barbecue, on which huge joints of local beef are cooked to perfection - no matter your steak preference. After a day's ride or hike, relax weary muscles in the sauna and hot tub under the stars.

Riders of all levels, from beginners through to the more experienced are catered for with a wide selection of 30 beautiful horses and a professional team of gauchos. Whilst living your life as a gaucho, there's plenty more to do, other activities include fishing, rafting, walking, swimming or working with the gauchos, all in the surrounds of the beautiful Andean foothills. Hikes of varying levels of difficulty can be tailored to each group.

Huechahue is in an area with exceptionally high numbers of bird species as it’s on the cusp of three different eco-systems. All the summer birds come in September and leave in March, so keen birdwatchers should visit during these months.
