Estancia Huechahue, San Martin de los Andes

Estancia Huechahue has been hand-hewn from the rugged Patagonian wilderness by the Wood family of cattle ranchers. And transformed into a holiday experience quite unlike any other. Here you will come to understand that life really is an adventure, that nature is both wild and astonishingly beautiful, that a horse has a soul and that food tastes so much better when it is home-grown and cooked simply by people who know what they’re doing.

Make Estancia Huechahue a place to stay on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Argentine Patagonia and you will also come to understand the value of a soft, warm bed after a day’s riding. The importance of relaxing in a spa. The suppressed thrill of fly fishing. The sheer exhilaration of river rafting….
