About 70 kilometres east of the pretty town of San Martin de los Andes, lies the 61 square kilometre working estancia of Huechahue. Explore the beautiful scenery horseback riding through vast expanses of meadow, to the base of the Andes, and watch condors and eagles soaring over ancient Indian burial caves, where primitive drawings can still be seen on the walls.
You can join the gauchos working the cattle, and enjoy a traditional barbecue lunch, the asado. Or spend a sunny day rafting down the river, stopping for lunch and a swim in a calm pool, or try trout fishing for the famed wild brown trout.
Huechahue offers an intimate estancia experience. It only has 10 rooms, grows many of the ingredients for its excellent meals on its own land and offers some of the most authentic riding in the area, for novices to experienced riders.
