Huechahue offers guests of PRG North the best central location in the San Martin de los Andes area. Huechahue is truly what a Patagonia lodge should represent, and is set in the middle of a classic Argentine working estancia of approximately 20,000 acres allowing guests to enjoy an authentic cultural as well as unique estancia experience. From Huechahue, PRG North has the opportunity to fish a different river daily and choices such as: Chimehuín, Malleo, Collón Cura, Quilquihue, Catán lil, Filo Hua Huam, Tromen Lake, and Aluminé are possible. The lodge consists of a spacious main house where breakfast, cocktails and delicious dinners are served. Accommodations are spread out in two separate cabins or outbuildings as well as in the main lodge. Each of Huechahue’s eight rooms has a private bath and all the amenities guests desire at top lodges. Single occupancy is always given to PRG’s guests when available – at no extra cost!

Guests will also enjoy a sauna, jacuzzi, and an incredible “quincho” where the famous “asados” take place around an enormous and elaborated fire pit. Estancia Huechahue is known as one of the finest estancias for horseback riding in all of Patagonia and fabulous rides can easily be arranged from one day to the next. Other non-fishing activities such as: visiting the town of San Martín de los Andes, bird watching, day hikes on site, art tours, golf, and other cultural tours are easily put together making the non-fishers’ stay at Huechahue as fun and exciting as the fishers. Trips as short as 4 days can easily be arranged at Huechahue, and exciting and diverse extended stays can also be added on, including deluxe overnight camping trips and stays at other area estancias. Guests can also combine with PRG’s exclusive Lodge at Trevelin to make their trip the ultimate in variety and scenery.
