Shooting in Argentina at Guayascate Lodge
Will Southall describes the unforgettable experience of the shooting and hospitality on offer at Guayascate Lodge
If you are seeking an unforgettable shooting experience combined with exceptional hospitality, Guayascate Lodge in Argentina is the ultimate destination. Renowned for its outstanding dove shooting and impeccable service, this impressive Lodge is designed to cater to the highest expectations of guests.
The stunning 18,000 square foot Guayascate Lodge offers a level of comfort and luxury that is unmatched. The Lodge can accommodate ten Guns in single occupancy or up to 20 guests on a double occupancy basis. Each of the ten ensuite rooms is meticulously finished to ensure a luxurious and relaxing stay with excellent attention to detail.
Whilst being an exceptional Lodge to stay at, Guayascate Lodge is primarily known for its superb quality of shooting. Teams or individual Guns are transported to the shooting fields, which are approximately 15-30 minutes away from the Lodge, in air-conditioned minibuses. At the stands, the Guns are greeted by experienced “bird boys” and provided with all the necessary equipment for the day.
Whether you prefer your own stand or doubling up with friends and family, shooting at Guayascate offers ample opportunities for everyone. The shooting is as frenetic or relaxed as one wishes it to be, with birds approaching hides from all angles throughout the day providing superb sport for all. Each stand is equipped with a cold box containing refreshments, ensuring you stay hydrated and energized. After the morning shoot, guests gather for a delicious lunch, either in the field or back at the Lodge, depending on the area of the Estancia being shot. The lunch menu showcases a range of local meats and is expertly paired with exquisite wines.
Guayascate Lodge also boasts a variety of communal areas, providing the perfect environment for relaxation after a day in the field. Guests can unwind in the stunning sitting room, enjoy the extensive wine selection in the cellar, or take advantage of the multiple outdoor seating areas. The dining room offers breathtaking views of the Estate, where guests can savour delicious meals prepared by the Lodge’s own chef. As Argentina is renowned for its beef and wine, you can expect the dining experience to be nothing short of exceptional.
For wine enthusiasts, the Lodge’s impressive cellar houses an extensive selection of reds and whites, including renowned Argentinian wines such as the Malbec from the Mendoza region. Indulging in these exquisite wines is the perfect way to complement the outstanding shooting experience.
Getting to Guayascate Lodge is a breeze thanks to the Estate’s Cessna Caravan. The plane can fly from Buenos Aires and land directly on the Estate, just a short distance from the Lodge. In the event of poor weather conditions or the grass airstrip being unusable, the planes would land at Cordoba Airport, and guests would be driven the remaining 1.5 hours to the Lodge. Alternatively, teams can opt to drive from Buenos Aires or take a commercial flight to Cordoba, where they will be collected and driven to the Estate.
