The Lodge / Accomodation
Q: Do we have a wine cellar?
Estancia Las Buitreras offers a perfect blend between luxury and rustic atmosphere. The very comfortable estancia is located a 10 minute walk from the river offering a wind protected haven from the wind plagued open plains of Patagonia. The 6 double and 2 single-bed rooms are all equipped with private bathrooms with showers for your comfort and convenience. Although the lodge can accommodate up to 14 guests at one time we only allow a maximum of 12 fishermen per week. This way we can offer rested pools for every guest every session all week. The lodge holds a wine cellar with a fantastic selection from the Mendoza and San Juan regions. It is also stocked with Isenbeck beer, a refreshing South American lager.
Outside there is a huge veranda, perfect for the after fish beer or glass of wine, a spacious courtyard that is protected from the wind, and a large, fixed stone grill and terrace for assado’s (barbeques). Beer and the high quality locally produced House wine is included in the lodge rate but we also keep a wide selection of high quality local wines not often available elsewhere at very reasonable rates. Smoking is not allowed inside the lodge but having a cigar on the veranda at night is perfectly fine and appreciated by many. Evenings are often spent in the very spacious lounge area where you will be served the beverage of your choice, along with food and snacks while sharing todays and probably some old but gold fishing episodes with your fellow guests. Wi-fi is available in the lodge 8 am to 6 pm every day.
The lodge has a small shop where we you can buy souvenirs and premium quality fly fishing tackle like our Las Buitreras Sea Trout Collection fly boxes – complete with a selection of flies specifically chosen for Rio Gallegos, Solid Gear Wading Jackets with a unique Las Buitreras print, and of course lines and leaders.
