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 has a really good Malbec House wine and also offer a smaller selection of Top Quality wines from the Mendoza and San Juan regions. It is also stocked with White wine and Isenbeck beer, a refreshing South American lager. Since the 2017 season the former outdoor veranda has been transformed to an indoor Winter Garden perfect for the after fish beer or glass of wine. A spacious courtyard protected from the wind, a large fixed outdoor stone grill and terrace for assado (barbeques) ensures our guests to find the space and comfort needed throughout their entire stay. 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 outside is perfectly fine and appreciated by many. Evenings are often spent in the 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. Wifi is available throughout the lodge.
Shop: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 designed and produced by the Solid adventures team along with other premium quality clothing, gear and accessories from Premium brands. From the 2018 season the shop will have a bigger and more comprehensive selection of tackle and clothing available.
