Travel Recommendations and FAQ 
Flight Booking
 
  • We recommend to book your flights at the time you make a reservation on a hunting or fishing trip. The reason for that is because you will find better rates. Also, it is very important to book early because of the amount of hunters and fisherman's traveling to Patagonia that time of the year.
  • If you are booking a hunting or fishing trip to Patagonia we recommend to flight to San Martin de los Andes (Chapelco airport) if possible. This airport is the closest to most of the ranches and fishing lodges that we offer. There is only 3 flights per week from Buenos Aires. The other option is San Carlos de Bariloche with flights every day from Buenos Aires. If you are booking a hunting trip to La Pampa, you will fly from Buenos Aires to Santa Rosa. With flights every day.
  • If you are booking a wingshooting trip you will only have to worry about getting to Buenos Aires. We also can provide with charter flights to some of our hunting lodges. We can also recommend a few nice Hotels, Restaurants and Shows for your stay in Buenos Aires. The transfers from Ezeiza (Buenos Aires International Airport) to Aeroparque ( Buenos Aires domestic Airport) or to the Hotel of your choice is not included on your hunting packages.

We offer a van service with bilingual drivers to assist you thru the gun permits and everything you might need with the airline companies.
This service is thru Blue Executive.
