El Paraiso Lodge
A hunting lodge with a rich history. Designed by an American architect with a rancho style design, the lodge is decorated with a great collection of Argentinean trophies. There are six huge bedrooms with private bathrooms. The large living room with a fire place is placed in the heart of the lodge which creates an easy route to a common area where the warmth and an easy social atmosphere is enhanced.
The cuisine is exquisite, with Goyo, our Peruvian chef with 17 years of experience cooking Argentinean food for international hunters: with the best Argentine beef and quality ingredients, he creates an array of delicious traditional specialties and international dishes. Carefully selected Argentine wines complement his mouth-watering menus.
From the moment you arrive in Argentina, service is personalized and attention is paid to every imaginable detail. This standard is maintained throughout the house staff and guide tam making this dove shooting program hard to beat.
We have been operating the area for 14 years and we have improved based on the shared experience of our guests.
Wake up call is generally around 7:30am and the shooting begins after a hearty breakfast. You will shoot until noon when you will be treated to an incredible lunch at the lodge, tasting some of Argentina’s wonderful beef and superb wines. Afternoon shoot begins at around 2:30 and continues until almost dark.
