Estancia Huechahue-pronounced (way-cha-way) is a working cattle ranch comprised of 15,000 acres on the Argentine steppe. This ranch is a well-known destination of horseback riding enthusiasts; however, it is also fortunate to be in the heart of some of the best trout water found in northern Patagonia. Huechahue is the perfect place for both fisherman and horseback rider and the scenery will amaze you whether it is viewed from the saddle or from the middle of the river.
Huechahue is a self-sufficient "green" ranch -- they grow organic fruits and vegetables, generate their own electricity, and produce their own eggs, meats, and jams. The ranch has historical significance as there are several caves on the property that have been used by the local Mapuche Indians as burial sites, and some have primitive art on the walls. Other features include tennis court, plunge pool, sauna, and excellent stag hunting in the fall season.
Located approximately 45 miles from San Martín de los Andes and 125 miles from San Carlos de Bariloche and is serviced by airports in these two locations.
