Every aspect of a visit to Guayascate is designed to ensure that hunting parties are delivered the ultimate in wingshooting opulence—even the dramatic setting differentiates this remote Argentinean venue from most other sporting lodges, worldwide. Located less than two hours from the city of Cordoba, Argentina—in Cordoba Province, famed for dove shooting—Guayascate sits on more than 2,300 acres of prime dove habitat. For hunting jet setters, fatigued by their overnight journey, proximity to the dove fields means you can leave the lodge and be sitting in your blind in under three minutes. This, in my experience, breaks all records for hunting convenience.
You can reach Guayascate first through Santiago, Chile, or via Buenos Aires, Argentina, followed by a connecting flight to Cordoba International Airport. Although a flight across the Andes is certainly picturesque, there is something special about touching down in the city of Buenos Aires. Indeed, it would be remiss to visit such a wonderful country and yet forgo a stop in the crown jewel city.
Designed by renowned Argentinean architect Dick Shilton, Guayascate is a departure from the usual Spanish colonial and mission-style buildings one typically sees in this region. Indeed, the contemporary-styled lodge would not look out of place situated on a South Texas quail ranch. This is particularly true following sundown, when a battery of light illuminates every façade. The design exudes a charm and proffers a feeling of intimacy.
