Enjoy our gourmet and traditional cuisine every night after your shooting day. Our professional chef will delight you with amazing Argentinean and international dishes. We will have special appetizers for your drinks before dinner every night. You have to experience our special goat or lamb “a la cruz”, which is a very local and well known way to prepare this unique delicatessen. Normally it takes more than three hours on the fire, to get it tender and amazingly tasty.

Gear and Equipment

SHOOTING SAFETY GLASSES OR SUN GLASSES: they should serve as sunglasses and they should de be shatterproof. The green or yellow protective glasses that can be worn over regular glasses are good. They have a small side panel, which protects against glare. They are available in many shooting sports suppliers.

LIGHTWEIGHT HAT: one with a wide brim is best.

SHOOTING GLOVES: this item is important to protect hands from hot shotgun barrels and nicks and blisters from reloading, breaking guns or activating safeties. Golf or batting gloves are a good substitute if you cannot find quality, sensitive leather shooting gloves.


SMALL FIELD BAG: to carry camera gear and other personal items into the field.

INSECT REPELLENT: especially for our summer season. Mosquitoes or other bothersome insects are very unusual in the field - you might take a small bottle of Cutter\'s Cream.

CAMERA: The area is scenic and photographic possibilities abound. 

EVENING DRESS: Clothing is casual. Slacks and sport shirts are all you need. 

The Hunting

In addition to the majestic red stag and the unique Pere David's deer, the Northern Bariloche Lodge offers more than 12 different species including fallow deer, axis deer, feral oxen, mouflon sheep, blackbuck antelope, black Jacob's ram, Patagonian dall, Patagonian ram, multihorned sheep, wild goat, Juan Fernández goat (Balearean Boc), puma and Russian boar.

We are proud to say that we offer the highest trophy quality that you will ever find in our country, and in the world. All trophies are awesome and guaranteed to make the record book.



With the combination of the scenery and the fair chase hunt we offer, we are sure that bowhunters will experience the true essence of a bow hunting adventure at Northern Bariloche lodge. You will find this country vast and open, making it easy to spot the prey from high vantage points. The hunting field and the hilly terrain are broken with ravines and streams all over, where the animals go down looking for places to drink and graze. The tall grasses and bushes make the perfect camouflage for this activity. Regarding shooting distances, hunters may expect to shoot from 30 to 70 yards.



Due to the very open nature of our terrain and the large size of the property, large tracts of ground need to be covered daily. Our extensive network of roads (+330mi) allows our guides to reach almost every part of the ranch on 4WD vehicles, however, final approach is always done on foot. Depending on the physical ability of the hunter, some walking is required to make good approaches to game. The usual daily distance hunters walk ranges from 1mi to 15mi. We move when the animals move and we bed when they bed. Early mornings and evenings are the best time to find game around the ranch.


What we do here is exclusive to you. We have hunted in an environment where you could feel as you are competing with the other hunters in the lodge. This is your hunting experience and our goal is to concentrate entirely on that.
