Worldwide hunters have found this lodge to have world-class service (accommodation, food, hospitality, etc.), monster red stags, and the most sought after Argentinian species such as (Mouflon, Alpine Ibex, Fallow Deer, Pere David Deer).

The ranch logged the first entry for the SCI Record book in South America. It was was founded 1963 and people have been hunting there even before it was officially created. In fact, this lodge and ranch is the longest standing hunting resort in Argentina with guests from all over the world (mainly Germany, Austria, Spain and the US). Our staff and guides have over 50 years of combined experience to better serve our guests.

The ranch is located on the lake district of Patagonia near San Martin de los Andes. It is different from any other Patagonia location due to the microenvironment created around the lakes.

A message from your Host and Lodge Owner

Marcelo Sodiro and José Sodiro

Hunting has been a part of our life, from a very early age. This passion was as true and strong at that moment as it is today.

We have had the great opportunity to go hunting all over the world.

Over two decades ago, driven by experience and passion, José and I set up a company which offers big game and bird shooting safaris in Argentina as well as other South American countries. The project of a sound company with a strong international presence started to develop and it is definitely consolidated today.

1988/2012: This Argentinean ranch and lodge has become a leading company in Argentina, enjoying a world-renowned reputation. It is a company designed and managed by men who have chosen hunting not only as their job, but also as their lifestyle and passion.

Best Regards, 
Marcelo and Jose Sodiro
