Experiential travel finds a true destination in this magic place in the Patagonian Andes Lake District.

Day 2 Bariloche

After a delicious breakfast,start your exploration of the beautiful area surrounding Estancia Peuma Hue. There are many different ways to experience the pure natural beauty of the region:

Trekking: There are several options to choose, meeting different interests, lengths and levels of difficulty or expertise. We will provide you with sketches and an explanation highlighting different spots on the path. Trails are marked with ribbons of different colours to make them easier to follow and often, if you wish, our dogs will be your “hiking guides”. If you would rather have any of us accompanying you, please let us know.

Horseriding: Our rides start at our stables, where our guide picks up the suitable horse for each guest; saddles them and provides the necessary equipment (helmet and half chaps) for each guest. After checking expertise and providing instructions, rides set off into different directions according to the level of expertise and previous rides. We adapt to different ages and levels of expertise – from beginners to experts – with different riding trails.

Day 3 Bariloche

Continue your exploration of the Estancia and surrounds.

Kayaking & Boat Rides: Paddling on the lake is magical. You can paddle as long as you wish, maybe to the facing beaches at the peninsula at Bahía Muñoz, while watching trout jumping in front of your kayak. Or simply indulge in drawing in the beauty from its shore or swimming in clear water.

Birdwatching: We organise guided birdwatching trips for half or a full day both inside the property and in the surroundings or for a few days in the region. We can easily reach different natural environments such as the Andean North Patagonia UNESCO Biodiversity Reserve forests, transition forest, the steppe, rural areas and into Chile to the central valley and the Pacific coast. Just around the houses we have spotted over 57 different species. Please refer to our birdwatching list.

Day 4 Bariloche

After breakfast, depart Estancia Peuma Hue. The lodge offers transfers to Bariloche Airport or downtown.
