For over 20 years, Los Laureles Lodge has provided superior Argentina cast and blast adventures with high volume dove hunting and Golden Dorado fishing. Discerning sportsmen enjoy maximum comfort, a high standard of service and a rich resource that is completely unique in Argentina.
Only 3 hours from Buenos Aires, the luxurious Los Laureles Lodge sits in the middle of their 4000 acre private farm that contains a massive 700 acre dove roost. Guests can access their dove fields or boat launch within 5 minutes. Guests can easy shoot 1000+ shells in the morning, and in the afternoon fish for 5-20 pound Golden Dorado with a fly or lure on the Parana River and its hidden tributaries and lagoons. This is a high adventure Argentina cast & blast experience found at a world class sporting lodge on the Parana River in Entre Rios, Argentina. Whether you come for the fishing, the shooting, or both, you will find exceptional sport, deluxe accommodations and warm hospitality at Los Laureles Lodge.
In 1994, Los Laureles Lodge was built specifically for sportsman next to the Parana River and in the middle of their 4000 acre private farm. The 5 star lodge has 7 large double rooms and 3 single rooms all with en-suite bathrooms. The expansive living room centers around a fireplace and the dining room has an adjoining wood fire grill where guests can watch their steaks go from grill to plate. Additional amenities include air conditioning throughout, a Jacuzzi, bar area, WiFi, Satellite TV, a gun room and a swimming pool. Los Laureles maybe the only lodge in Argentina with US style electrical outlets throughout the lodge. The kitchen at Los Laureles prepares gourmet meals from a variety of grilled meats, fresh salads and desserts to a number of exquisite game dishes. Surprisingly, their house wines are all Reserve varietals from the world famous Salentien Winery.
For those who don’t fish or shoot, Los Laureles can arrange for horseback riding, boat excursions, sightseeing, cooking classes or a folklore or tango show after dinner.
Among all the wing shooting lodges in Argentina, Los Laureles Lodge has by far the shortest drive times. Hunters can literally walk to a number of dove blinds and transition from field to lunch table to boat within minutes. Both dove shooting and Golden Dorado fishing can be full day endeavors, but with travel times so short, most guest prefer to fish in the morning and shoot in the afternoon. The lodge is equipped with high quality fly, spinning and casting gear and use spacious Carolina Skiffs so two anglers can cast simultaneously. Depending on conditions, anglers will fish the main Parana River or up the far reaches of smaller tributaries and waterways. Golden Dorado average 6-7 pounds but these waters harbor fish much larger partly due to a strict Catch and Release policy.
Scatters throughout the Los Laureles 4000 acre estate are crop fields supporting millions of dove and pigeon. These fertile lands offer serious hot barrel shooting any day of the year. Los Laureles is the only operation in Entre Rios with their own private dove roost and they own and manage an additional 10,000 nearby acres. Private land ownership means no completion with other outfitters and full control of management.
