Parana Sunrise Lodge is surrounded by grain fields plagued by millions of dove and offer non-stop, hot barrel shooting that is on par with Cordoba’s best dove hunting. When you are tired and sore from shooting, take to the Parana River in search of Golden Dorado on the fly or lure. Guests at Parana Sunrise Lodge will enjoy fast access to dove hunting and Golden Dorado fishing all while indulging in comfort, delicious meals and renowned Argentine hospitality. This Argentina Cast and Blast is convenient and uncompromising.
Located outside San Javier, Santa Fe, Parana Sunrise is a secluded hunting and fishing lodge situated on a huge delta only few kilometers west of the main the Parana River. It holds 16 guests in six single and five double rooms, all with private full baths. Meals are served either in the main dining room or on the veranda with panoramic views of the Parana River. Wind down after a long day with drinks and appetizers on the veranda, at the open bar or soak in the riverside pool and hot tub. The main lodge room includes a fireplace, large flat-screen TV, bar area, small business center, poker table, merchandise display and a wine cellar.

Forget dove hunting in Cordoba when a Cast & Blast at Parana Sunrise offers equal shooting plus outstanding Golden Dorado fishing all under one roof. Guests have total flexibility to choose their Dorado and Dove Cast & Blast schedule. North and south of Parana Sunrise Lodge lie miles of corn, rice, milo and sunflowers fields plagued by millions of dove. Within a 15-45 minute drive, hunters can experience a true high volume Argentina dove hunt. On a full day dove shoot, a barbecue lunch and siesta is an integral part of the Argentine dove hunting experience. On afternoon shoots, the morning is spent Golden Dorado fishing the edge of a vast labyrinth of marshlands only a few kilometers west of the Parana River’s main channel. A full day Dorado fishing allows anglers to venture deep into a remote network of rivers, creeks and lagoons where fly and spin fishermen will find prolific fishing for Golden Dorado that average 7-8 pounds.
Dove and Dorado Combo
While most Argentina Dove and Dorado combination trips require extensive travel between the fishing and shooting or have one activity that is inferior to the other, Parana Sunrise Lodge offers fast access to world-class dove hunting and Golden Dorado fishing. Guests have the flexibility shoot or fish as much as they like, evening doing both in one day. We highly recommend no shorter than 7 nights/6 days as this will give you time to settle in, improve your shooting and fishing techniques and offer buffer days against rain. This is the best of two Argentine classics, high volume dove shooting and outstanding Golden Dorado fishing, done conveniently from one beautiful lodge.
