Just twenty minutes outside of Bariloche, Argentina, this unforgettable multi-activity and wellbeing mountain Eco Lodge, is a destination unto itself. Offering a 5-star boutique hotel and sustainable eco-tourism experience, Estancia Peuma Hue is home to 500 acres of mountains, valley, pristine forests, waterfalls, creeks and 2.5 miles of lake shore in the heart of Nahuel Huapi National Park.

Guests come from all over the world to experience our horseback riding, hiking, and kayaking on crystal clear Gutiérrez Lake. For those looking for a more serene experience, our Wellness Package allows guests to find balance of body and soul in our yoga classes, enjoy healing massages and mindful walks in pristine nature. Whether you want to explore our mountain trails accompanied by our famed golden retriever hiking guides or simply relax and read a book until your next delicious and healthy meal, there is truly something for everyone at Peuma Hue.

Perhaps the most surprising aspect of any stay at Estancia Peuma Hue is how interconnected you feel with nature while here. Whether it’s the flocks of Andean Geese, Ibis or parrots that patrol the grounds (or the 50+ other species of birds in the area), the friendly horses that roam freely, or the resident dogs that greet you serenely, tales wagging, when you arrive at the main house, there is a gentleness upon the earth that radiates from the soil to the tops of trees and mountains, embracing all who visit.

A Feast for the Senses

At Estancia Peuma Hue we provide an unforgettable dining experience including typical Argentine and regional Patagonian dishes and international cuisine. We focus on balanced, healthy and delicious meals, prepared with our home-made products. The produce comes from our own organic garden, greenhouse and orchard—all located within the estancia—as well as from local farmers markets, thus creating harmony with community and nature, fostering health and wellbeing.

As part of our lodging packages all breakfasts, lunches (including picnics), appetizers and dinners are provided. We operate a fixed menu, carefully designed for each season and according to produce available. Dietary restrictions and personal wishes can be accommodated if you inform us in advance. Top-rated regional wines and microbrew beers are available for an extra cost.

Available by request, we offer wine tasting evenings, with a large variety of internationally well-known Argentine wines. Cooking lessons and retreats are popular options for a minimum of 6 guests.

It’s a Family Affair

Families are welcomed at Peuma Hue and children thrive in the safety of our welcoming space. Whether they are playing with our dogs, kittens and feeding our horses; building houses from logs and branches, playing at the beach or in our Wendy house, or participating in rides, hikes, kayaking or boat rides, they may never want to leave! Parents will appreciate the privacy that our cabins provide; offering a wholesome, not-too-fussy experience for all ages.

We offer the following discounts when travelling with kids:

  • Children 2 years old or less: 100% complimentary, crib included.
  • Children ages 3 to 12: 20% off regular prices for all our packages.

A Typical Day at Peuma Hue

A typical day begins with sunrise and the sound of birds. After a quiet night and peaceful sleep, you’ll feel recharged. The lake is often glass-smooth at this time of day and as you walk to the dining hall for breakfast, you will revel in the bounty of life and the smiles of guests and staff alike.

After a hearty breakfast including both savory and sweet dishes, fresh raspberries from the garden, coffee or tea and juice, your next move is determined by the package you are on: guest on the Adventure Package may head out for a guided hike to a remote waterfall, saddle up for a trail ride with our delightful horse whisperer, try kayaking on our crystal lake, board a shuttle to go whitewater rafting on the nearby Manso River or take a day-long ridge hike in the high peaks that surround the estancia.

Guests on the Wellness Package may take a mindful walk in the flower-carpeted forest, meditate by the lake, contemplate from a rock couch or enjoy a yoga session in our secluded temple. Those on our Meals and Lodging package may choose a self-guided hike, a swim in the lake, or they may choose an a la carte activity or service available by booking through our office.

Lunch is served in the dining hall if you have chosen to remain at the estancia or a pack lunch is provided for those enjoying activities such as hiking or kayaking. If you’ve chosen to go whitewater rafting, you will be treated to an authentic asado at a nearby farm.

Afternoons are yours to do as you please: walk, hike, swim, ride, nap, read – the choice is up to you. As the day stretches to evening, your mind will turn to dinner. Cocktails and appetizers are served in the main lodge at 7pm and give you with the opportunity to meet the other guests before moving to the dining hall for another exquisite meal prepared by our chef.

After dinner you may choose to enjoy a moonlit walk, play a board game, visit with new friends or family or simply retire to your room for another relaxing night sleep.

I can’t rate this place highly enough! The setting is paradise on earth! The food so delicious and fresh. The service was considerate and thoughtful. We went horse riding, kayaking and hiking. We slept under a giant mountain, the stars and butterscotch wooden beams. There are happy and healthy animals including cats, dogs and horses to cuddle. We don’t want to leave!!! 10 stars! —drkAustralia
