Sporting Holidays

Sporting vacations and holidays can be many things. For more than 10 years at At Plan South America we have specialized in all styles, but from rustic to luxurious, sporting is something that will never go without authenticity, particularly in South America.

The wildernesses of Argentina and Chile offer legendary adventures with rod and gun, superb fly-fishing for trout and golden dorado and the best dove shooting in the world. We work with selected lodges in each region; some luxuriously spoiling, others cozy riverside cabins. We also have exclusive access to a handful of properties which provide supremely privileged opportunities to stalk red stag, antelope, wild boar and buffalo, on foot or horseback.

One of the most important elements for a sporting holiday is the season, but with so many regions and climates available, South America is not a place where options are lacking.

Below is a brief summary of sporting seasons in each region.

What people say

  • We were delighted with the trip we have just completed to Brazil and Argentina. We walked down Copacabana beach, watched a tapir swim past our canoe in the Pantanal, were submerged in the Iguazu falls, conquered desert and vineyards in northwest Argentina, experienced a snowstorm in the Andes, fed Cayman off horseback and enjoyed a tango show in probably the finest city in South America. A truly memorable experience: we have no hesitation in recommending Plan South America.
  • We had just the most incredible time in Argentina and neither of us can quite find the words to describe how spoilt and utterly relaxed we felt being looked after by yourself and every single other person we came into contact with over there. A highlight for us both was I think El Condor and Patagonia. Jaime was an incredibly generous host and the experience was everything we hoped it would be. All your restaurant recommends in Buenos Aires were spot on. We've written a few letters, one to Gabriella and Nico and one to Jaime to thank them so very much.
