Uruguay, Estancia La Paz

ESTANCIA LA PAZ, Perdiz over dogs and doves (May – July)
Paysandu county, is located in the northwest of Uruguay near the Rio Negro county, which is where the Portela Brothers were born and raised. Their relationship with the local farmers and landowners gives them a great advantage in securing the most productive shooting fields, and most exclusive lodges.

Now home to dove, perdiz and pigeon hunters of Black River outfitters, this estancia is one of the finest remote and peaceful bed and breakfast Estancias in western Uruguay. Secured long before wing-shooting in Uruguay became famous, La Paz is the Portela Brothers’ first and longest lasting partnership, and continues to offer wonderful accommodations and service for guest of Black River Outfitters.
The lodge is approximately 208 miles from Montevideo, the capital of this small country.
Most commonly, shooters traveling on international flights to Uruguay and Montevideo International Airport will be met by a La Paz Lodge representative who will assist with gun clearance, if necessary, and who will transport the group to La Paz Lodge. The drive is approximately 3 hours through scenic rural Uruguay via paved highway.
