In Extremadura, one of the regions with a longer hunting tradition in Spain, and only 30 minutes far from the city of Caceres, the estate Hierro de Araya lays.

Araya is part of a blessed land, dominated by the riverbank of the same name, which runs from North to South, and dresses the land in green during all the year, giving the perfect habitat for partridge breeding. The landscape is large and wavy; drives are fast and challenging; it holds a stately house and built in a genuine Spanish style; and, attention is exquisite concerning its quality and the personal relationships, what is truly luxury. Once you know it, to hunt in Araya will be just the excuse to visit often a land with whom you will fall in love.

The main business of the estate is a farm specializing in cow breeding, although in its almost 5.000 acres the hunting game is also offered through the monteria and the small game in many modalities.

Concerning the partridge shoots, a large rolling terrain, with hills and valleys, is used to offer challenging drives. Then, the beaters beat the terrain towards the line of guns situated in the valley, offering usual high and exciting birds. A secretario and a loader help each gun. The first one will point the results and retrieve the birds after each drive; the second one will load the guns in order you don’t miss any bird.

We organize 4 different drives during the morning and we stop to offer an exquisite meal in the main house. There, our own chef and waiters will attend you to offer a nice time with your fellow hunters sharing the opinions of the shoot while tasting the delicious local gastronomy. But our proposal goes beyond, then, at the end of each drive, a small appetizer will be offered in the field, while secretarios retrieve all the came down birds and the complete staff get ready for a new drive.

Thus, service is based on excellence. It means that we take care a lot of our guests; solving any need they have, advising them in any situation, and just trying to be ‘the perfect host’. In this way, since you arrive at the airport, you will be completely attended by our team.

Beyond the hunt, Extremadura region is a well-known destination thanks to its culture and gastronomy. By one hand, the city of Caceres, named World Heritage City by the UNESCO; the ancient roman theatre of Merida, and all the roman and Arabian vestiges in the region compounds one of the more fascinating lands to discover. By other hand, its gastronomy is based in country products. Its hams, its cheeses and its wines are just a reason to discover this land that you will never forget.

    Magnificent farm and wonderful people. The perfect place to combine beach and hunting. If you are thinking of organizing a beach and tourism plan, accompanied by family, girlfriend or wife, with a hunting trip, it is the ideal destination! Located in the Formentor Peninsula, the managers, Tomeu and Luis, will help you organize this spectacular trip. Not only to hunt a species as unique as the Balearic boc, but for the fact of refusing skirting cliffs and dreamy beaches, with an organization and some people who will do everything on their part to achieve an unforgettable trip. Undoubtedly, one of the best trips I remember, as I was able to enjoy my girlfriend together with my great passion, which is hunting, as well as spending a few days on the endless and pleasant beaches that run through Mallorca. Enjoy the opportunity to hunt, combinable with a few days of beach and tranquility, requires a very professional staff and a unique place, that enclose these qualities together; turning it into an essential place in the hunting agenda of any hunter. Destination 10, hunting 10 and organizing an 11.

    I hunted with the company in 2015 and got a fantastic service before, during and after the hunt . I recommend every hunter and family going to Mallorca to give them self this experience. Hunting the Balearean boc and it is a beautiful animal.

    My biggest dream came true when I in late January took a trip to Mallorca. Not for sunbathing, but to experience the hunt for Balearean Boc , in the mountains of Formentor , which is located right next to the sea. I saw a lot Balearean Boc -and I also got what I wanted , a very beautiful Balearean Boc. But socializing with my guide Louis, was part of making the trip to something special and memorable. In the presence of the early spring sunshine , he served a delicious Spanish tapas , with a corresponding good Spanish wine while he entertained me with stories of the original 5000 year old Balearean Boc , which is something very special and rare. I very highly recommend for people to take the ride.
