Parque Diana could be called one of the pioneers in the quest for record trophies in the Americas. Founded by German Consul Dr. Carl Adolf Vogel, who was in search of wide open spaces which could no longer be found on the European continent, acquired 85,000 hectares in the virgin woods of Patagonia. Conservation might have been Consul Vogel’s main motive to build Parque Diana, but his quest for excellence is easy to notice when he began his search for the best (and ONLY the best) trophy Red Deer in England, Austria and Hungary. Over 5 species of deer, goats and wild sheep were selected in the European tradition and shipped by boat first to Buenos Aires (capital of Argentina) and then 1,600km by land to the new reserve he decided to name Parque Diana. Red deer adapted well to Patagonia and found an environment which nurtured record/monster stags. Worldwide hunters found in Parque Diana world-class service (accommodation, food, hospitality, etc.), monster red stags, and the most sought for species (Mouflon, Alpine Ibex, Fallow Deer, Pere David Deer).
Parque Diana logged the first entry for the SCI Record book in South America. The park was founded 1963 and people have been hunting there even before the park was officially created. In fact, Parque Diana is the longest standing hunting resort in Argentina with guests from all over the world (mainly Germany, Austria, Spain and the US). Our staff and guides have over 70 years of combined experience to better serve our guests.
Parque Diana is located on the lake district of Patagonia near San Martin de los Andes. It is different from any other Patagonia location due to the microenvironment created around the lakes. The rest of Patagonia can be pretty desertic.
