DETAILS:

Suitability:

This trip suits experienced riders wishing to combine some local flavor and comfortable accommodations with their riding adventure. It is designed for those who prefer not to camp and who enjoy a mixture of riding, from technical to some fast riding. There are some days of approximately 8 or more hours in the saddle.

During long days riders will be asked not to ride their horses overly hard. We strive to be a humane company and keep our horses fairly treated. The holiday is a joint experience of the place and the riding. We expect the riders to treat the horses as though they were their own at all times.

Riders will experience a first-hand view of Patagonia estancia life, which includes the joys, threats and difficulties posed by farming cattle and sheep in the area. The route offers plenty of diversity with rides across open pampas, rides to wild glaciers and ice-berg filled lakes and peaceful rides through valleys and ancient beech forests. Throughout these long days in the saddle, the snow-capped mountains are never far away.
Accommodation:

The accommodation is a mix of authentic estancias and where this is not available, comfortable hotels.
