What You Can Expect

Gaucho Day Trip from Buenos Aires: Don Silvano Ranch

Argentine BBQ

Depart Buenos Aires in a comfortable coach for the scenic ride through the Argentine pampas (plains) to Estancia Don Silvano. When you arrive at the estancia (ranch), your day of gaucho fun begins with a friendly welcome reception including empanadas, wine and juice.

Visit some of the ranch’s attractions, including the museum and bakery, before watching a milking demonstration – you can even participate in this daily activity if you like! Then watch the gauchos saddle up the horses, and take off on a leisurely horseback ride through the countryside.

Back at the ranch, tuck into a delicious BBQ lunch of grilled sausages, ribs and chicken accompanied by potato salad and ice cream. Red and white wine, soda, water and coffee are also all included. During lunch, be entertained by a folkloric song and dance show, and then work off your meal by participating in some traditional Argentine dances. Later, go for a carriage or tractor ride, and then watch the gauchos show off their incredible horse-riding skills with ring races and other performances.

Before heading back to Buenos Aires, enjoy a glass of mate (an Argentine drink of yerba mate leaves steeped in hot water) accompanied by sweet cakes with quince jelly.
