Begin your tour with pick-up either from your Coyhaique hotel or Plaza de Armas in central Coyhaique, and soak up the scenery on the short ride to the stables at the Cerro Negro estancia.
After meeting your guide, you’ll be introduced to the ranch’s equine residents and matched with a suitable horse – there are a variety of Chilean-bred horses to suit all levels, including first-time riders, so you’ll be sure to find the perfect partner. Then, mount up and learn the basics of stopping and steering your horse before heading out on the trails.
Rides are tailored to the group’s level, so you might enjoy a leisurely ride through the countryside, soaking up the scenery and spotting local wildlife, or for more experienced riders, have chance to trot, canter, or tackle more challenging terrain. The route will take you along woodland trails and mountain tracks, stopping at a spectacular viewpoint overlooking Cerro Negro.
After safely returning to the stables, your driver will be waiting to take you back to Coyhaique.
