Viaje a la estepa patagónica y las estribaciones de los Andes argentinos en un agradable paseo guiado a caballo de 2 horas.

En esta excursión de un día a las afueras de Bariloche, visite uno de los ranchos en activo más antiguos de la zona, donde podrá disfrutar de un almuerzo de 3 platos con "asado" (barbacoa tradicional de carnes) y una barra libre de determinados bebidas. Los jinetes de todos los niveles son bienvenidos; traslado al hotel incluido.
Lovely day overall. Punctual pick up from our hotel in a private taxi, joined by another lovely couple only 4 of us at the experience all day! Our driver knew the roads well and got us to the ranch safely.
The food was OUTSTANDING - some of the best beef and sausage that we had in Argentina. There was also plenty of wine to go round as well as the option of soft drinks. Our host's English was much better than he gave himself credit for, but even while speaking Spanish, explaining about the countryside, animals and birds, he did so in such a way that you could get the gist of the conversation.
After a great lunch we went on the horseback ride. As someone who had never ridden a horse before, I was extremely nervous, but with some basic instructions I really enjoyed the experience. My horse was docile enough that I felt in control although I probably wasn't at any point!
Overall - fantastic welcome and food. Enjoyable trail taking in condor nests and the natural landscape we also saw a baby skunk! Great for beginners like me. On reflection I probably should have asked for a helmet just to feel 100 comfortable but survived the trail unscathed!
Some quick tips from me, the winds got a bit strong and cold at times, bring something warm to throw on and perhaps jogging bottoms rather than shorts. Well worth doing whilst in the area.
Everything was fantastic, The horse ride was fun, through beautiful countryside. The gauchos/guides were very helpful especially as we were beginners on horseback. The asado lunch with great wine, was delicious. Our host was very charming and informative, and our fellow caballeros were a lovely bunch. Just a perfect day for all of us.
