Discover the most exciting experience on the trail riding  through Patagonia’s wilderness, spend some nights at exclusive Estancias and others camping out.

Patagonia is meant to be one of the most vast areas in the world! Riding among wild red deer, wild boar and "guanacos", is a unique experience, which everyone should do at least one ina lifetime!


DAY 1: Arrive at Chapelco airport, San Martin de los Andes, (most flights arrive at midday) and meet your guide.  Transfer to the Estancia San Huberto and start your riding holiday.

After settling in at the house and a light lunch, a good afternoon ride where you can get to know your horse and the grounds.  Estancia San Huberto is a large property of 10,000 hectares, along the valley of the Malleo River, famous for it’s’ trout fishing and close to the magnificent Lanin Volcano.

DAY 2: In the morning we leave the Estancia taking our lunch with us, and preparing ourselves for a whole day in the wilds. We will be riding in the “Triangulo”, a special part of the ranch, where lots of red deer and wild boar con be seen while riding.

Lunch will be by a stream, where we’ll enjoy of local food, meat, fruit and vegetables. A great opportunity for comfort stop, have some wine, a “mate” and stretch your legs.

In the afternoon, we return back to the Estancia & enjoy a good dinner and all the comfort of the house.

DAY 3 to 6: After a cooked breakfast, we start our morning ride, exploring the estancia, riding up into the hills, crossing creeks and gullies, enjoying magnificent sceneries and some wild life.  

Spend next 4 days riding into the Andes; exploring the “Lenga” forests, following cattle tracks up into the mountains, stopping to enjoy the stunning views, dominated at all times by the Lanin Volcano, and reaching the wonderful “Araucaria” forests, which are really fantastic in this area of the country. 

After a good day’s ride, in the evening, when we get back to our camp a quick swim in the river and relax next to the campfire to enjoy another delicious dinner.

(The camping gear and guests light luggage will be discretely taken to the camping site).

 On our last day we start to ride back to the Estancia house, stopping for a picnic lunch besides “La Laguna” or the Malleo River both full of water wild life. The bird life is fantastic, up to 40 species of birds have been sighted along the Malleo, including almost extinct “torrent duck” and sometimes the condors might fly over.

In the evening we will get back to the comfort of the estancia, hot baths and showers.

 DAY 7: Today we start our ride towards the Chenque, a natural viewpoint above the River Malleo that Indians used as a lookout and where arrowheads and beads can still be found. 

We will stop for lunch, a picnic, next to the river under the willow trees, and perhaps a brief siesta, or a swim in the river! During the afternoon we ride across the hills and back up to the house following the river.

 DAY 8: After breakfast we can go for a short ride or otherwise go to San Martin to do a little shopping before leaving to the airport (Chapelco) to catch your flight.
