Routes tucked into the Andean foothills, across the Southern Patagonia plains, through the wildlife-rich wetlands -the geographical width and breathe of Argentina combined with the deep-seated horse culture allows us to offer a wealth of experiences. Of course, all accompanied by the famous local Gauchos and rounded off with tango and polo in Buenos Aires
Brazil - Pantanal
A trip with us to the Brazilian Pantanal -the biggest tropical wetland on Earth and considered one of the most pristine, brings guests up close to a host of iconic South American wildlife and also into the heart of the cattle ranching culture. A giant haven to a dense population of jaguars, anteaters, tapirs, toucans, macaws, parrots, and monkeys that the open, friendly Pantaneiros will delight in revealing to you.
Chile: Atacama Desert
The full palate of fiery hues greets those who ride through the sand dunes, canyons, salt flats and lunar landscapes that stretch out under the volcanoes of the Atacama Desert
Chile - Argentina
Crossing the Andes from the Lake District of Chile into Argentina in northern Patagonia takes riders into regions where there are no roads, borders are crossed by boat, and the pioneers’ remote island villas are a welcome sight at the end of the day. Deep blue glacier-fed lakes, thrilling traverses across clear rivers, paths through dense ancient forests, and a riveting culture give these trips a sense of place and wonder seldom found in other parts of the world.
The romance of Colombia’s lush coffee region, the heartfelt beauty of the Andes Mountains, and lively culture make riding through this country a pleasure. The warm smiles and enthusiasm of people along the way lead to fun days and evenings spent relaxing with delightful new acquaintances.
Sweeping mountain paramos under glacier-topped volcanoes, verdant views of rolling, patch-worked hills, and celebrated haciendas await those who ride in Ecuador. Dressed in colourful, traditional clothing, the indigenous people of the countryside’s warmth and spirit are a far cry from the modern world. Each place we visit has a story to tell, a memory to share, and an experience to savour.
The coast of Uruguay sets the stage for riding trips under warm sunny winter skies along pristine stretches of beach where whales and dolphins swim offshore and across the fauna rich pastures. The gauchos accompany us through this sparsely populated riding destination traversing an enviable bio-diversity encountering both enchanting wildlife and unusual flora.
