SOUTHERN GLACIERS EXPEDITION

Horse Holiday in Argentina - Southern Glaciers
Southern Patagonia is top of most people’s bucket list. We have a unique ride for you firstly staying at the only Estancia within Los Glaciares National Park, riding out daily along the shores of the great lake, through native forests and over grasslands then crossing ridges into valleys on the Chilean border. We depart by boat to arrive at the face of the famous Perito Moreno Glacier. Then follows more riding in a distinct area of this spectacular wilderness.
