Horseback

Exploring

Exploring the many streams, hotsprings, waterfalls, lagoons and hidden passes of the high Chilean Andes on horseback is like experiencing the same odyssey that the Spanish conquerors carried out almost 500 years ago. All the passes, landscapes, flora and fauna remain the same, habited only by silent animals such as big condors and pumas (mountain lion). The vegetation is sparse, trees are rarer and smaller the higher you ascend until you finally reach green summer pastures full of wild flowers and sparkling streams with deliciously clean drinking water.

This type of excursion is quite a bit less work than hiking and particularily appropiate for going long distances over rugged terrain. There is no other way to travel here and probably will never be.
