Travel to Chile - horseback riding tours

Discover the wilderness and pure nature of the Chilean Andes off the beaten track. Refresh your spirits on a horse riding vacation.

You will see unspoilt nature and the legendary condors, you will meet traditional people, Gauchos on their horses and enjoy the contrasts of the Andes like colourful canyons and an incredible mountain scenery.

The many streams, hotsprings, waterfalls, lagoons and hidden passes of the high Andes and the remote Patagonia have not changed since the Spanish conquistadors rode across them almost 500 years ago. All the passes, landscapes, flora and fauna remain the same. Inhabited only by silent animals such as, big condors guanacos and pumas (mountain lion). The mountains are full of wild flowers and sparkling streams. Horseback riding is quite a bit less work than hiking and particularly appropriate for going long distances over rugged terrain. There is no other way than horseback riding to travel here and probably will never be. The guides for these trips are Arrieros and baqueanos (cowboys). As there are no roads or steady trails here, they have learned the routes from their fathers and grandfathers before them. It is worth learning Spanish to understand their tales around the campfire!
