If you’d like to cross the Andes on horseback in more comfort, opt for our cabin to cabin version! We ride this tour mostly in the off season as an alternative to our tent camp ride. In these times staying in cabis overnight is an advantage due to the uncertain weather conditions. If you are looking for less nights in camps during main season you might prefer our 11 days ride including the crater and glacier of Sollipulli Volcano.
We still ahve some inevitable nights in tent camps, some in cabins, one night we stay in a mountain lodge. The trail follows mostly the route of our tent camp ride.
Pick up in Pucon 1.00 pm or Temuco airport 3.00 pm ,welcome to the farm. Time to get to know the horses, tack and equipment, and to get settled. In the evening we enjoy our first meal at the ranch house.
We take an initial ride through the Quelhue mountains and along Liucura River to evaluate your riding experience, get familiar with the saddle and tack and determine which horses to take on our great adventure. Lunch at Antilco, time to pack the saddlebags. In the evening we ride to our first camp at Renahue.
We cross the first of three mountain ranges on our trail towards Argentina. At night we camp beside the natural hot springs in Rio Blanco Valley. We ride virgin rainforests and dense stands of Coighue trees and bamboo and along the slopes of Sollipulli volcano, overnights in a tent camp at a farm in the Mapuche Indian comunity Flor del Valle and in the mountain lodge “Nevados de Sollipulli”.
Enjoy a documentary filmed by German National TV about our expedition to Sollipulli Volcano, our Chile - Argentina ride and life on our ranch.
Enjoy some impressions of our horses: the morning on the paddock, out riding and finishing the evening on their mountain pasture. A video by our guide Lotte.
