Crossing the Andes on horseback from Chile into Argentina

The ultimate horse back riding adventure over the Andes in southern Patagonia

Cross the Andes with us and get the best of two worlds and two historic horse cultures!
From the snow-capped volcanoes of the Chilean Andes, over a pass in Icalma, to the open valleys of the Argentinean pampas, we'll explore and witness the landscape transition as we ride. Encounter smoking volcanoes, snowy peaks, deep blue mountain lakes, and dense, towering rainforests during this once in a lifetime experience.
On the Chilean side we'll experience steep mountains and endless virgin rainforests with our low, sturdy Chilean Criollo horses. Crossing the border, we'll witness the unique Argentinean gaucho lifestyle, the vast plains, and the dramatic cliffs where we can admire the majestic Patagonian condor.
Join us for this unique adventure!
