Would you like to get to know the Andes on horseback? In this unique experience at Don Daniel’s ranch, you will ride with the guide of a gaucho in the unforgettable scenery of the sunset among the mountains.

What does the experience consist of? 

On this horseback ride at sunset in Mendoza we will welcome you at an authentic mountain ranch. The Cordillera is home to our friend Daniel, who knows every corner…and enjoys sharing it with his guests. No one can guide you better than him!

The activity will be complete. Not only will we ride, practicing the gaucho skill par excellence, but we will do it while the sun sets, admiring the orange sky among ravines, valleys, and the immensity of the Andes Mountain Range.

Anything else? Of course, for Destino Montaña the chance to taste something delicious is a must on every trip. In the middle of the ride we will invite you to a traditional picada (charcuterie plate), accompanied by a good wine from Mendoza.

So, with “a full belly and a happy heart”, we will finish our tour returning to where we started. At Don Daniel Ranch we will get off the horse to say goodbye after having lived a new experience horseback ride at sunset in Mendoza and taken a lot of nice pictures.

About the place

Valle del Sol is one of the most traditional villages in the mountain town of Potrerillos. Located less than 100 km from the capital of Mendoza, it has a huge dam that provides water to the Greater Mendoza and nearby towns. Its size and beautiful view make it an iconic point in the area.

2400 meters from there, in the town of Las Vegas, we get to the Las Lajas post, at the foot of the Plata range. And at that point we find our host Daniel’s ranch.

This unique place is part of the Plata range, a mountain range located in the Front Range, which covers the departments of Tupungato and Luján de Cuyo. 

In these mountains, surrounded by sixthousanders and fourthousanders (summits that are around 4,000 and 6,000 m.a.s.l.), important water courses are born: the Las Mulas, Vallecitos, Río Blanco and El Salto streams.
