Join us in this unique “Gaucho experience” (Horseback riding Mendoza) to discover a part of the Andes Mountain Range called “Cordón del Plata” and experience typical Argentine customs, such as eating a barbecue or sharing mate. All of this in an exuberant natural environment that will fill you with joy.

From your accommodation in Mendoza, you will travel for 2 hours (depending on the traffic) and on the way you will pass through Cacheuta as well as Potrerillos and its dam.

When you arrive at the ranch where you will set up camp, delicious tortitas and mate will be waiting for you. Have you tried mate? Well, here you will get the chance to taste this Argentine infusion.

After some country breakfast, you will meet the Gaucho and the horse that will take you to see places of incredible natural beauty in the Andes. Bring your camera with you because what you are about to see is unique!

After a 1.3-hour of horseback riding, you will surely be hungry. Don’t worry, another great part of this tour awaits you on the middle of Mendoza Andes: we will eat a great barbecue, accompanied by salads and wine; and finally, dessert.

After the barbecue, we will get back to the Ranch and our transportation to Mendoza city.
