    I had the most amazing time. I signed up for their 4-day horse riding trip from January 26th to 29th, 2024. As soon as I got there, the whole family made me feel super welcome and at home. The place is stunning, and they put me in this cozy room with everything I needed. The food was out of this world! Liza cooks like a pro, seriously the tastiest stuff I've had in ages. And let me tell you, the horse riding.... Mind-blowing.... It's hard to describe just how awesome it was. Ivan, the guide, was top-notch. He knows those horses inside out, and they're like the chillest, happiest horses ever. Even if you're a total newbie, you can handle it. I'm already telling all my non-riding pals they gotta try it. I've been on horseback here and there, but this was hands down the BEST riding experience ever. Plus, Ivan taught me so much about riding in just 4 days. Every morning, I was pumped to hop on a horse. We covered so much ground, from mountains to fields, even riding through rivers and lakes. Seeing Patagonia from the back of Ivan and Liza's horses? Unforgettable. I've done my fair share of traveling, and this ranks up there with the best. Huge thanks to the whole family for such an awesome vacation. You can bet I'll be booking this again, and next time, I'm staying longer.:)

    You'll get a warm welcome from the awesome host family in this gorgeous part of Southern Argentina, where you can see amazing views of the Andes mountains. They make all their food themselves, from yummy meals to bread, jams and honey. When it comes to horse riding, they'll match it to your skill level perfectly. The horses are trained really well for the area, so you can just chill and let them guide you through forests, rivers and up mountains, giving you some incredible sights along the way. You can go fishing for trout in the clear streams or lakes up in the mountains or take a hike through the National Park on some forest trails. And on a hot day, nothing beats a dip in the lake. Then, in the evening, barbecue with a glass of local wine or a cold beer.

    Unsere 5-köpfige Familie hat einige Tage auf der Ranch verbracht. Wir haben das Angebot für Reiturlaub in Nordpatagonien gebucht und für die zusätzlichen Tage noch einzelne Ausritte hinzugefügt. Liza und Ivan sowie ihre Kinder sind fantastische Gastgeber. Die Ausritte waren vielseitig und führten uns durch atemberaubende Landschaften zu fantastischen Aussichtspunkten. Man spürt bei Ivan seine große Leidenschaft für Pferde und seine Liebe zu Kindern. Das Essen sowie das Barbecue waren ausgezeichnet, und Liza ist eine hervorragende Köchin. Bei Problemen und Fragen haben sie uns immer sofort und unkompliziert geholfen. Wir können einen Aufenthalt auf der Ranch von Liza und Ivan von Herzen jedem empfehlen.
