I am from Switzerland and arrived in Argentina more than 30 years ago to travel around on horseback. Since 2004 I have been living permanently in Patagonia, where I continue to work as an agronomist and farm manager. Great rider and connoisseur of the whole area of the Precordillera in Patagonia. Bilingual horseback riding guide. Tammy, my life and riding partner was born in Entre Rios, Argentina. Her life has always been related to the Argentinean countryside since her native Entre Rios where she started her relationship with horses at a very young age. She took different courses on equine activity and equine therapy, being also a ski instructor. 40 years ago she chose Bariloche to display her love for the mountains, the countryside and animals.

Tour provider's comments

This means that we return every day to the point of origin, so the course of our trail as well as the level of difficulty are adjustable to any group. The day trips may vary in duration from two to six hours, depending on our customers’ requests. We might explore the marvelous “Precordillera” and Andes cordillera of Patagonia or on horseback or by foot or simple hanging out on the riverbanks of Rio Chubut and thus in full enjoyment of the silence and charm of our singular destination.

    It was an exceptional experience in every way. A magical location, with its vast mountain range and the hospitality of Domi and Tammy, who have a deep love for horses. It's perfect for those seeking a break from everyday life to reconnect with nature and themselves. Domi and Tammy are wonderful hosts who make you feel at home. The candlelit dinners, the cozy wood-burning stove, and Tammy's homemade desserts give the place a special charm. Being able to customize our schedule, type of ride, and plans was exactly what I needed. For anyone seeking an unforgettable horseback riding experience with great horses, this is the perfect choice. I recommend it to anyone looking for a truly unique experience and the chance to explore remote places. Sharing a meal with friendly locals and discovering hidden lagoons in the mountains were unforgettable moments. And lastly...sleeping in the yurts and gazing at the stars that enhance the beauty of the mountain range was truly spectacular. The yurts are comfortable, spacious, warm, and blend in perfectly with the surroundings. They provide the ideal balance of privacy within this shared group experience.

    Das Alto Chubut Ride war eine einzigartige Erfahrung. Obwohl ich viel über die Weiten Patagoniens gelesen und gehört habe, war es sehr beeindruckend, Teil davon zu sein, während ich auf dem Rücken eines Pferdes saß, das jeden Schritt genau kannte. Die Natur war vielfältig und atemberaubend. Ich möchte Dominik und Tammy herzlich für ihre sorgfältige Organisation und ihr umfangreiches Fachwissen danken!

    We had a fantastic ride, mainly due to the excellent treatment, attention and food provided by Dominik and Tammy. The horses were all well-behaved, and the guide Migueo was very courteous. The landscapes were also stunning. Overall, we had a wonderful time and can't wait to come back.
