Our ride starts in the Lerma Valley, a rich land of vibrant colours.

Along the way, we will come across the many rivers that flow downhill to irrigate the fertile valley floor where beans, tobacco, corn and soybeans grow, and that empty into the Cabra Corral Dam.

Then we will be in the Calchaqui Valleys, an almost lunar landscape dotted with small colonial villages that seem to be frozen in time. Seize the opportunity to plunge into gaucho culture and share in local traditions.

Thus, we will ride from village to village – Cachi, Seclantás, Molinos, Angastaco and Cafayate – following dirt roads and river gorges, where the dramatic rock landscape won’t cease to amaze us.

A horseback journey full of contrasts where we can discover the natural and cultural wealth of northern Argentina.

Why settle for less when you can explore a one-of-a-kind place, cross deserts of a thousand colours and discover the secrets of an ancient culture?
