Horseback riding in these valleys and river gorges is like riding through history. Our surefooted Peruvian horses allow us to discover untraveled paths while admiring nature’s generosity.

This program begins in the City of Salta, nicknamed “Salta, the Beautiful” in Argentina. 

Our ride to the heart of the Quebrada de Humahuaca begins in El Volcán.

We will head to Purmamarca and the spectacular Hill of Seven Colours, a landscape that seems hand-painted by the same local artists.

Our next stop is Tilcara, a village steeped in pre-Hispanic tradition. Let local people surprise you with their fascinating stories about the Pachamama – our Mother Earth.

You will discover that these moments are what feed your traveller’s soul and you will understand why La Quebrada de Humahuaca was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

We believe this is one of those trips that every true rider should take at least once in their lifetime. Will you let us be your guide on this adventure?
