The northwest of Argentina is a region with ancient traditions and amazing landscapes. 

We ride our Peruvian Paso horses through the heart of the Calchaquí Valley starting in Cachi, surrounded by fascinating landscapes and buildings of colonial architecture. 

We walk around the streets, visit the arts & crafts market and wineries that produce excellent wines. Our equestrian route takes us to Seclantás, Molino, Angastaco and San Carlos. 

The Andean landscapes and the colonial villages and towns along captivate our attention and amaze us. The riding tour finishes in San Carlos where we say goodbye to our companions, the horses. 

We drive to Cafayate, known for its excellent wines. The Calchaqui Valley impresses all travelers with its majestic beauty, its people and their ancestral traditions where pre-Colombian traditions still remain intact and you can learn about the culture and art of the indigenous people who live there.
