From the snow-capped volcanoes of the Chilean Andes, through a pass in Icalma, to the open valleys of the Argentinean pampas, we'll explore and witness the landscape transition as we ride. Encounter smoking volcanoes, snowy peaks, deep blue mountain lakes, and dense, towering rainforests during this once in a lifetime experience.
On the Chilean side we'll experience steep mountains and endless virgin rainforests with our low, sturdy Chilean Criollo horses. Crossing the border, we'll witness the unique Argentinean gaucho lifestyle, the vast plains, and the dramatic cliffs where we can admire the majestic Patagonian condor.

    We enjoyed a fantastic trip! We were paired with our horse and went on a splendid horseback ride through the mountains. Along the way, we briefly stopped to stroll to a picturesque waterfall before continuing our journey on horseback. The vistas of the volcanoes were breathtaking, and our guide Mara provided insightful information about the local wildlife. Riding alongside the river and through the countryside was a memorable experience. This adventure in Pucón was definitely the highlight of our trip!
