WHO CAN EXPERIENCE THIS?
Everyone – From families with kids to groups of friends or by your own.
WHO IS BEHIND THE ADVENTURE?
In the words of the man himself: “I’m Dario Gallardo, a third-generation descendant of gauchos and horse breeders in my region Corrientes. In 2001, I decided to share my passion for horses and Argentinian customs by organizing horse-riding adventures and authentic cultural experiences”.
WHAT TO EXPECT?
Ride through the centenary steps of the gauchos, cross rivers, overlook amazing valleys, hot springs and so much more – you will feel the magic of this vastness and you will come to understand why they have so much mythical power. Fall in love with life again and value nature and moments.
Gaucho Dario Gallardo or “horse whisperer” as we call him, there is nobody with more knowledge than him.Plus an amazing team of local gauchos that live on the mountain, so basically they are at home, the mountains are their companion day and night. And also this way you will support local communities and real people with real knowledge of their territory
The magic that goes along with you – They are mountain horses, well trained and very used to crossing the Andes. All the equipment for the horse is well kept and very secure. They are dosil and pure souls.
HOW A NORMAL DA Y CROSSING THE ANDES GOES
Wake up under the magic sky or tent – an amazing and complete breakfast will be ready to boost your energy.
Horses are ready for you to start your 5 to 6 hours horse riding through the magical views, no one view is the same – Half-way break for lunch (they always surprise you) then back on your horse to reach the final destination for the day. Whilst you are getting to relax or explore the area, the gauchos will be preparing the spectacular bonfire, putting up the tents and uncorking the first wine of the night. Dinner will be ready and in front of the fire under the sky full of stars, and guitars being played in the background, you will be thanking life for such an experience.
