Immerse yourself in the way of life at an estancia (Argentinian farm), surrounded by idyllic Argentinian landscape and learn to horse ride like a Gaucho.
The estancia is a typical farm run by an Argentinian family who live on agriculture, apiculture and cattle. They also grow lemons, oranges pecan nuts and plums.
The estancia offers different routes to ride with native horses. Riding on a native horse will allow you to discover the Argentinian fields in the traditional Gaucho way and if you choose the longer option you will also visit a nearby Gaucho village.
A Gaucho style horseback riding class is included with all the ride options.
After the ride, a delicious tea or mate (traditional Argentinian beverage) with some pastries will be waiting for you at the estancia.
We also offer you the option to take an scenic walk to Santa Coloma, a beautiful colonial village, where we will visit the church and a pulperia (a traditional Gaucho bar).
If you prefer you can do a guided tour to San Antonio de Areco, where you will find out lots of interesting information about the history and culture of the village. We will also visit a small site where craftsmen are working the leather in the traditional way and we will also see silversmiths at work.
If you don´t want to ride a horse there are several walking options or an option to enter in contact with the horses.
With this option you will feed the horses, wash them and walk them out on the fields in a relaxing way.
You can also stay overnight and enjoy a special evening in the countryside.
You will enjoy the quietness of the Argentinian countryside, a delicious asado (BBQ) for dinner, the starry sky and the pleasure of drinking an excellent glass of wine near the fireplace in winter.
