Family day at Finca San Ignacio with picnic lunch
Are you ready to live a fascinating family experience? In this tour we will enjoy a day in the countryside, in a unique natural environment, very close to the city.
Estancia Andina San Ignacio is a place that perfectly combines mountains and proximity. It is located only 16 km from the center of Mendoza, in the middle of the Andes foothills.
We will pick up the whole family from their lodging at mid-morning to go to an area known as El Challao. On the way, our guide will explain in a didactic and entertaining way what the experience consists of. In 25 minutes we will learn about the biodiversity that we will find in the Precordillera, the climate of Mendoza and a bit of our history.
Upon arrival at Estancia San Ignacio we will be welcomed with warm pancakes and some mates. The fresh mountain air and the taste of our traditional infusion will be the best welcome. We will take some time to walk around the estancia and enjoy, together with the children, the animals that live in this wonderful place. We will see the city in the distance and forget for a few hours the daily hustle and bustle to lose ourselves in the ancestral silence of the Andes.
Once we have connected with nature, we will go out to explore the mountain. We can do it on horseback or trekking through the trails. Either way will be perfect to have fun. We will see different species of native fauna such as black eagles, condors and foxes and we will also learn about the local flora and its properties.
On the way back, a delicious picnic lunch will be waiting for us. We will sit in a specially prepared place to enjoy an exclusive picnic among the mountains. In the basket we will find regional dishes and a menu for children with unique flavors of our culinary culture. We will accompany the meal with a good wine from Mendoza and refreshing juices for adults and children to toast the unforgettable moments shared.
Surrounded by mountains and eating in the middle of nature we will say goodbye to Estancia San Ignacio.
Do you know what regenerative rural tourism is? It is to live an experience in a completely natural environment being aware of the care of the environment, improving the flora, fauna and land use.
