Creole Horseback Riding: day of Argentinean Tradition
In this horseback ride you will enjoy the best views of the Andes mountain range on horseback. An ideal excursion to experience nature with animals that know the terrain perfectly.
This economic tour will start early in the morning. We will meet with a group of tourists from all over the world and together we will head to the mountain. There we will live this incredible experience.
When we arrive at the place where we will begin the journey, we will be welcomed by the baqueanos, in the stable, with everything ready. The horses have different types of saddles, padded saddle pads and leather reins to control the ride. During the ride, you will notice that this equipment will provide you with comfort and will make the ride more pleasant. Once mounted, we will begin to enjoy the scenery.
Our specialized guides will take us through mountain trails. We will reach natural viewpoints where we will have an incredible view of the Cordón del Plata. We will discover springs of pure water and we will see different species of native fauna such as black eagles, condors and foxes. We will also learn about the local flora and its properties. We will connect with nature riding quiet animals.
After 2 hours of riding we will return to our starting point. We will leave the horses in the stable and have time for lunch. After relaxing, we will return to the city to continue exploring Mendoza.
From the top of the horse everything looks different. You will have another point of view of the mountain and you will be able to enjoy every detail of the landscape.
Mendoza is a desert and water is a vital resource for its productive development, that is why in SAK Wine & Travel we contribute with its care and good use in every trip we plan. We know that sustainable tourism is the way to build a better world, respectful of people and their environment. By traveling with us you are joining our sustainable philosophy.
