Horseback Riding Rancho Viejo with asado argentino
The best views of the Andes Mountains can be appreciated in this horseback ride in Rancho Viejo. An ideal excursion to leave the noise of the city behind and be part of Mendoza’s landscapes.
In a private vehicle just for you and your travel companions we will get to Maipú, the first wine region of Mendoza. In this circuit through Lunlunta, we will visit the “ranch” located in a privileged area. It consists of a farm with more than 100 hectares, where we will be able to ride on horseback through the different fields and its vineyards, olive groves, fruit and vegetable plantations.
Our tour will start very early in the morning to get to “Rancho Viejo” where all the equipment will be waiting for us and the best guide of our specialized “baqueanos”.
In this outing, we will be able to connect with Malbec and Cabernet plantations, as well as with the traditions and customs of the people. After a brief tour through the vineyards, the horseback ride will take the trails that border the Mendoza River, which will take us to the foot of the precordillera, where it will be possible to appreciate the different peaks of the mountain range known as “El Cordón del Plata”.
By noon, we will return to “Rancho Viejo” where we will enjoy a regional lunch. There, an exquisite traditional “asado” will be waiting for us with some local varietals. We will be able to pair the real Argentinian meat with the best of Mendoza wine. But this will not be just another lunch, here we will get to know the customs of our gaucho host, who will open the doors of his house and invite us to share the table with delicacies and anecdotes.
This experience is designed as an exclusive activity for the whole family, where we can find harmony with nature and wildlife, fused with the traditional flavors of food cooked over an open fire. After this experience, you will be able to feel in your own skin, the customs and traditions of the people who love the land and its bounties.
At SAK Wine & Travel we want our trips to be a transforming experience for those who visit us and we know that sustainable tourism is the tool to achieve it. That is why in every excursion you do with us you are contributing to the care of Mendoza’s water.
