Don your cowboy boots and grab your sense of adventure for a hands-on immersion into the Gaucho lifestyle. Riding alongside these Argentinian cowboys is not only a privilege but an opportunity to experience a culture steeped in tradition. Giddy up!
Whether you’re a novice rider or an experienced equestrian, riding with gauchos in Argentina offers something for everyone. Choose from gentle day rides with an asado (BBQ) lunch, to longer stays on authentic working estancias – where you’ll ride alongside and round-up cattle. For serious riders we can arrange exhilarating seven-day overland horse safaris in Patagonia, where breath-taking views of glacial lakes and the snow-capped Andes will serve as the backdrop.
The gaucho way of life has existed for over three centuries and began in The Pampas – the lush, fertile flatlands that include Buenos Aires, La Pampa, Santa Fe, Entre Ríos and Córdoba. Celebrated for their solitary and nomadic lifestyles, superb horsemanship and elaborate attire, the gaucho culture is deeply rooted in the country’s history and still very much alive today.
