The Northern Trail Ride, Argentina
Be prepared for Big Landscapes, Amazing Horses, Culture Alive, Historic Accommodations and Winetasting!
Argentina’s hardscrabble northwest sits beneath the mighty snowcapped Andes, where a confluence of wind, water, ice and time has conjured weird, wonderful rockscapes, streaked with minerals and glowing red in the sun. Nature speaks powerfully here, lending the region a certain mystery.
It is Argentina’s most seductive rural zone, a winning combination of rugged landscapes, traditional weavers' workshops, striking adobe villages, top vineyards, and Gaucho tradition while at the same time there is a visible pre-Columbian influence of Indigenous Argentina. The local people wonderfully managed to conserve this mixed Colonial-Indigenous heritage of the region.
On average you will be riding about 5 hours a day on energetic and smooth gaited Peruvian Paso Horses.
you will have discovered Western-movie-like landscapes, colonial villages and cities, Indigenous places, amazing gastronomy, fantastic wines, a rare horse breed and the true cultural richness of Argentina of the beaten track.
The local people wonderfully managed to conserve this mixed Colonial-Indigenous heritage of the region.
The local culture, however, is a blend of Spanish and gaucho (mestizo, criollo, both indigenous and non-indigenous) traditions, lending the city a distinctive identity.
