Description

On this tour, you will get to see some of Mendoza's most amazing views while riding horseback on stunning Argentine horses! Your Local Guide Luz and her family breed horses at their family estancia (or ranch), located in the Uco Valley, one of the main wine regions in Mendoza Province. The ranch is home to some of the most amazing views of the Andes Mountains, as well as a gorgeous vineyard where malbec grapes can be seen growing. Luz will take you around the estancia, showing off the beautiful views and teach you everything there is to know about country life in the Uco Valley, home of some of the best Malbecs that Argentina has to offer. Luz has helped to raise and train all the horses you'll be riding, all of which were born and raised in the estancia. The horses on Luz's family estancia are good teachers if you're a beginner rider, and great companions for expert riders! After the ride, you'll enjoy some tasty home-cooked empanadas while the asado (Argentine barbecue) begins. Enjoy some delicious traditional Argentine wines as you dine like a true Argentine with incredible meats and fixings. After the asado, you'll spend some quality time around the bonfire taking in this age-old Argentine tradition.
