Chile, Patagonia

Our horseback ride in Patagonia was provided by Tierra Patagonia one of the worlds top hotels 

We started from Estancia Tercera Barranca.

 

                                    The estancia is reached via a beautiful drive along the lake from Tierra Patagonia with about 20,000 acres .The horseback adventure allowed us  to meet authentic Baqueanos – Patagonian cowboys – who know the land inside out,

The Baqueanos have lived here for generations and are real working cowboys or should I say cowmen they trained for both beginners and experts. our personal guide and the Baqueano below

This ride requires previous riding experience, as it is not on a marked trail. We met our horses below and saddled up, ready for an adventure on horseback through mixed terrain and glorious scenery.
