The Patagonia Trail Ride, Chile
PATAGONIA - TORRES DEL PAINE - ON HORSEBACK
“Galloping at the End of the World”
Southern Chile, 8 days – 7 nights – 5 days in the saddle – 1 glacier day
The beauty of Patagonia is hard to describe, SPECTACULAR would be the word if we had to use one!
Patagonia is one million square kilometers of untamed wilderness!
Few other places on earth are that huge and that rugged! The climate and the scenery one encounters but also the adventure one experiences on this ride is hallucinating!
Rugged and untamed, doesn’t that sound like the ideal riding destination?! Yes, we take you on one hell of a riding holiday to the most beautiful place in the world; TORRES DEL PAINE in Chilean Patagonia!
Riding your Chilean Criollo horse you will be dazzled by seeing the blue peaks of Torres del Paine, by the majestic glaciers, lakes, whitewater rivers, snow covered mountains and fjords.
You will meet and ride with the Patagonian gauchos, gallop in vast pampas on endless sheep farms, spend nights in cosy country houses and other nights in tents on the wild side, where you will fall asleep next to the campfire and wake up watching the Andes condor flying above your head. In other words, breathtaking views and a unequal equestrian experience await you at the end of the world!
You will spend 8 days in Patagonia of which 5 days in the saddle, ride through the National Park of Torres del Paine following the Serrano river to arrive at the next National Park Bernardo O’Higgens. On average you will be riding 7 hours per day on strong and courageous horses and will soon discover that they are a pleasure to ride with. Paul Coudenys, from Gaucho do Brasil, who has 20 years of experience in riding expeditions in Chile, will be your tripleader on this equestrian trip.
And last but not least, besides riding, you will be invited to jump on the vessel “Cutter 21 de Mayo” for a boat adventure from Monte Balmaceda to Puerto Natales, and see fjords along icy rivers that are home to dolphins and whales. Just like the previous days, your mouth will fall open from seeing all that wild beauty. But no worries, the delicious Chilean wine and the local cocktail Pisco Sour will help to close your mouth again :).
Welcome on the most beautiful trip in the world!
