My mom and I did a lot in our short time in El Calafate, but this experience was our favorite. We wanted a half-day experience on a typical Argentine ranch that included riding horses, and Cabalgata del Glaciar exceeded our expectations. Our group was small (four visitors, two guides), and our guides were friendly and informative, making our time seem... More

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic time on this trip! The views of the glacier and surrounding landscape were fantastic, and the lunch really hit the spot!

Guides spoke no English, one of our horses had an obvious bad hoof, the other one very undisciplined. Guides failed to communicate to half group we should canter so we stood by and missed it, but it was very short anyway. Scenery good though and nice lunch but we been to much better riding experiences elsewhere.

We have driven around 1hr to the estancia where... More

The guides were nice but spoke next to no English. While the view was pretty it was a truly a walk, not even much trotting. Lunch was decent but plain. Not the highlight of the trip by a wide margin... just another way to view the glacier.

Had a great time. Would recommend this trip. Everyone was very friendly. Great views...like being in a painting. Big bottle of wine and steak sandwiches for lunch. Horses were well behaved. Do it!

Nice trip, the guide is a nice person and the landscape is amazing...the horses are really calm and they obey accordingly...there is a pic nic in the middle of the way (included to the price) and you really feel in touch with nature.....I´d go again for sure!

I think this was seen in the distance while riding on horses with Cabalgata en Patagonia. If my memory is not correct, it was still a great ride around Lago Argentino and we really like the purveyors.
