Best thing we did in El Calafate

I had an amazing time with Lucho riding out towards the glacier and back. Would recommend to any adventurous spirit wanting to spend some time exploring Patagonia.

A magical horse ride in beautiful scenery and made to feel like a special guest by Luciano who looked after us and the horses so very well. I didnt want to leave at the end of the day and if I am ever lucky enough to be back in Patagonia I would love to go again on this wonderful exhilarating... More

This was our best outdoor trip in Patagonia. Luciano picked us up at precisely at 8:30am, and along with one other couple, drove us to the the glacier park, but at the mountain, minus hundreds of tourists. Along the way, we stopped to watch eagles on the road, foxes and condors. We saddled up at a. 1935 era ranch, then... More

We did a four day tour. We formed our own group of four, but agreed to let other people in, in return for a discount. We almost ended up paying more than the agreed price without the extra guy, because Luciano misinterpreted his own mail. But he was very accommodating, and without problem we paid what was agreed. I guess... More

The reason to visit El Calafate is to see and enjoy the Glaciers and this one has great view. No matter what I say it is great and breath taking.

Loved this day from start to finish - Luciano is lovely and the horses were without exception wonderful to ride. The scenery is beautiful and the asado lunch tasted great! Highly recommend this for an inside view into the national park.

This was possibly the best activity we did in our three days in El Calafate; being in that location with such a small group (5 including the guide) felt like we were the only people in the world! It was magical! The horses were great, well cared for and obedient, and Luciano was extremely friendly and helpful. He cooked us... More

We went horseback riding in El Calafate with Cabalgatas del Glaciar. Luciano, the guide, is a very nice person and he was really helpful. We usually go horsebak riding everywhere we visit, and this was a unique experience. The landscapes and views are breathtaking and the food is delicious and included in the price (full day excursion)

Beautiful scenery, excellent guide, good lunch, everything was perfect. Would definitely recommend the day's pony trekking with Luciano as an alternative way to see the glacier! Unforgettable.

Luciano was nice with us for the first hours, then progressively became grumpy, silent (he doesn't speak a word of english and wouldn't even try to start a discussion in spanish) and bored for 5 days. Considering the very high price of the trip, it would have been nice to inform us that we were gonna stay in abandoned refuges... More
