Gaucho Day Trip from Buenos Aires: Santa Susana Ranch
From $131.00
This gaucho day trip from Buenos Aires provides a close-up look at a traditional cowboy ranch, Estancia Santa Susana, less than two hours from Buenos Aires. On this tour, experience gaucho life and culture on a ranch tour, saddle up for a horseback ride, tuck into a hearty asado barbecue, and enjoy live entertainment, including folk music, tango, and a horsemanship display.
What to Expect

Your tour begins with pickup from your central Buenos Aires hotel and a transfer to Estancia Santa Susana by air-conditioned minivan.

The fiesta atmosphere starts when you arrive and are greeted with Argentine wine and homemade empanadas. Set out on a tour of the ranch and meet the gauchos, Argentina’s own version of the American cowboy. Depending on your preference, either enjoy a horseback ride or a horse-drawn carriage ride around the ranch.

After working up an appetite, tuck into a delicious barbecue lunch including a selection of meats and salads, accompanied by Malbec wine. Finish with sweet pastries and traditional yerba mate.

During the meal, enjoy a variety of live entertainment, including folk music and dancing, a tango demonstration, and a boleadoras show with weapon-throwing. Finally, the gauchos mount up for a spectacular horseback performance, showing off daring stunts, animal herding, and racing.

Your tour ends back in downtown Buenos Aires.
