High views overlooking lago Lolog.
Jan 2020 • Couples
Four of us enjoyed this experience very much. Yvonne is an excellent guide and very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna on the property. We had one first time rider and Yvonne made sure she was comfortable the entire trip. Tremendous views after a pleasant ride thru forest. Horses were very gentle and safe. Finished up with a wonderful meal cooked in mud oven by Thomas. Empanadas, chori pan, tomatoes, lettuce, carrot salad, potatoes, onions, apples, and carne all out of the oven, then dulce de membrillo y batata y queso y dulce de leche y crema, fruit salad, all with beautiful view of lake, delightful!

Wonderful Experience!
Dec 2019
'm always very skeptical of horseback riding in different countries but this was an amazing experience. I arranged the ride with Yvonne who was unable to join us but her partner Raul was a delight. He has owned the land for many years and is a botanist who knows all the plants of the region and more. He and Diego guided us through their private property near lake Lago and it was absolutely gorgeous. This is a perfect experience for a novice or well seasoned rider. After our two hour ride, viewing many beautiful vistas we were able to sit and talk with Raul and his family over water and cake that was so graciously provided by Yvonne. It was truly a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend spending some time with these excellent people if you are near

Jan 2019 • Couples
We had a magnificent day with Yvonne, Raul & Diego. The horses we eager and responsive and we headed up the Mountain through wonderful forests, with expert advice on the the vegetation in the area. When we emerged from the forest we had views across the lakes and mountains for miles and miles. Marvelous photo opportunities on this ride and fantastic company. Highly recommended

Two absolutely perfect days!
Mar 2017 • Friends
We are so happy we found Yvonne and were able to go ride with her, it was the most amazing riding experience we ever had. The communication prior to the trip was excellent, all of our questions were answered and special requests in regards to the duration and dates were not a problem. Yvonne, Jose Luis and Raul are all lovely and we had a great time with them. The horses are excellent, very safe on the trails and fun to ride with!
On the trails, we were able to truly experience patagonias nature, topping it all of with the most beautiful views of Lago Lolog.
All in all, we enjoyed these two days so very much, thank you Yvonne, we hope to see you again some day!

Beautiful terrain!
Jan 2017 • Family
We enjoyed this ride with a very flexible guide. Nice road trip to the ranch, then varied beautiful terrain. The horses were ready to go and were excellent comfortable horses. The emails setting up the trip were prompt and accurate. The guide, Juan was fun and knowledgeable. Would definitely book again. A highlight of our trip to Argentina.

Springtime in the mountains
Oct 2016 • Solo
I had a lovely time exploring the area around Lago Lolog with Yvonne! It was early Spring and we were the first riders through many of the trails. There were surprises at every turn, from wildflowers and leaves just budding out, to newly downed trees and lingering snow on the trail, to a cat footprint the size of my fist (really!). Of course Yvonne led us through it all with aplomb! Twitter and Pepe were surefooted and sweet-tempered and the views were breathtaking. Yvonne also looked after every detail of my stay in San Martin, from finding me a lovely B&B (Las Viertentes Lodge) to a shopping excursion to airport transfers. Many thanks, Yvonne, for a wonderful holiday!

A wonderful day!
Mar 2015 • Couples
Yvonne and Raul will such gracious hosts and made it a really special day for me and my wife that we will remember for many years to come. Yvonne gave us a brief riding lesson in the morning before a ~3-hr ride on very gentle and responsive horses that were a true pleasure to ride. Then Raul the super-asador cooked us a delicious lunch, which we enjoyed with our new friends and a bottle of malbec. Thank you both, and we can't wait to come back!

Trailblazing in Lolog
Dec 2013 • Couples
My wife and I were lucky to find Yvonne and Raul while traveling for 3 weeks around Patagonia. We had hoped to end our trip with some sort of adventure involving horses, outdoor meals and wilderness areas far off the beaten path. What makes this experience so incredible is that it never felt like a "tour". In fact, after meeting Y & R for a beer in san martin we followed them up the dusty roads to their incredible farm, and within an hour we were settled in, drinking gin and tonics around a picnic table while the barbecue warmed up...and we felt immediately like friends and companions, planning a great trip we were going to take together.
We requested an intense overnight experience, and thankfully, Y & R gave us a solid prep course on horseback riding, safety etc, and we did a long day ride around the area to make sure we were all up to snuff before we set off into the national park. My wife had never been on horseback so between the sound coaching and the gentle giant named "twitter" we quickly gained confidence.
Having expressed interest in really getting "out there", Y & R planned a special excursion to find some trails that had only been talked about up until that point. So not only did we feel completely at home, but we got to choose our adventure and have direct input into where we went... This was amazing, especially considering my wife and i both hate organized tours... This was the opposite. We were on a trail finding mission with great people in a landscape that you can only begin to imagine without being there.
I smile to imagine anyone reading these reviews wondering about whether or not this is worth the time and energy.... You will not find a better way to experience this place, this food, these people and not to mention these beautiful animals that carry us up and above the mountains.
We will certainly be back!

An unforgettable, magical Patagonian experience
We were recommended to ride with Yvonne by my boyfriends parents who had ridden with her a few years back and exclaimed it was the best thing they had done for a very long time...so we had to take a visit.
We stayed in a cosy cabin perfectly situated over looking a beautiful lake and surrounded by the lush forests of Patagonia. We opted for the several day ride and enjoyed every moment of it. The food was absolutely delicious and gave us a taste of Argentinian cuisine. The accommodation was just lovely, with our own little sitting room upstairs and plenty of books to read (including copious National Geographic magazines dating back to the 60's). The rides were tranquil and we passed through much land covered with the pine trees the wonderful Raul had planted himself.
It was a magical experience to see the autumn leaves falling amidst this beautiful landscape and to ride majestic horses alongside some very kind and interesting people, which Yvonne and Raul certainly are.
I would highly recommend taking a ride with this company and even more so spending a few days with them to really get to know the land and the people.
Such a special place and memories! We won't forget your hospitality and your superb rides. Thank you to Yvonne and Raul!
