After booking our trip to Patagonia, my girlfriend and I knew we wanted to ride horses while in the region. This experience fit the billing and exceeded expectations. Luciano was easy to communicate with despite the language barrier, and he led us on a beautiful tour that felt as if we had been transported to another time and place. We... More

We loved this experience! The scenery and ride blew us away, with incredible views and mountain trails. Glaciers, lakes, cows, condors, guanacos, and then a rustic lunch and wine over a fire. We loved every second. Luciano, the owner and host, was easy to work with despite language barriers. And he did a good job matching horses to riders. We... More

Super ballade de deux jours en patagonie. Les chevaux sont adaptés à tous les types de niveau. Arrêt dans un petit gîte, seul au monde oú Luciano nous a fait un délicieux repas. Découverte de beaux paysages. Luciano est très accueillant et a été aux petits soins avec nous. Un séjour inoubliable. An amazing two day trip in patagonia. Luciano... More

Such a fantastic experience! I didn't want it to end. Luciano and his helper Gabriella were wonderful campaigns that day - offering riding tips and enduring my terrible Spanish. They looked after us well from the moment we were picked up from our hostel in El Calafate. I've already recommended to a friend who went to El Calafate - who... More

This was a truly perfect day: the landscape is spectacular, the horses are sweet and patient, and Luciano is a wonderful host and guide. Even a little light rain turned into a gift when rainbows appeared in the sky: it really doesn’t get any better than riding a horse under a rainbow in Patagonia!

We have just come back from a 2-day gabalgata to the Chilean border and we have loved every minute of it. The landscape was spectacular and wild, the horses very easy to ride but the track also fine for experienced riders. And the best was the company's owner, Luciano, who took care of us with so much gentleness and efficiency.... More

We made this tour and it was really nice. It was just us with the tour guide in the beautiful Landscape around Lago Roca. Lunch was also nice and very chilled near a river where we had a small BBQ. The Guide was very passionate about his horses and explained everything well. We definitely recommend this Trip!

The horseback ride was beautiful with views of mountains, a glacier in the distance and a beautiful valley. The horses were easy to manage. Luciano prepared a delcious lunch. Though Luciano was nice he was also uncommuicative (and I speak Spanish.) At one time he left the group for ten minutes without giving an explanation. He will answer any question... More

Luciano is a great guy who takes his time and obviously has a lot of love for his horses. It's about an hour drive to the ranch. We then rode through slightly mountainy area where you have a beautiful view of the mountains and the perito Moreno (it's a farsight). The silence and nature around you really makes you feel...
