About
Ritoque Expediciones arose from the efforts of Sebastian Lara, horse breeder for all his life, and Maria Elena Rodriguez, dedicated to Pubic Relations, as a way to keep their way of living next to horses and nature and sharing this experience with people.Our objective is to allow Chileans and foreigners to enjoy outstanding nature locations. Our aim in each one of our trips is that our clients get to know as well as possible the flora, fauna and culture of the places that we visit. Our clients will, comfortably and safely, make a special connection with the people and nature of the area.We are part of the Guía de Turismo Rural (Countryside Tourism Guide) of the V region of Chile, supported by Sernatur (Nacional Tourism Service) since 2005; and we received the prize “Premio Sernatur a la Gestión Emprendimiento Turístico 2006”.We are located 3 kilometers north from Concón, on the highway to Quintero. Only 30 kilometres north from Valparaíso, and only two hours from SantiagoRitoque Expediciones nace hace 8 años de la inquietud de Sebastián Lara y María Elena Rodríguez, por mantener un estilo de vida cercano a la naturaleza y los animales. Y compartirla con quienes estuvieran interesados en vivir una experiencia cercana a la vida de naturaleza. Nuestra misión es que chilenos y extranjeros puedan disfrutar de lugares de naturaleza exuberantes en belleza y quietud. Compartimos nuestra forma de cocina, que se caracteriza por comida chilena, generalmente asados siempre alrededor de una gran fogata! Trabajamos con grupos de diverso tamaño, montados sobre un caballo, según se requiera. Organizamos eventos al aire libre, ofreciendo servicio de comidas que montamos en el lugar de la actividad, ya sea en medio de las dunas o a orillas del Estero Mantagua, etc..Generalmente contamos con guías bilingües inglés – español que acompañan a nuestros clientes durante el recorrido. Formamos parte de la Guía de Turismo Rural de la V Región, apoyados por Sernatur desde el 2005 hasta la fecha y recibimos el Premio Sernatur a la Gestión y Emprendimiento Turístico 2006.

Amazing day trip from Santiago!
Jan 2019 • Business
Three of us went from our layover hotel in Santiago for the afternoon to ride horses with Sebastian and his crew. We were able to reserve our time and speak with Sebastián ahead of time using what’s app (it’s the same number from the Ritoque Expeditions instagram page). We didn’t have as much time to do the three hour trek, so they were able to customize it to our needs. Their prices are very good, they are excellent with any skill level, and they let you decide how you want to ride and what you want to do while riding. I highly recommend!!!

Become a pro in Horseback Riding in no time at all!
Mar 2018 • Couples
Being absolute amateurs we had booked a two hour ride to get a feel for what it means to explore the area north of Viña del Mar on a horseback. And what a deepdive into this sport it was! From the first cautious steps to trotting and finally letting all our spirits fly high while galopping along the beach.
Sebastián is a relaxed instructor with tons of anecdotes that make the riding a fun social experience. Very recommendable is Lisa: charming, full of fun and a wonderful way to make you feel comfortable.

Oct 2016 • Business
Arranged this day as me and three people had a weekend free while working nearby. Hector and his family made us feel very welcome. The day was very eventful, feom seeing the start of a forest fire, sea lion on the beech, truck stuck on a train line and finally watching one of hectors cats give birth. Amazing day, amazing family. Would recommend this to anyone

Awesome place to horseback and enjoy and uninterrupted day of family bonding. My 9 and 13 thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Parrilla afterwards was well worth it.

Perfect and worth every penny!
Mar 2016 • Family
I took my 12 year old daughter to Chile for the first time this year. The main thing she wanted to do was ride a horse on the beach or country, with a nice dog running next to us. This is exactly what she got and more. There is just not enough to describe the entire experience. We have never been on a horse before and we're accompanied by another family that had lots of experience and wanted to gallop. We both were pleased, they took the time to gallop with them while teaching my daughter how to also gallop and a nice boy help me and waited for me the entire time while telling me the most interesting stories.
We had a nice break and snack in the middle of the trip. We went thru beautiful forests, dunes, beaches. It was perfect. They were super friendly and patient.
After coming back we had a very nice lunch at the farm while enjoying the view of farm animals. My daughter was so happy. Finally, they were so kind to drive me all the way to town when my plans to get a ride back failed.
Can't wait to bring the entire family someday and take the on this tour again.

DIA INCREIBLE!!! Incredible day
May 2016 • Couples
spent three days in Valparaiso and wanted to visit Concon for the day to see the sand dunes. somehow I stumbled upon Ritoque horseback riding day and found a phone number to call. I had not seen any updated reviews and was worried Ritoque Expeditions was no longer functioning but I booked it anyways. I am so happy I did!! what a phenomenal day. Sebastian the host met us at the gas station and picked us up and took us to his home to meet the horses and his other tour guide Hannah. they were both very patient as we had never ridden horses and explained everything we had to do. The day progressed into sand dunes, forest and beach. I cannot say enough how amazing this day was!!! Sebastian and Hannah were excellent hosta It was the best day trip/adventure/ tour we have ever booked in our time traveling. thank you Sebastian and Hannah for the wonderful day!!

Pasamos tres dias en Valpo y queriamos conocer las dunas en Concon. Encontramos Ritoque Expediciones y no sabiamos si iba ser un buen tur. Fue un dia increible, seguimos contentos de haber contactado a Sebastian para hacer esta cabalgata. Sebastian fue un anfitrion increible. Nos recogio en La Copec de Concon y nos llevo en su carro hasta su finca. Ahi conocimos a los caballos y Hannah su ayudante y Sebastian nos explico como montar a caballo y fue muy paciente con nosotros ya que ibamos con miedo. Fueron tres horas espectaculares de cabalgata en las dunas, playa y humedal. Este es el mejor tur y el mejor guia que hemos tenido en todo nuestro tiempo viajando. De los tres dias en la region de Valpo este fue el mejor dia. no duden en contactar a Sebastian y hacer este plan. Nosotros escogimos el plan con un snack pero se puede con asado en la casa de Sebastian. mil gracias por el dia tan increible!!!! si volvemos a la region volveremos de una!!!
