Owner description: We are descendants of original settlers, and live less than 10 miles from the town centre.We offer a guided tour on horseback, with exepctional views of the Patagonian steppe, mountains and river valley. After the ride we will treat you to a traditional Argentinian asado (barbecue). We promise that you will have an unforgettable day! A 14 km del centro civico, dentro del Parque Nacional Nahuel Huapi, se encuentra el establecimiento de la familia Haneck, antiguos pobladores de la zona (desde 1897). En la transicion del bosque a la estepa Patagonica los visitantes podran disfrutar de un autentico dia de naturaleza y tranquilidad. En la cabalgata guiada se aprecian los cerros "La Buitrera" y "Carbon", el valle del rio Nirihuau y una amplia cadena montanosa de la Cordillera de los Andes. Un agradable paseo de dos horas aprox. Atravesando un gran mallin y un bosque mixto de nires, retamos, palo piche, radales. etc. Atendido por sus duenos.

Visited on 30th dec 2013. We were picked up by Monica at our hostel and were warmly welcomed. The hole family was very kind, helpful and interested. We really felt like members of the family that day!!
By the time we came they had 18 horses but expected a new foal any moment. Our two horses were really good ones and we had two fabulous rides. The views of the open space were great. For lunch we returned to the estancia for an excellent asado (the meat was sooo good!). After our second ride we returned for delicious cakes.
It was just a perfect day and definitely recommend you to go horseback riding with the Haneck family!

Great ride, great views and great after ride meal.

The entire experience was anchored by the Haneck family and their long standing history in the area. There generations of the nicest people you will ever meet.

Visited in December 2013 with my friend, and it was one of our best experinces in a trip of 3 monthes in South America.

The horse riding was magnificent: the guides were very kind and helpful, the views of the open spaces and the farm were beautiful, and the ride was long and worth every peso that we paid for it.

When we came back from the ride, we were hosted with the farmer's family, and had a big, home-made deliciuse meal that the hosters cooked for us.

In summery: our best experience in bariloche, highly recommended.

The Haneck family ranch for horseback riding is a "must do" if you have come all this way to Bariloche. A very friendly fellow, Pancho(English speaking), came to pick up my boyfriend and I at our hotel. On the ride to the ranch which is located in the middle of Nahuel Huapi national park, We learned that Pancho and his family have own this land in the reserve for generations, back from the 1800's, long before it became a national park. After we arrived from a 30 minute ride from city center, we were greeted by warm hugs and kisses by Pancho's entire family inside their beautiful and very clean home. Three generations all together. His papa, mama, hermana and her adorable darling children. Impeccable hospitality. A very authentic, non "Disneyland experience".

So lets get back to the horseback riding since that's what we came here for... John and I booked a full day ride. I had the chance to ride on 3 different horses, Gringo, Mora and Hildago. They were all well trained horses; I felt very safe. It was my first horseback experience and I can tell all 3 horses have very different personalities just like all of us humans. They have 18 horses all together. I may favor one over the others but you just have to experience them for yourself. Their massive private stretch of land in this national park is breathtakingly stunning. I envy the Haneck family's lifestyle.

Last but not the least is their 5 star lunch (which is included with the horseback ride). Their BBQ consists of chorizo, steak, lamb and chicken. Massive portions along with a delicious variety of vegetable side dishes and red wine. This is all prepared and cooked by the Haneck family themselves. The dessert was also amazing. This was one of the very best authentic meals I've had in Argentina. Everything was served family style. Very cozy. We loved that the entire family sat down to eat with us at the table.

After our second ride (still full from the delicious lunch)...they served us more food. Delicious torta and puff pastry with juices, teas and coffee.

I can't think of anything more I'd ask for from a horseback riding experience. 5 stars for the horseback adventure, hospitality and food. They really should be getting 15 stars. Love, loove the Calbagatas Haneck experience.

The horse riding tours by the Haneck family are definitely recommendable. We did a half day tour with bbq in July and loved it. The family is very nice, horses and landscape are beautiful (even in winter) and the bbq afterwards is just delicious.
