Riding the creolle horses in this part of Patagonia feels good! Horses are tame, easy.
Staff is professional, friendly and trully “gente de campo" who have been working the land for generations to generations. We want to share with you a part of our passion for nature, horses and living outdoors .
While riding a horse people get relaxed and happier. And if the Volcan Osorno and Calbuco scenery are part of the landscape even better! Rides last for 2.30 hours going across green pastures, ancient forest, open ground with views to the mountains in wide trails. After a security briefing horse will be assigned and we will begin the ride along the grasslands of the fundo across open ground. Eventually we reach an ancient green forest where we will be able to learn about the plants and trees, your guide will happily share with you interesting information about the working ranch, production, sustainability as well as the hard work during winter times.
