Mountains and Wine Country Ride


Mountains and Wine Country Ride
Cordoba/Mendoza Argentina
We will ride into the impressive Mount Aconcagua region - here you will find the tallest mountains in America, including the highest peak, the Aconcagua (23 200 ft.).  This is a mecca of mountaineering as you ride at 10 000 ft. high, through narrow trails, past unspoiled valleys and colorful creeks. It is in these uninhabited and isolated places, only accessible by horseback, where huge herds of  furry guanacos roam freely and the imposing Andean condor nests. Only in the most remote places like these you can enjoy the privilege of watching these native animals at complete ease.

This is also a place of great historical merit. In 1817, the Los Andes Army crossed through this exact location. They traveled from Argentina to liberate the people of Chile from the Spanish Conquistadors. We will take a glimpse into the titanic effort our Fathers of Independence provided towards their freedom.

As the sun sets, the spectacular stars of the southern hemisphere will begin to cover the sky. Relaxing at the mountain lodge with its peaceful atmosphere as you share an intimate cup of coffee, tea or Argentine mate with fellow travelers. Together it all creates the most ideal ambiance, allowing us to feel the timeless spirit of nature and the wilderness around us.

Our last day will be purely gourmet: wine making and tasting and a superb lunch. We will visit Luján de Cuyo, an area is now known worldwide for producing several of Argentina’s very best wines, including malbec.

"We reach the hotel after a day in the wilderness. We will never forget our new friends and the horses. The evening star comes out as night shows up. It is only the first of the million stars that lighten the clearer sky of the southern hemisphere. Long conversations recreate the incredible day gone by".
