Southern Cross Fazendas Ride

Southern Cross Fazendas Ride
Santa Catarina Brazil
Experience the true Brazil with all its rich customs and hospitality!

Superb riding, at all paces, at 3.000 to 5.500 ft elevations - surrounded by outstanding ever-changing scenery. Ride across wide open and hilly grass, bush and woodland with lush patches of magnificent South American Araucaria pine forest that frame the landscape. You will cross a great number of rivers, canter through lovely green valleys and circle the edges of the Serra Geral canyons. Animal and plant live of this parts of the tropical highlands is well preserved, specially what endemic birds like red-headed macaws, trogons, siriemas and corucacas and many others, are concerned. The area is also habitat of puma and you may be lucky to discover its trail, while he is far ahead or... behind you. Ride on top of the clouds or right amidst them at Morro da Igreja mountain. Meet local ranchers and gauchos or participate in one of the local rodeos or dances when you come off the ride.|

The region is scarcely populated by small dairy farms and cattle ranches that seem almost lost in the vastness of the land. This is the home of the Mountain Gauchos and horsemen. They have conserved and show proudly their traditions. On weekends, folks gather in the rustic galpões, the barn and animal shelters of the farmhouse and dance and sing while an opulent Churrasco BBQ is prepared at the open fireplace.

 Beautiful horses and superb horsemanship are on display at the frequent rodeos, where people, typically dressed, show up to dance to the Chamamê, Xote or Vanerão, the Brazilian rooted country music, live, of course. Our guests will visit, whenever fitting with logistics, these traditional events and enjoy great hospitality and fun there.
