Day 1: Arrival 
Pick up in the morning at Buenos Aires International Airport and transfer to Capilla del Señor in the Pampas (1.5-2 h drive).
Lunch on arrival at the estancia. In the afternoon, you go on your first ride. Your guide will introduce you to the Argentine horse tack and riding style. We will ride the surroundings farmlands. 
In the evening, a hearty Argentine dinner awaits.
Meals included: Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Lodge

Day 2: Polo
Your visit to Argentina would not be complete without experiencing Polo. Polo is a sport intimately linked to Argentina, its countryside and its people.
Today we will focus on the sport in a fun, easy going way and at your own pace. If you have the riding skills and enthusiasm, this is the perfect opportunity to embed in a sport from which there is no way out. For introduction to the sport or improvement of your skills, you will have lessons of its well kept secrets.
You will also have the chance to interact with local players.
Lunch at the polo fields and dinner at the lodge. 
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Lodge

Day 3: Paraná River Ride
We will ride in a privately owned wildlife reserve that sits by the huge Paraná river. This river is 2500 miles long and its name means “as big as the sea” in the local Indian language. This is the second largest river in South America (second to the Amazon river) and the water flowing into the Atlantic Ocean roughly equals the Mississippi river. Picnic on the river banks. Dinner at the lodge.  
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Lodge

Day 4: El Tatú Ride
Today, we ride the farmlands following the old road to San Antonio de Areco. In the old days, this was the road gauchos used, to ride their horses to town.
Now, a new road gets the car traffic and ours is very much forgotten. On the way, we will stop at a small rural school and an old church called El Tatú (The Armadillo) where we stop for our picnic. We will be back to the lodge for dinner.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Lodge

Day 5: Estancia
After breakfast we transfer you to a beautiful 19th Century Estancia for riding and cattle work. There are a few activities, typical of an Argentine Estancia to enjoy, in case you prefer not to engage in full day riding: folk music, “Doma India” (Argentinian horse whispering), hiking, cycling and bird watching.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Estancia

Day 6: San Antonio de Areco
After breakfast, we will visit San Antonio de Areco. This town is very proud of its gaucho spirit, in the heart of the Pampas. We will visit a couple of silversmiths who keep alive this skill dating back from the old days. The gaucho museum in town is also worth paying a visit.
We will stop for lunch at one of the old time gaucho restaurants. Then, we leave Areco and head to Buenos Aires. Hotel check in and free time to wander around the city, go shopping or visit museums. Optional: Tango Show with dinner and a tango lesson.

Meals included: Breakfast
