What to Bring for Estancia Getaway - San Martin

In the summer months the weather is generally hot and dry during the day with a maximum temperature between 22 and 35 deg. C. As we are at 700m, it always cools down at night, generally to between 5 and 10 deg. C... It rarely rains - however it is necessary to be prepared with adequate raingear. It is strongly recommended that you should bring your own riding helmet although we can lend if necessary.

The best way to dress is in layers - a T-shirt, shirt, pullover (or fleece which is light and dries quickly), and a jacket to give protection against wind and rain.
Trousers should be comfortable for riding - jodhpurs, jeans, etc.
Footwear that is SAFE for riding, we can provide half-chaps.
Protection against the sun, which is very strong. Sun block, lip balm and if you do not intend wearing a hard hat, a hat with a wide brim (also good if it happens to rain).
Dress is always casual. There is a laundry service at Huechahue.

Whilst on the pack trips we provide tents.
Each guest is provided with a set of saddle bags for their personal possessions - change of clothes, toiletries, camera etc. Jackets and pullovers can be tied to the back of the saddle.

Detailed list:
- Good 4 season sleeping bag.
- A complete change of clothes.
- A light pair of shoes, eg. plimsolls - for when you want to take your boots off.
- A set of thermal underwear - a light way of carrying extra warmth, hopefully unnecessary.
- Rain gear – jacket and trousers.
- A small flashlight.

This list is only a guideline for you
