Itinerary for Estancia in the Pampas and Buenos Aires



Sample Itinerary - subject to changes

Day 1 – Arrival
Arrive Buenos Aires during the morning. Pick up at International Airport at preset time and then approximately 3 hrs. drive to the Estancia in the Pampas. Lunch. Horseback riding in the afternoon. With the help of your guide we will introduce you to the Argentine horse breed and assign your horse for the rest of the stay. We will ride the surroundings of the Estancia to get used to your horse and learn about the daily activities at the Estancia. A hearty Argentine welcome dinner. 
Meals included: Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Estancia


Day 2-3-4 – Horseback and ranch activities
During your stay you will be riding Argentine-bred horses on the famous Pampas grasslands with wonderful long canters on the plains and the chance to explore the quaint and charming villages throughout the area. The gauchos (our cowboys) will be eager to teach you the “secrets” of cattle work and horse breeding. You will enjoy both the horseback and ranch activities at the Estancia over the next few days, including:
- Ride the El Gato river banks. This portion of wilderness will let you see how the Pampas were originally
- Conventional cattle work, cattle driving, and barrel racing
- Drive 19th century carriages
- On a longer day we will ride past neighboring Estancias only to make a stop under the shade of the trees to lunch on a traditional Argentine barbecue
- We will explore area and villages that are typical of historic Argentina, such as the very small town of Almada. The locals gather at the bar and are always glad to have visitors and make new friends. It is like going back in time. Tie up your horse in front of the bar the same way it was done in the Old West. Enjoy a drink and have a chat with the locals.
Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner
Overnight at Estancia


Day 5 – Last Ride
We will ride during the morning and then say good bye to the horses.  After lunch we leave the Estancia and head to Buenos Aires city. Free time to wander around the city, go shopping, visit museums.
Meals included: Breakfast & Lunch
Overnight at Hotel in Buenos Aires


Day 6 – Buenos Aires
Breakfast. We meet to take some time to visit the city and learn about its icons in a very special way:  Plaza de Mayo, Casa Rosada’s balcony, Eva Peron, etc. Set aside the evening for tango. We will attend a tango show with dinner and a tango lesson at Complejo Tango.
Meals included: Breakfast
Overnight at Hotel in Buenos Aires

Day 7 Paraná river delta & Departure
Pick up from your hotel for 9:00am after breakfast to visit the River Plate/ Paraná delta and the surrounding picturesque towns. We will travel on bus, train, and boat. At Tigre city we will get on board a boat. Snack available (not included). From the side of the boat we will appreciate the exotic subtropical forest  of the Paraná  river delta, a 14,000  square  kilometers  area  comprising  thousands  of islands and islets. The River Plate is the ending portion of the Paraná river which is 2,500 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 its volume of water flowing into the Atlantic Ocean is roughly equal to the volume of the Mississippi river. Transfer back to the hotel in Buenos Aires. Arrive 2:30 PM. Free time until transfer to Ezeiza International Airport. Flight back home in the evening. End of program.
Meals included: Breakfast
