Southern Patagonia in Chile is perfect riding country. Unhindered by fences, roads or urban development, horseback riders can canter side by side for miles and miles across pampas beneath towering granite peaks surrounded by the immense beauty of the southern ice cap. They can rest beside flower-filled meadows, clear mountain lakes and glaciers, and drink from iceberg-choked rivers. This is a riders' paradise away from the mainstream trails and into the Patagonia wilderness.

Accompanied by gauchos and trusted criollo horses riding here can be challenging at times due to the inclement weather and fast paced style of local horsemanship. This authentic horse country offers an unforgettable encounter with not only the astonishing landscape of southern Patagonia but also the people and wildlife that it sustains.
