The Real Gaucho Day Trip from Mendoza - Don Daniel Ranch

The Real Gaucho Day is an unique adventure in the heart of the Andes. It is a full day living with an authentic Argentinean cow-boy.


After leaving Mendoza we arrive at Daniel’s ranch to learn the authentic ritual of Argentinean Mate and eat some delicious homemade sopaipillas (donuts) with Daniel’s family.
After saddling up the horses, we start a 2 hours horse ride into the Andes. We then have a typical lunch at 2700m enjoying majestic views of the Andes (regarding weather could be an asado/BBQ or cold sandwich if windy)
Then we continue horse riding for 1,5 hours and go back to Daniel’s ranch.
We finally return to Mendoza.
