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.
What is a gaucho- Gaucho is an equivalent of the North American 'Cowboy'.
The Gaucho is a nationalistic symbol in Argentina. Gauchos became greatly admired and renowned in legends, folklore and in literature and became an important part of the regional cultural tradition.
A gaucho’s horse constituted most of what he owned in the world!
Why this tour is much more than horseback riding-
This exclusive Gaucho tour offers you a day in the life of our authentic gaucho, Daniel.
You will discover what it is like to cross the Andes on horseback with Daniel and experience the majestic silence that nature offers high on the mountain tops.
Daniel and his family have opened their small mountain cottage to create a unique experience and share with you simple pleasures in life working as a modern day gaucho.
With over 40 horses and 400 cattle, Daniel works daily to ensure his family and animals are safe and well cared for.
This tour is unlike any of the other popular and mainstream horseback riding offered in Mendoza, and is dependent on Daniel’s work schedule and weather conditions.
