Mendoza Horseback Riding Tour with Traditional Argentine Asado
  • Mendoza Horseback Riding Tour with Traditional Argentine Asado

    This full-day tour takes you horseback riding in the Uco Valley, located in the middle of the Andes mountain range. Discover a unique Argentine landscape from the foothills of the Cordón del Plata (Silver Cord), and follow your experienced guide on a 3.5-hour ride while magnificent condors fly above. Enjoy breakfast at Quebrada del Condor (Condor’s Gorge) and complete your tour with a barbecue lunch. Round-trip hotel transport by minivan from Mendoza is included. Numbers are limited to 12 people, ensuring a personalized experience with a small group.

    Your tour begins in the morning with hotel pickup in Mendoza. Aboard your comfortable minivan, drive through Villa Potrerillos, a village located 45 minutes away. You’ll continue up to Quebrada del Condor, stopping at the panoramic viewpoint of Mirador de la Hoyada en route.

    Approximately two hours after leaving Mendoza you’ll reach the gorge, where a traditional Argentine breakfast is served to your small group.

    Once your guide offers a safety briefing and some instruction, settle onto your sturdy horse — bred for stamina over mountainous terrain — and follow along the rugged trail. Your 3.5-hour horseback ride starts at the foot of the Cordón del Plata, an Andean mountain range in the Uco Valley. Amid this breathtaking landscape of snowcapped peaks, wildlife abounds. Keep a lookout for llamas, foxes, hares, condors and other incredible birds throughout your horseback ride.

    In the middle of the journey, stop for a break at the shore of a creek to enjoy an infusion of mate, a popular drink made from yerba mate leaves steeped in hot water. Then saddle up and follow ancient paths until your small group reaches a viewpoint. From 9,185 feet (2,800 meters) above sea level, you’ll appreciate the magnificent scenery, including the Cordón del Plata ridge and the Potrerillos Valley.

    At the completion of your horseback ride in the late afternoon, dismount to enjoy an authentic Argentine asado (barbecue) for lunch.

    Your full-day tour ends with return transport by minivan to your hotel in Mendoza.

      I knew I wanted to do something special for my birthday and I figured this experience would be it. I was beyond right. Small group, wonderful guides, great and friendly horse, excellent lunch, and memories for a lifetime. Cannot recommend more highly. They even dropped me off at the restaurant where I was going to have my birthday dinner at the end of the day, a nicety they did not need to do. Book with confidence that you will have a great time.

      This was pure and simply AWESOME! This is not recommended for a beginner rider or those who are afraid of heights. You go up the Andes a good 3000 feet and your horse is made to walk along the very edge!! Even in the most hot of days you will be at high elevation. You need to dress extremely warm!
