Horseback Riding in the Andes, gaucho experience & BBQ
Horseback riding in Mendoza through its magical landscapes: a full day to experience our regional culture. At Don Daniel mountain hut you will get to know the Cordón del Plata and enjoy typical Argentinean activities, such as drinking mate with sopaipillas (a deep-fried pastry), or eating a great asado (barbecue) in the mountains.Itinerary
It will be a typical gaucho day from the beginning to the end. Don Daniel’s is a true mountain hut, which allows each visitor to share its family tradition. You will enjoy the calm and the immensity of the Andes on horseback, and our host will guide you through unique trails, only known to those who inhabit this area. You will have a unique experience off the beaten track.
To start, some delicious mates with tortas fritas: you will be welcomed at the ranch with delicious homemade fried pastries.
And then let’s get ready to ride. We will meet the horse and the muleteer, and we will visit places that will surprise us with their natural beauty. A tip: Take a camera! What we will see is just unbelievable.
After 3 hours of riding, we know you’ll be hungry. We will prepare a great asado -with a vegetarian option for those who prefer so-, accompanied by quality wine from Mendoza. We will conclude the day with the dessert.
