ANDES CROSSING ON HORSEBACK FROM ARGENTINA
Running the hacienda alongside the baqueanos, we hear every story and every experience, which decade after decade shaped the rich history of this place.
Today we decided to share it and enjoy it again, offering our tourists, friends, unforgettable experiences in the imposing setting of the Andes Mountains. A journey alongside the baqueanos and their customs. The right balance between rest and relaxation, with a lot of action and adventure during the traverse by horses in the wilderness of the Andes Mountains.
History of the Tour
Captain Lemos crossed the Paso del Portillo in 1817 and, years later, San Martín returned at the end of the liberating deed in 1823. Historically it was used by the Huarpes, Araucanians, Jesuits, Baqueanos and Criollos. Even Darwin himself used it for his anthropological studies. Crossing the Paso Portillo we find the Alto Valle del Tunuyán, a place where cattle used to graze in the summer months. In recent times this area has been transformed and currently the activity we carry out is mountain tourism, with horseback riding that begins in January and ends in mid-April.
We invite you to this adventure, where we will live as our gauchos did, touring the lands where the hacienda was lowered, and enjoying the typical meals of the Cordillera.
