We can pick you up from San Rafael or meet directly at El Sosneado. Then, we’ll take a 3 hour ride on a vehicle up to the mountain. When we get there, we’ll get ready to get on the horses. Thereupon our adventure begins crossing the rivers Atuel, as well as Rosado and Barroso. After about 4 hours horseback riding, we’ll get to our camp base at El Barroso to grab lunch. Later the rest of the afternoon will be free.
After a typical argentinian breakfast we’ll trek towards the Valle de las Lagrimas. We’ll ride for about 4 hours, until we arrive at the Las Lagrimas Glacier, right at the border with Chile. Then, we’ll ascend to a very solemn place where we’ll find a cross as a memory of the victims of the plane crash. Thereupon we will silently and respectfully explore the area finding remains of the airplane itself as well as offerings and monuments to the victims. After exploring there, we will have lunch and return to our campsite. Finally we’ll have a farewell dinner.
We’ll begin our day with breakfast. Then, we’ll ride to El Sosneado.
We recommend you to stay at San Rafael the previous night, from where we can pick you up. You don’t require previous horseback riding experience. And the trip is suitable for adventurers from 13 to 60 years old. Please note the itinerary may change due to unforeseen circumstances.
