On this 1-day program, we will discover the beautiful Cordón del Plata landscapes on horseback.  First of all, we will pick you up at your accommodation at 8.30 am and drive for 2 hours to the mountains. We will go by Cacheuta and Potrerillos. Then, once we arrive at the ranch where we will set up base, we will share a typical homemade breakfast and you will have the chance to try some mate.

Once we finish breakfast, we will mount our horses and set off on a thrilling horseback riding adventure. On the way, we will catch sight of typical local animals such as condors and guanacos, so don’t forget your cameras! Finally, after 3 hours, we will return to savor a delicious traditional asado with local wine and dessert before heading back to Mendoza.

About the guide

guide profile img

I was born in Córdoba, Argentina, where I was able to venture into mountaineering more than ten years ago. I took my first steps in the Sierras de Córdoba, and from there, I set out to explore higher mountains.
Five years ago, I achieved my dreams when I came to Mendoza to become a professional mountain guide and earn a living doing what I love. Two years from now, we created our own adventure tourism company in Mendoza.
For the last 3 years, I have been working in a foundation, as an instructor in first aid and rescue in wild areas, training government agencies, guides, etc. I have made Advanced emergency medical technician in Buenos Aires, with real ambulance hours.

Join me in one of my programs and discover the Andes with me.
