Jan, Feb, Mar
The Andes have always been a mythical place in Argentina. Simon Bolivar and San Martin amongst others real heroes crossed them during the fight for the independence of Southamerica. Would you like to explore them too? Join this horseback riding journey across them, departing and ending in Malargue, Mendoza.
Over a week we will discover some of the most marvellous places in the Andes. We’ll ride through dazzling paths. And reach places where the majestic mountains guard mesmerizing lagoons. Also, we’ll reach stunning waterfalls, as well as certain places where the snow always covers the land.
Moreover, the path we will take will be circular. Therefore, we will never visit the same spot.
We’ll meet in Malargue, northern Argentina. And we’ll end our journey there too. This enchanting town lies right at the foothills of the Andes mountain range. Thus, the views you’ll get from here, as well as the rest of the trip will be simply breathtaking.
Some of the fantastic spots we will be visit include lagoons such as Laguna Baya, Cari Launa and Negra Casca. Also, we’ll cross to Chile and back into Argentina. What’s more we’ll explore charming towns like las Loicas. And explore magical spots like Cajon de Rezago, Guanaco and las Pompas. Moreover, we’ll cross places like Paso Pehuenche and Puesto Sepulveda.
So if you are up for this dream-like adventure don’t hesitate and send us a request. One of our certified guides we’ll have the pleasure to show you this breathtaking place.
But if you are looking for something different, check this Ascent to Nevado de Chañi at 5896m.
First, we’ll meet at the bus terminal or your hotel. Then, we’ll grab lunch together and finish all the last arrangements for the trip, including a short safety briefing, along with sharing the itinerary and meeting your guide. Finally, we’ll take the ruta 40 to Las Loicas where our horseback riding adventure begins.
We’ll begin our journey heading towards the heart of the Andes. Later, we’ll reach the Cajon de Rezago, where we’ll camp for the night.
On this day we’ll ride through different canyons. Then, we’ll stop for a lunch at Puesto Sepulveda. After that we’ll get to Laguna Baya, with our base camp set at a mesmerizing oasis in the Andes.
This will be the day in which we cross into Chile. We’ll cross and descend to Laguna Carilauna. Then, we’ll arrive at Laguna Negra Casca, from where we will re-enter argentina, passing by a splendid cascade at Salto de Panculehue.
We’ll ride across the Cajon Las Pomas. There, we’ll descend from east-west, passing by long plains. Then, we’ll arrive at the cajon del Guanaco, where we’ll set camp for the night.
This will be the last day of our horse riding adventure. First we’ll take the route through Paso Pehuenche, which marks the border between Chile and Argentina that we’ll cross. After exploring the area we’ll head to Las Loicas to cross back into Argentina. Finally, we’ll transfer to our hotel for our last dinner.
After breakfast our adventure ends.

I had a very good experience booking the hike through Explore-Share. Communication with the team was prompt and clear and the booking process was seamless. The trip itself was also just perfect. Uroš was a fantastic guide, highly skilled and talented. The hike felt safe at all times, even on more exposed routes, thanks to him. He was always up to date on the weather forecast and planned the days around it, checked the conditions on the route ahead of me, if needed, discussed and adapted the routes to my level and always made sure I was safe and comfortable. I highly recommend him, as well as Explore-Share.

Explore Share is a really usefull website that has a great overview of reviewed guides for a (in our case) hiking/climbing trip. During the booking I got assigned an assistent for Explore Share that helped solve questions that I might have. Great customer service, and I will come back again.

Guide was very experienced and very patient with us. We learned a lot and he tried to fit in all the knowledge he could in one day, super awesome. A little tough going back and forth to get the trip set up hard to tell if the site is sketchy until you see reviews but all worked out. Ended up with an awesome day with an awesome guide. Overall pretty satisfied and thankful!

It's the 2nd time we have been booking with Explore-Share. The booking was super easy and both Explore-Share and the guide were fast in their responses. We did rafting as a family with 3 kids for the first time in Slovenia. The guide (José) was super nice. He was doing everything he could to make everyone at ease with rafting (he gave clear explanations), have a great team spirit (we were joined by 2 other girls) and have a good time. We had lots of fun and the nature there is so beautiful. Thank you Explore-share and Soca splash for the great afternoon! I would recommend this activity to anyone without a doubt. My kids immediately told me they want to do rafting again soon !"
