HORSEBACK RIDING IN PATAGONIA
If you come to Patagonia you should consider making at least one horse-riding trip. Why? Very simple. Horseback riding through wonderful landscapes, through forests surrounded by majestic mountains, being in direct contact with nature, admiring the clear and starry sky, during camp nights, without any other sound than the cracking fire and our friend's voices, is an unforgettable experience.
It offers the possibility of crossing great extensions of land or following winding paths on the brink of precipices or even visiting places impossible to reach any other way. And, of course, visiting the region aboard a vehicle is not the same as closely interacting with such a noble animal
