The 2,500 hectare estancia is home to 30 Peruvian Paso horses and riding trails suitable for all levels. Along with the experienced gaucho, cross through fields of sugarcane and into the beautiful countryside of Salta.
There’s also plenty of opportunity to be immersed in ranch life out of the saddle. Discover the stunning countryside on a bike. Head out with a guide to spot the local birdlife. Join the family with their daily farm work. Help the cooks, preparing asados in the forest or making fresh empanadas in the stone oven. Quiet days can be spent at the estancia, walking through the stunning gardens, relaxing by the pool or, inside, playing board games by the fire.
In the evenings, enjoy traditional dancing lessons or listen to the host telling anecdotes of the estate and local history.
Every meal at El Bordo is homemade, using seasonal ingredients and produce from the ranch. Indulge in homemade sweets, fruits from the orchard, carbonada served in a pumpkin whilst sat in the intimate courtyard setting.
El Bordo de las Lanzas is located in the province of Salta, known for its immense beauty, rich history and delicious gastronomy.
It is one hour by car from the international airports of Salta (SLA) and Jujuy (JUJ). There are daily direct flights from cities all over to Argentina to both these airports such as Mendoza, Buenos Aires and Córdoba.
Estancia El Bordo de las Lanzas can be visited year round. June to September is winter, when the weather is warm and dry during the day, but the nights are chilly. During the summer, which is between December and February, the weather is hot. We’d recommend avoiding February and March, as these months experience the heaviest downpours.
