To fully immerse yourself in Argentina’s gaucho traditions, there are few experiences more exhilarating than a small group riding holiday in Patagonia. Led by legendary guide Jakob Von Plessen, our small group will spend seven nights exploring areas of pristine wilderness, many of which can only be reached on horseback.
Ascend to dizzying heights along the spine of the rugged Andean mountains, taking in jaw-dropping views over volcanic moonscapes. We’ll drop into lush prairies, petrified forests and crystalline rivers where you can try your hand at fly fishing for rainbow trout. This week-long Patagonia adventure is paced to perfection: morning rides to lookout points for delicious picnics, followed by shady siestas and river swims, before meandering back to camp for sundowners and feasts of plenty. The surrounding landscapes are home to an astonishing array of wildlife, from red deer and puma to curious condors that swoop within metres of our horses.
Accommodation is wild, cosy and quietly stylish. We begin at Base Camp, where five cabins with terraces and good beds are warmed by wood burners. The welcoming clubhouse overlooks the Filo Hua Hum river and is the base for delicious meals, pisco sours and evening games. While up in the mountains, we’ll settle into fly camps with dome tents and mattresses. Wash your face in mountain springs and enjoy hearty meals prepared by gauchos. Finally, we’ll sleep in safari-style tents in a traditional farmstead on the edge of a forest. While you relax, explore and swim in the sparkling waters of Lago Traful, host Felipe and his family slow cook lamb over embers.
