What you'll do

After I pick you up, we’ll head to a family ranch in the Andes where our journey begins. We’ll meet a local family and learn about their lives in the mountains. Then you can live out your cowboy dreams, riding through the remote Andes on horseback. We’ll stop for coffee as we take in the views.

Once we ride to the ranch, I’ll barbeque a typical Argentinian feast, and you’ll have time to explore.

After a full stomach and a good night’s rest, you’ll enjoy breakfast and then head home to the big city.

Hi! I'm Gustavo and I have been working in the mountains for the last 20 years. I'm a former Park Ranger and was one of the first ones in Laguna del Diamante Natural Reserve. My activities distinguish for guiding tourists off the beaten path in Mendoza engaging with locals and their traditional activities.

Rosendo, our host and owner of the land, belongs to the 5th generation living in this area, keeping all of its traditions alive. His family, from creole descendants, was one of first ones to settle in the area at the foothill of the Andes.

It was probably one of the best horseback riding tours we have ever done. Gustavo, who was taking care of us throughout the 2 days experience in a wonderful way, picked us up at the hotel and brought us to the Rosendo farm. From there we started our tour with the horses to an outback “estancia” (small house in the mountains) where we coincidentally met some gauchos. The house itself is basic but really authentic. Lunch, Dinner and Breakfast was more than enough. We can highly recommend taking the tour with Gustavo! Thank you for amazing two days!
