We will ride the Aconcagua region. Here, stand the most massive and immense mountains in America, including its tallest peak, the Aconcagua (23 200 ft.). The mecca of mountaineering. Riding at heights over 11 000 ft., through small trails, past fairy tales valleys and colourful creeks… It is in these uninhabited places, which you can only reach on horseback, where huge herds of guanacos roam freely and the Andean condor nests. Only in unique places like this you can enjoy the privilege of watching them in plenitude.

This is also a place where history was written. In 1817, the Los Andes Army crossed through this exact same spot. After, they moved on to liberate Chile from the Spanish Conquistadors. We will have a glimpse of the titanic efforts our Fathers of Independence had to overcome. 

As the sun sets, the spectacular stars of the southern hemisphere will cover the sky. Relax at the camp with its peaceful atmosphere. The campfire that lightens up the darkness as you share a cup of coffee, tea or mate. All this creates the ideal ambiance to feel the timeless spirit of nature and make new friends.
