At 9:30 AM we leave Salta city for the starting point of the ride. This area is surrounded by dense forest, which served as the best protection for General Güemes’ troops during the Independence War against the Spanish Conquistadors.

Meet the horses. Last minute packing. We ride through the forest and pass along its peculiar trees (algarrobos, talas, caldenes, molles, etc.). There is plenty of wildlife in the area: wild boars, deer, foxes, hares, etc. We might have the chance to see some and, in the season, an amazing number of butterflies.

We pass small hidden valleys and water streams. At midday we stop for a barbecue and a refreshing after-lunch rest. 

The ride moves on along the hill tops from where we have a magnificent view of the whole area.

After saying farewell to the horses. Transfer back to Salta city where we arrive at aprox. 6:30 PM.
