HORSE RIDE PATAGONIA – DAY TOUR
The excursion takes riders south along the Milodón River. This area is known as La Faja. After going through a burnt down forest and climbing 600 meters, guests will have a breathtaking view on the glacier Milodón, framed by the impressive Cordón Huemul. The vegetation totally changes as the ride enters the valley of the Mirador del Condór. At this point we will have lunch and allow for the horses to rest in the last shelter provided by the trees before we keep on climbing. This area is inhabited by guanacos and condors, who will surely be surprised by our presence, making for potentially stunning bird watching opportunities. Arriving at the edge after the last efforts, we will stand in front of a breathtaking view in the heart of the National Park, Los Glaciares. From the Mount Pintado to the Mount Fitz Roy, we stand in front of the ANDES.
