Schedule for the day:
9 - 9:30am: We’ll start picking everyone up from their hotels in our comfortable minivan, and make our way over to the ranch in Capilla de Señor. On the way, our guide will talk to you about the gaucho way of life out in the countryside.
11am: When we arrive at the Estancia Don Silvano we’ll be greeted with traditional empanadas and drinks (wine, juice).
11:30am - 1pm: After being welcomed in, you’ll have the chance to really explore this magnificent, 900-acre ranch. Built in 1930, the ranch house is very Victorian in its architecture. You’re welcome to head over to the bakery or the museum, or even join in with the local gauchos milking the cows. Feel free to have a relaxed horseback ride, or perhaps take a trip in a horse-drawn carriage or a tractor to see new parts of the ranch.
1 - 3pm: No trip would be complete without a traditional asado, complete with chorizo, morcilla (a sort of local black pudding), steak, chicken, papas a la provenzal (potato salad) and a whole host of salads! Lunch is served with a dessert and a coffee, as well as a selection of drinks including red and white wine, beer, soft drinks and water.
Please let us know when you book if you require a vegetarian menu.
During lunch, you’ll get to see a traditional gaucho show, complete with local music and dancing. They’ll then show off their incredible and unique skills, using tools such as boleadoras to demonstrate age-old expertise. You can even try some of the dancing for yourself!
3:30pm: After lunch, you’ll see some more local gaucho skills such as ring racing, horse taming and training a herd.
4:30pm: We’ll bring our time at the ranch to a close with a merienda, a late-afternoon snack where you can try the traditional mate as well as little Argentine cakes, pastries and other sweet treats.
5pm: We’ll head back into Buenos Aires and drop you off at your hotel after an exciting and utterly unique experience.
