Horseback Riding Through Los Andes In Mendoza

Reviews 5/5 Stars - Based on 5 Reviews


Highlights of Los Andes Crossing Horseback Riding

This adventure is very special since we will have the opportunity to go through one of the most amazing achievements in the history of mankind. We will cross the Andes Mountains through exactly the same place where San Martín and O`Higgins passed in 1817.

In this journey of 8 days and 7 nights we will cross impressive landscapes flanked by the highest hills of America: Aconcagua and Mercedario. We can see in our way huge herds of guanacos and also condors. When the sun goes down, we will be amazed by an impressive amount of stars illuminating the sky of the southern hemisphere. The tranquility, the stove, the guitars and the rounds of mate in the camp, create the ideal environment to think about what was lived every day.

It is an ideal excursion for nature and horseback riding lovers, who want to live the experience of making the crossing as experienced by the Army of the Andes.
