Description

Ride for 1.5-hours in the Andes on horseback in the company of bilingual guides. Choose whether to just take the horse ride in the morning (BBQ lunch not included), to conclude your morning ride with a BBQ lunch, or to ride at sunset and end your tour with a BBQ dinner and traditional folk music. The tour begins with either morning or afternoon pickup from your hotel in Mendoza and travels to Los Amigos Post. Here, get kitted out with all the necessary equipment and get acquainted with your horse, which will be selected depending on your size and experience.  After a quick trip to the riding school for a safety lesson on how to ride on mountain roads, it’s time to set off for Mirador Eagles Nest. Upon arrival at Mirador Eagles Nest, admire the breathtaking views across the Andes. Jump down from your horse and stretch your legs as you explore the landscape and take some photos.  From here, look back and see how much of the road you have traveled, and feel like a true adventurer. Don't forget to keep an eye out for black eagles and condors that circle around, as well as other wildlife in the area. Continue the horse ride to Aguaribay Post, and enjoy a delicious Argentinian Asado BBQ (if one of the options with BBQ is selected).  The BBQ lunch or dinner option includes chorizo, morcillas, ribs, steak, grilled vegetables, homemade bread, seasonal salads, and local wines. There’s also a vegetarian option. If you selected the morning trip, the BBQ lunch is optional. For afternoon tours, a BBQ dinner is included, as well as a sunset ride and a traditional folk music session.
