Are you ready for adventure? The Yungas jungle is one of Argentina's last remaining primeval forests. Discover lush vegetation and a rich biodiversity: over 600 species of birds and animals such as the pecari, tapir, mono kai monkey, puma, etc. This activity takes place in a finca in the middle of the Yungas mountains, where gauchos still live in the traditional way, with their cows semi-liberty in the jungle. This is a private experience: you have a guide all to yourself for the duration of the activity. Horseback riding is accessible to all levels of rider, even beginners. On the program : 9:00 am - Meet at Finca La Fé : you will come with your own vehicle, or, as an option, a driver will pick you up in Salta Capital or Jujuy Capital. 9:15 am - Coffee and morning snack while the team saddles the horses. 9:30 am - Departure for the horseback ride. For 2.5 hours, you'll ride through the jungle trails of the Yungas, accompanied by a gaucho from the finca and a translator (who speaks English and French). You'll ride through lush vegetation and, with a little luck, come across some of its wild inhabitants: parrots, toucans, pavos del monte, etc. 1:00 pm - On your return to the finca, an authentic Argentine asado awaits you. Menu: traditional empanadas, parilla-braised meat, side dishes: potatoes and vegetables cooked in a wood-fired oven, dessert, with a glass of local wine. The meat comes from the finca, less than 500 meters from its pasture to your plate. Fruit and vegetables come from the neighboring village. After the asado, you can enjoy a digestive walk along one of the finca's marked trails. You can then take to the road in your own vehicle, or (as an option) a driver will take you to any point in Salta Capital or Jujuy Capital. Optional: you can choose to stay at Finca La Fé for longer, spending the night in one of the lodges built from massive trunks, and relaxing in the private Jacuzzi with the 'thermal waters' experience.
