Enjoy the surroundings of Punta Arenas with this Horseback Riding Tour – Patagonia Style.
This tour is being guided by true gauchos, the Patagonian cowboys, as so to say. This way, you will not only experience a taste of adventure while riding through the diverse Patagonian landscape, but also an authentic inside view about the life of the people in Patagonia.
Our half-day horseback riding tour runs twice a day – year-round, therefore, also during the Patagonian winter.
This horseback riding tour is possible for beginners.
Daily at 9:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m. Pick up at Hospedaje Magallanes in Punta Arenas. After a short shuttle transfer, arrive about 25km (15 miles) South of Punta Arenas, at Agua Fresca. Meet your guide at Hostería Agua Fresca, a small, family-run lodge. This tour is being guided by born-anailyd-bred Patagonian Gauchos that live here, in Agua Fresca. Ride along the famous Strait of Magellan, through wetlands that are inhabited by numerous birds and through high grown lenga forests. It won’t be boring, for sure! After about two hours on horseback, return to Hostería Agua Fresca for a typical, home-made snack. Return to your hotel in Punta Arenas at about 1:00/ 5:00 p.m.
Transfer from/to Hospedaje Magallanes
Spanish speaking guide
The gauchos speak very little English, it would be too much to say that this tour is being led by an English speaking guide. Please keep this in mind and be prepared to possibly communicate with your hands and feet… 😉
