HERDING CATTLE IN THE PATAGONIAN ANDES

During this adventurous trip you accompany the gauchos, herding cattle in the Patagonian Andes. You sleep in the mountains and you learn how to drive cattle. An unforgettable experience of gaucho life in a beautiful setting!

Detailed Program

DAY 1: ARRIVAL IN SAN CARLOS DE BARILOCHE

Upon arrival at the airport of San Carlos de Bariloche you are brought to your hotel. If you have some spare time, you can wander around the streets of this picturesque place that lies at the shores of the beautiful Lake Nahuel Huapi, surrounded by the majestic Andean mountains. In the afternoon you meet your fellow travelers and the guide, who gives a short introduction on the expedition. During a welcome dinner you can enjoy a famous Argentinean steak in typical restaurant. You spend the night in a hotel in San Carlos de Bariloche.

DAY 2: THE ADVENTURE BEGINS

A car takes you from your hotel to the starting point of the expedition, which lies about 30 kilometers outside of San Carlos de Bariloche. The horses are waiting for you here. You ride along a river bank until you reach the mountain range. You come through native forests, moving ever further away from civilization. After five hours you reach the campsite, where you spend the next few nights in a comfortable tent. Enjoy the stars while spending the evening at a campfire.

DAY 3: HERDING CATTLE

After breakfast, you start your working day! In small groups you search the cows that are grazing in the surrounding fields. It normally takes several hours of riding in the mountainous area to find all the animals and bring them together. Once you found the cattle, you drive them to the corral, making sure they don’t escape. After all the hard work, you have earned a good dinner: a traditional Argentinean barbecue called „asado“.

DAY 4: USING THE LASSO

You start the day looking for stray cows in order to make sure that none of them are left behind. Afterwards you continue your work in the corral, where the gauchos teach you how to use the lasso. You can practice your skills on the calves.

DAY 5. RETURN TO BARILOCHE

After having participated in the true gaucho life, you ride back to the starting point. You can say goodbye to the horses before you are taken to San Carlos de Bariloche by car. In the evening there is a farewell dinner. Tonight you can sleep in a hotel again.

DAY 6: FAREWELL

You are taken from the hotel to the airport, from where you continue your journey.
