    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Pass By: Tangol Bariloche, Vice Almte. O'Connor 510, San Carlos de Bariloche 8400 Argentina

    After hotel pickup, travel by air-conditioned coach for about an hour east of Bariloche and head to Puesto La Fragua de Estancia San Ramon (San Ramón Ranch).

    Stop At: La Fragua de estancia San Ramon, Ruta 23 km 588 30kms de Bariloche, San Carlos de Bariloche 8400 Argentina

    One of the oldest working ranches in the area, San Ramón Ranch spans 62,000 acres (25,000 hectares) into the foothills of the Argentine Andes. When you arrive, you’ll notice cattle and sheep roaming the grasslands.

    Follow your guide to an old countryside school converted to the ranch’s eating area, located below one of the largest condor nesting rocks in the region. You might just see one of these impressive creatures soaring high in the sky. Inside the former school, ranch staff welcome you with a light breakfast of sweets, coffee, juice and mate tea.

    Next, mosey over to the stables for a safety briefing and be paired up with a horse that matches your riding experience. This tour is suitable for both beginners and more experienced riders; you'll learn some horseback riding techniques from your expert guide who leads the way on a 2-hour journey into the Andes foothills.

    Pass a picturesque lake and ride through transition forests before reaching the Patagonian steppe. Keep your eyes peeled for condors, pink flamingos, black-necked swans, guanacos, rheas and deer. Your guide explains the geological sights, plants and wildlife you see along the way.

    After your horseback ride, return to the ranch and dig into a 3-course lunch featuring Argentine asado (see below for a sample menu). The feast of traditional barbecued meats comes with an open bar of wine, soft drinks and mineral water.

    Your appetite sated, enjoy transport back to your Bariloche hotel.

    Please note: If you select the afternoon tour, you will start off with lunch, then the horseback ride, and end with snacks consisting of sweets, coffee, juice and mate tea.

    • Empanadas

    We visited this Estancia towards the end of our 30-day tour of South America with GAdventures. Our group of 16 enjoyed a wonderful day exploring the local area on very placid horses (most of us had never ridden before), topped off with a succulent, mouth-watering asado

    The horseback riding itself is fairly short, maybe 2 hours. But the educational piece led by the property owner is very informative. The meal is huge and meat was delicious.

    It was a brilliant day. Good transport to the Estancia from our hostel. We arrived and had an interesting explanation of the wildlife in the area whilst the horses where being prepared. The ride itself was fantastic, the horses were so calm and I’ve only ridden a horse once for
