HORSEBACK RIDING, DESTINATIONS, SERVICES AND ACTIVITIES
Our programs will give you a chance to fully enjoy nature, being yourself and the horse the main characters throughout the journey, crossing rivers and mountains, riding along narrow paths. You will have a chance to to know each mountain and hill in Tucumán. You will learn about the peculiar lifestyle of the local people who will provide accommodation and will cook the most typical regional dishes for you.
Most horsebackridings tours start in Raco, a Summer resort located 50 km from San Miguel de Tucumán. From there, we will ride in hills and mountains at more than 2000 mts above sea level in the Northwest of the province, and isolated and far from the the noise and crowds of the city.
I have always thought that nothing is better than a horseback ride since the path is made of infinite arrivals. It’s possible to arrive at a crossroad, a flower, a tree, the cloud shadows on the sand of the path; it’s possible to arrive at a stream, at the top of a mountain, at strange stones. It’d seem that the path is making up a surprise to the traveler’s soul’s enjoyment.
