Estancia El Ombu

Departs

  • Any Day of the Week

Private Independent Travel

Spend a few days outside of the city to experience The Pampas - El Gaucho style. Stay at a working cattle ranch as you learn the ropes of this traditional Argentine way of life. Help out with the cattle drives, lasso horses, and connect with the local people who have been living this way for centuries.

Day 1

Arrive Estancia El Ombu

Transfer from a hotel in Buenos Aires about two hours outside of the city to The Pampas, vast and fertile South American lowlands. Arrive in time for a welcoming lunch before choosing to take part in an afternoon activity. The Estancia offers multiple activity options on-site, including horseback riding, carriage rides, a swimming pool, a games area, bicycles, and volleyball.

Day 2

The El Gaucho Life

Spend today immersing yourself in the life of a working ranch. Observe and take part in various stock-rearing activities with the mainly Hereford and Angus cattle on the ranch. Witness or participate in milking, cattle drives, ear-tagging, and branding - all the day to day activities that a working hacienda performs. Explore the 300 acre property on foot, by bike, or on a horse with a seasoned gaucho at your side. A golf and tennis country club offers optional activity nearby. You can also visit San Antonio de Areco, a picturesque pampas pueblo with a small Gaucho museum, silversmiths, wood workshops, and a little chocolate factory. The day is free to spend as you like.

Other activities available at special request are folk dances and horse-back skills events such as sortija races, lassoing, and hog-tying.
