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

  • Hotel
  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch, 1 Dinner
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.

Day 3: Return Buenos Aires

  • 1 Breakfast
Return to Buenos Aires mid-morning.
