Horseback riding has a long tradition in Patagonia, when the first travelers in the area roamed the open plains with the local Patagonian cowboys, or Baqueanos. Enjoy this opportunity to live Patagonia’s history and present day tradition as you ride across a scenic Chilean Patagonia ranch, rich in wildlife and mountain views. This is a great addition to an adventure at Ecocamp.

Day 1: Ecocamp Patagonia Horseback Ride

After breakfast, drive east from EcoCamp to a nearby traditional Estancia, founded at the end of the 19th century just outside Torres del Paine National Park. Upon arrival at the ranch, stables meet your local Baqueano (Patagonian cowboy) guide, who introduces you to the fine selection of Patagonian horses we will be riding. Your guide expands on the region’s horse-riding history and the geography of this fascinating area so close to the world’s end, with a wealth of stories passed down through generations.

Saddle up and set off eastwards, through the fields, passing by a tiny village en route to Las Flores. On the way, cross the Baguales River, a popular for fly fishing due to its calm waters and lively trout. From here, there is an open, accessible road ahead so riders with more experience can canter, and those with less experience can walk or trot. The village of Las Flores provides excellent views of the Sierra Baguales and the opportunity to visit the only remaining adobe house in the southern Patagonia Magellanes region. Along the way, settle down to enjoy a picnic amid the spectacular Patagonian scenery and reflect on the generations of Baqueanos who have traveled across Patagonia’s plains.

On the way back to the stables, ride through the Vega Nash, soaking up the experience of riding across the Patagonian plains traditionally. Say goodbye to your guide and horse, head back to EcoCamp to enjoy our dinner and time to share the day’s experience with fellow EcoCamp guests.

This was our first trip to South America and we were a little nervous. But Adventure Life made things so easy! All our questions were answered before we left, and our guide, Vidal, was amazing! He gave us enough space to explore without rushing us along. He also knew where the best picture taking opportunities were, which was great.
