Horseback Riding in Argentine Patagonia
Concierge.com's insider take:
Argentines admit they're obsessed with horses—every estancia will offer guests the chance to saddle up. The horse still remains the preferred mode of transport for the country's gauchos (pictured), the hard-living cowboys and workhands of the pampas and the steppe. Riding the gauchos' trails is a great way for visitors to explore Patagonia's landscape, too. Most outfitters arrange one-day cabalgatas excursions on well-trained steeds close to towns, estancias, or lodges; cross-country routes are best planned ahead of time. Buenos Aires-based tailor-made travel firm Mai10 can help plan more-complex cross-country trips (54-11-4314-3390; www.mai10.com.ar).
