Horseback riding is one of the unique and unforgettable experiences in Patagonia, as much so for beginners as for experienced riders. Most of our rides take place from Cerro Guido. The private land of this estancia or Patagonian Ranch extends more than 100,000 hectares and the local gauchos (cowboys) accompany us on this adventure at “the uttermost ends of the earth.” The horses of the ranch were born and raised in this wild terrain and have been specially trained so anyone may ride here, even if they have no previous experience. Riding here means you can experience this special part of Patagonia like the locals do, on horseback with them at your side.
Horse Ride Estancia Lazo
HALF DAY RIDE
Duration: 2 hours riding
From the hotel we drive southwards to the Estancia Lazo. It is a scenic drive, with great views of Lake Sarmiento. The ride starts from the Lazo Hosteria and passes through an ancient forest of lenga trees. After an hour or so, we arrive at a lookout point with panoramic views of the Paine Massif. We return through the forest back to the farm, with our gaucho constantly at our side.
