    Destino Argentina

Our estancia lends itself for introspection – enjoy the endless landscapes and get in touch with nature on our unique gaucho experience. La Pampa is the place where the Humid Pampas meets Patagonia.

We will pick you up from the Santa Rosa Airport and take you to Estancia La Providencia, 90km away. We will welcome you, and offer you a unique insight into rural culture and traditions.

Whether your passion is horseback riding, safari, bird-watching, trekking in the forest of the caldenes, milking cows or simply relaxing in the pool, or with local massages, our guests will experience a once-in-a-lifetime vacation and will find a reason to return.

Why our riding stands out

  • Ride like a gaucho, now is your chance! The choice of horses as well as the circuit will depend on the riding experience of each visitor. Horse safari is a big flag for us.
  • We also ride around different types of environments: dunes, hills, woods, steppes and highlands. Wildlife-watching includes: deer, rheas, wild boars and birds. Visit to deer pens and bird-watching stations. Trail riding is tailored to suit ability, and the hills provide a surprising variety of landscapes and terrain.
  • The available horses have been awarded by the most important agricultural entities in the country, we are one of the most important breeders of Peruvian horses in the country. These are considered the best saddle horse due to its smooth ride and its characteristic high step or lift (agudeza), and lateral movement (termino) which give this unique breed a distinctive grace.
