Full description
Get picked up from centrally-located hotels in Salta and transfer to the hills that surround the town of San Lorenzo. Completely covered with grassland, where cattle graze and locals mill about, take in the best panoramic views of the Lerma Valley, Salta Capital, and the town of San Lorenzo. Get kitted out with all the necessary equipment and get acquainted with your horse, which will be selected based on your size and experience. Ascend from the village on a path with a moderate slope. Follow an undulating route up the mountain to different points of interest in the area, all of great natural value. This tour is ideal for people who have little time and are looking to take full advantage of the natural landscapes, as well as those looking to try out horseback riding for the first time. If the full-day option is selected, enjoy a delicious Argentinian Asado BBQ. The lunch includes a selection of typical Argentinian meat, grilled vegetables, seasonal salads, and soft drinks and water. A vegetarian option is also available.

The experience was overall very beautiful: peaceful walk in green meadows surrounded by the hills! And we were totally alone with the guide and our horses!Total serenity! However, it was very rough at the beginning because the guide didn’t speak English and we didn’t understand spanish, so it was very hard to understand how to manage the horse. When you get used to it, it becomes ok. But at first there was a lot of inconvenience
