HORSE RIDING IN CHILE

Chile’s riding possibilities are probably the most diverse in South America, with the best places in the country being the far south and far north of the country.  In the south the Andes meet the ocean and the clash of the climates has left some spectacular peaks which are ideal for riding around.   In the far north the desert like landscape is home to pre Inca ruins, flat salt lakes and valleys with moon like features.
Most of the riding in Chile is done as a half or full day excursion allowing you to combine any other interests you have with some riding.  The estancias and lodges in both parts have stables, some with over 40 horses to choose from and each experience is taken with an qualified riding guide.

BEST PLACES FOR HORSE RIDING IN CHILE

Chile, like Argentina has a stunning and varied landscape, which is ideal for riding.  You can take either full or half day rides into any given area or take a longer ride for 2 or 3 nights where you will stay in either local estancias or camp.

As with every place where we offer riding there are a range of horses to match your standard of riding and all our excursions include qualified and knowledgeable guides

Atacama

The Atacama Desert is the driest place on earth, offering amazing scenery, numerous activities, and year round good weather.  The best base for exploring the Atacama region is the town of San Pedro, made almost entirely of adobe brick – a mix of local mud and straw. The archaeological museum holds an extraordinary collection of artefacts, whilst its streets are lined with indigenous handicraft markets and its outskirts contain ancient ruins and thermal springs.

Patagonia

Chilean Patagonia is one of the remotest and beautiful areas of the world, with lush forests, deep fjords, spectacular shaped mountains and awe inspiring glaciers. Amongst the scenery is an abundance of wildlife including llama, guanaco, rhea, condors and Magellan penguins.

The Lake District

Chile’s southern region is a multitude of lakes and volcanoes and is also home to one of the most remarkable indigenous cultures, the Mapuches, who, for nearly 3 centuries, defended their homeland from the Spanish conquistadors.  Of particular interest is the chain of national parks that extends along the Argentine border, with wonderful scenery of lakes, forests and volcanic plateaus.
