Cordoba and the Central Sierras: Horse riding in the Argentine sierras

Horse riding in the Argentine sierras

Spending a whole week roaming the Sierras on horseback really gives you a chance to get immersed in this unspoilt, rustic land. It’s a welcoming terrain of grasslands and rolling plains, where wild flowers flourish and a simple way of life prevails.

Starting out at the wonderful Estancia Los Potreros, you’ll set out into the countryside in the company of a guide who can bring alive the local culture and traditional lifestyles you will witness on your voyage. You’ll ride for a few hours each day along little-trodden trails and ridges, past farmland, crystalline streams and dales. Evenings bring a chance to experience different aspects of the region’s hospitality, whether at a cosy homestay, a rural lodge or even camping out beneath the stars. 

What our experts say

In the sierras around Cordoba, try a Peruvian pace horse for a smooth ride. The steeply undulating landscape is not conducive to galloping; rides are appropriate for beginners while still delighting experienced riders. You will be made to feel so at home at any of the estancias that when you leave, it is like saying goodbye to old friends.
