We booked our ride through Aymara and Argentina Rafting. Full day: first two hours ride, a lovely lunch with wine and then another almost 1.5 hour ride. The guide was very friendly. The lunch was perfect inside a wood cabin infront of a fireplace, some well-needed shade from the hot sun we had during the rides.

We booked through Cubas de Roble and Argentina Rafting. The full day horseback riding is really worth its price. We rode horses for about 5 hours in total with a stop in between for Lunch: barbecue and wine. It was just perfect. The views are amazing and the guide, Pablo, is really kind.

Our young family (4 kids, ages 9, 7, 4, and 2) visited with a group of 30 English speaking students. The staff was amazing with the little ones and many first time riders. The staff is helpful, friendly, and patient. Their English is great and they went out of their way to set the kids and new riders at ease.... More

Our whole family enjoyed our "cabalgata" through the mountains very much. Nicolas and his kids were fantastic and very friendly hosts, and it's probably hard to find a better and more enjoyable way to experience the beautiful landscape in the Potrerillos area.

We booked this through Argentina Rafting who use this as their base for Cabalgatas and had a wonderful time. The service and reception were friendly, the horses incredibly surefooted. We had a 1.5 hour ride into some wonderful countryside with incredible views. Most of us were beginner riders and the horses were very surefooted and safe. My whole family were... More

Rincon de los Oscuros was incredible! Enjoying the beautiful landscape riding horses was the best activity in Mendoza so far. I couldn't wish for a better host than Nicolas and his family! So kind, friendly and very helpful. Even his young children couldn't wait to help and were so excited to have some visitors and chatting about what is going... More

All of the staff is amazing and we particularly loved writing with the kids that live there too. The area where we rode... More

We had a great day horse trekking in the snow. We saw six condors, the horses were quiet and incredibly sure footed and the gaucho was friendly and attentive. The lunch and wines were enjoyable
