At dusk we arrive at the camp where we will warm us up around the campfire and eat the "asado". We spend the night under the stars or in tents.

Day 2: Horseback riding
After breakfast we go on riding, going deep into the mountains, climbing up to 3,000 mts. (10,000 ft.) and discovering the mysteries of the Andes. If we are lucky we might even spot some condors, guanaco, foxes, “choiques” (ostrich), etc. This is an unforgettable experience! In the afternoon we reach our next campsite where we set up the camp, have dinner and rest.

Day 3: Horseback riding
Today we ride up to 3,000 mts. (10,000 ft.) and from there we have a beautiful view over the Uspallata Valley and the Andes. Far away from stress, computers and phones, it is the perfect moment to enjoy nature and relax! Then, we ride to our next camp to have dinner and spend the night.

Day 4: Horseback riding
Today we will go down a gorge, following a river. It will be a perfect day to take pictures if you haven't taken any so far! We go down in altitude and at the same time you will see the variation in the vegetation. After a break to have lunch and have a nap we go on riding until we reach our last campsite. We will gather some wood and if you feel fit, you can decide to have a walk around! In the evening we will have our last dinner before going to rest.

Day 5: Horseback riding
Today will be our last day on horseback. We ride, enjoying the last views of the inside of the Andes until we reach our final destination in the afternoon. From there, transfer to Mendoza by private vehicle and end of one of the most exciting adventure the Andes can offer us.
