Chile is a country of extreme climatic variation and intoxicating beauty. The remote and often inaccessible nature of this country, makes it an ideal destination to explore on horseback. The arid Atacama Desert in the North, is one of the driest, most formidable locations on planet. Challenging trail rides at high altitude, can take you cantering on sturdy, sure-footed Criollo horses, deep into the desert. A vista of mountains and geysers, interspersed with tiny but lush oases that defy belief. Heading south, discover the pristine blue waters, remote valleys and glacial rivers of The Chilean Lake District. Canter through flower filled meadows, pausing for picnic lunches on lake-side beaches. Ride along dense forest and glacial fringed volcanoes, splashing along the shores of icy, crystal lakes. The snowy tundra of Patagonia in the extreme south, offers a different set of challenges for the adventurous rider. The Torres del Paine National Park has some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. The vast expanses of grassy pampas, flanked by towering mountains and glaciers are perfect for long fast canters.
From exhilarating, challenging camping trips, to relaxing stays in welcoming estancias, a Riding Holiday in Chile will ensure an unbeatable experience.
