About
On this spectacular horseback riding day tour in Mendoza, we will start by driving to the base of the Mountains of Cordon del Plata Park, around 80km southwest of Mendoza. On the way, the route offers superb views of the highest mountains, El Plata and the imposing Tupungato volcano. The Ranch House is located at the foot of the Cordon del Plata mountain range and at the heart of the Natural Reserve of the same name.  When we arrive, authentic gauchos will be waiting for us ready to take us further into the mountains on horseback, a fantastic way to explore the valleys and towering mountains of the Central Andes of Mendoza.

Unforgettable
Jan 2020 • Couples
My partner and I had Mateus as our guide for the day. We were blown away by the experience. You will not regret this booking - a gorgeous view of the Andes, friendly horse and the best Asado to date, courtesy of Gaucho Daniel!

Awesome Horseback Riding in the Andes Outside Mendoza
Nov 2019

The driver picked me up on time. We drive over excellent highways, with a photo stop to the horse ranch. Horses were tacked up when we arrived. Saddles are.like US Western but with a metal handle. Stirrups are a leather “boot” insert your shoe. Both reins are held in the same hand. Riding helmets were available. about a dizen riders in our group including guides. Horses are small, responsive and know the trail.

We rode single file and at a walk, down hillsides, across shallow Andean streams and along ridges. Andean condors circled overhead. views are awesome. horses sre sure footed, carefully picking their way down and up the rocky and gravel inclines. At times we entered a cloud mist, at others, the sun peeked out. After an hour and a half we stopped a camp fire where the Gaucho was roasting meat, pork and beef. As it was ready, he made delicious “churi-pan” open face sandwiches with a slice of tomato and optional cheese on top. Water, soft drinks and wine to drink. A group of hikers joined us. They had three dogs along with them for safety. earlier on the trail, the dogs spotted a guanaco, ran after it and took it down. While unusual, dogs will go after a guanaco unless it is weak or can be cornered, Some of our group spotted a puma in the hills. The hour and a half or so ride back, with a couple of view stops, was pleasant.
I am impressed with the professionalism of and highly recommend Andes Vertical.

1 day horseback riding
I booked through Andes vertical and Frederico facilitated the booking very efficiently.
Our trip was amazing and one that every traveler should have. Our guide , Tim and Señor Daniel , the goucho were friendly and knowledgeable. This is Picturesque scenery that has to be seen in person and overall a highly recommended outing !!! great food and wine was also a highlight.
My only regret was that we couldn’t do the 7 day trip ....

Day horse riding AMAZING
Apr 2018 • Friends
Had a fantastic day horse riding in the foot hills of The Andes. I am not an experienced horse rider and was a little nervous at first but the guide and the horses were great. Tim was our guide who made the whole experience easy, fun and very memorable indeed. We had a fabulous asado BBQ out in the bush with the horses next to us, the meat was amazing and even had some wine. The gauchos invited us in to their home and were very hospitable offering us mate and lots of cuddles from their pets. I would highly recommend this trip and Andes Vertical, we actually did three trips with them and each experience was different but great.
