We're a chilean family of 4 people: our parents and us (17 and 18 years old). The summer of 2010 three of us went on a 2 day ride with the same company which was so amazing that we planned a longer one for 2011, from "Laguna Sofia" (next to Puerto Natales) to "Estancia La Cumbre" in "Sierra Baguales". It lasted 6 nights and 7 days. Only our mother has a lot of experience on horse riding, so the rest of us were a bit tired on the first days. It didn't matter anyway because it was so well organized that you could choose to go by car when you felt like it. After the 4th day it was no longer necessary. The horses were extraordinary, "criollo" race (excellent for the topography and the weather), very well trained and equipped. The guide was awesome, friendly, with a deep knowledge of the area and the local culture and people (chilean "gaucho" life), always taking very good care of us and the horses !!. We chose to have different accommodation styles throughout the circuit, from tents, local houses ("estancias" houses) to very pleasant hotels ("Hotel Cerro Guido" and "Hostel Las Chinas", the last one with no electricity ... cosy fireplace, incredible experience and wonderful meals !!). The landscapes ... just awesome, breathtaking (see some of the pictures), just don´t forget to bring appropiate clothes. Summary: the whole experience was absolutely wonderful, highly recommendable. If you have any question please contact me: [--]

My husband and I did a two day trek with Criollo around the Laguna Amarga area of Torres Del Paine and had the most amazing time. Megan, joint owner and Boris's wife, came and met us in our hostal in Puerto Natales the previous night to explain what we would be doing and make sure we understood where we needed to be and when. She also helped us with our onward journey into the park and made some great suggestions about what to do when we got there. Boris (owner, guide and brilliant horseman) looked after us really well on the trek and made sure we had a great time. His horses were amazing on the terraine and were incredibly well trained, he clearly loves them a lot! Although I have ridden for many years, my husband has very limited experience but the trails Boris picked were suitable for both of us. Safety equipment (hard hats & chaps) were provided and of a good standard. Boris made (and carried) our lunch which was very good and far too much! I cant praise this enough and I really hope to go back one day and do a longer trip.
