The program begins with a car transfer (230 kilometers) from Ushuaia to the starting point: Estancia Maria Luisa, a typical Patagonian ranch for breeding cattle. Our road passes through some of the most iconic landscapes of Tierra del Fuego (Garibaldi Pass through the Andes and Lake Fagnano panorama). At this point we reach the end of the road and thus the civilized World. It is here that we will meet our horses for the first time. A horse will be assigned to each guest at this point. We will load our luggage and so it is then that the real adventure begins for 10 days, ending in Estancia La Chaira.
There is about six to seven hours of horse riding a day, including breaks for lunch. The average distance per day is 30 km.
We will sleep in both shelters and tents,depending on the location. Tents will be provided. However, sleeping bags and sleeping mats are not. Clients are required to bring these with them.
This tour is considered to have a medium difficulty level. A basic knowledge of horse riding is required along with a good condition of health is necessary. The terrain of our route is varied but is dominated by long flat beaches. There are sections of peatland (turba) where it is often necessary to dismount and walk on foot. Additionally, there are areas of and grassy meadows, dense forest and occasionally we pass along cliff edges.
