Welcome to Argentina, the land of horses. There is no better way to immerse yourself in the culture and traditions of these places than to gallop through the pampas… .quechua in the indigenous language, which means “plain without trees”.

Not infrequently you can see the gauchos, during the siesta, with the typical wool poncho and the characteristic headdress while sipping the Mate.
