Northern Chile: Adventures in the North 2021

Discovering Chile on horseback is not for everyone. Although La Serena is a popular seaside resort for local tourists, it is almost unknown to Westerners. A region known for its dry and mild climate, the blue of the Pacific Ocean and the picturesque fishing villages hidden along the coast, as well as the “pisco”, a colorless brandy extracted from the grapes of local vineyards. Chile on horseback means lonely valleys, endless mountain roads, the peace and quiet of the majestic Andes on whose peaks the condors soar. Our adventure will begin near Rio Hurtado, where the hacienda that will host us is located and near which it is possible to visit an ancient ceremonial site where there are dozens of cave paintings. We will ride following the ancient traces of the Inca civilization and the gold seekers… .a journey through the Andes, far from any trace of civilization. We will walk along “Linia Santa Rosa”, an ancient path still traveled today by shepherds with their animals. Riding the tireless criollos horses we will explore the wild and unspoiled Sierra and the immense Andes, breathing in a romantic atmosphere of infinite purity. A half that has only partially modified its landscape, dotted with sporadic small villages. Sunny for most of the year, crystal clear waters and incredibly starry nights will give you a vacation to remember for years to come.
