Ride Horseback Across the Andes
Antilco, a horseback riding center, leads treks with a maximum of eight riders at a time over the Andes and all the way into Argentina. Participants cross the mountain range astride sure-footed criollo horses, in the company of guides, setting out from Pucón and riding upward, and eastward, for days. There are pauses for a dips in mountain lakes or to simply take in the sierra’s beauty, and tours include sitting around campfires nightly, cookouts prepared by aides who also handle all the “cowboy” chores. You don’t need to be an expert rider on this adventure, but you do need to be ready for an average of eight hours daily in the saddle. The trip ends in Las Lajas, where private buses takes riders back to Chile. Other Antilco tours take riders through the Lake District, Torres del Paine National Park, and Easter Island.
