Go Horseback Riding in La Campana Park
Only an hour and a half north of Santiago is one of the Central region's best kept secrets: La Campana National Park. The park covers over 20,000 acres and preserves over 60,000 Chilean palms (some over 400 years old and multiple stories tall). To appreciate the coastal mountains, saddle up with a local "huaso," or cowboy, to explore the trails, riding through palm forests, streams, and up and down mountain sides with a stop for a shady picnic. Talk to local outfitter Chile Off Track to help set up your ride.
