  1. Rated 5 out of 5


    I had an amazing experience horseback riding in Farellones with a Chilean cowboy (arriero)! A guide picked me up from my house in the morning and took me to the ranch, where we met the arriero for a beautiful ride in the mountains. We passed through streams and rode along trails overlooking gorgeous valleys, followed the whole time by friendly dogs and, at times, cows. The guide was able to translate my questions for the arriero so I could learn more about his life. The ride was challenging, but suitable for a beginner. The whole tour was very flexible and customizable my interests and needs. I had trekked in the Andes outside Santiago before, and this was by far by favorite way to experience the beautiful mountains. It was one of the most unique and memorable experiences I had while traveling Chile for two months. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see the Andes and meet a local cowboy who has lived there his whole life!

    We’re sitting on the 24th floor balcony of our Air B&B thinking about the highlights of our past few days in Santiago. Today we finished a horseback riding tour arranged for east of the city and into the snow capped Andes. And since we loved it, we’ll do a review. My wife researches the devil out of any trip/side trip we take. This one was no exception. When she couldn’t find reviews, she sent emails to the organizaion, all expertly and quickly responded to, and she quickly set up this trip. We were picked up on time by our friendly and engaging guide, Rodrigo, and escorted to our ride. Whisked outside the city, by driver Patricio, we arrived, down a twisting gravel road, to an outpost from an old movie. Waldo, authentically and naturally attired as the Chilean cowboy he is, had the horses ready. We strapped on chaps and set out; down dusty roads, into the brush, through the river, and up the side of the mountains, to a grand lookout over the valleys below. Wonderful! Then we wandered back down the valleys to a lunch by a cascading stream…and the horse corals. We had one small glitch on our trip. The measure of quality isn’t lack of problems, it is the ability to solve them. We noted a problem while at the top of the ride and it was solved before were returned to the stables…and repaired far beyond our expectations. We left feeling we had made new friends. I’m sure we are correct.
