Our beautiful guest ranch is located in northern Patagonia in the foothills of the Andes in Argentina. Accessible only by horse and steeped in traditional gaucho culture, Estancia Ranquilco offers magical, out of the ordinary, riding adventures.
Estancia Ranquilco is breathtakingly beautiful, rugged, remote and pristine - and the best way to see it is from the back of one of our horses. Our horses are reliable, responsive and energetic, and we have one for every rider, new or advanced.
We offer a range of accommodations for the rider, including all inclusive lodging in our private cottages or a self catering option in simple adobe houses.
In 2010, we are excited to offer horse trekking into the Andes. Seven and ten day trips combine luxury lodging at our ranch with camping in the stunning, ever changing landscapes of the cordillera. Our horse pack trips allow you to reach areas in the mountains inaccessible by car.
Our horse treks are designed to bring you in direct contact with the landscape, animals and people of Patagonia. This is a unique small group horseback adventure into rugged and pristine mountains. You will enjoy breathtaking scenery, excellent local food, sure footed, responsive horses and the serenity only possible in deep nature.
If you love horses and want adventure travel to one of the world’s last frontiers, think Patagonia. Horsemanship here is a way of life. Come join us.
