Discover the charm of the Argentine pampas with a visit to a local estancia (ranch) outside of Buenos Aires where you will be welcomed with ‘empanadas’ (traditional argentine meat pies). Stroll around the grounds and settle into the slower pace of life, enjoy a traditional asado (BBQ) including the world-renowned argentine beef.
Dining will be ‘family style’ and you could find yourself sharing with other patrons at the estancia. Live entertainment will be supplied by gauchos in their typical dress, dancing to their unique folkloric music. Following lunch, the fun moves on to an open field where you can admire an impressive display of the gauchos’ skilful abilities on horseback (not possible with heavy rain).
- Note: Some walking over uneven ground is involved in this tour. Horseback riding at your own risk and expense.
