In winter the mountains around are snow-capped and on certain days we can ride up as far as the snow, usually in full sun. In summer it is warmer, the rivers sparkle, the rock pools invite and the cactus may be in flower.

You will feel the mountains in a way it is impossible to describe. The mountains are steep, the paths often narrow but the routes we take are safe if you go with our excellent guides. This trip has been rated by Trip Advisor as one of the top 20 ‘ things to do in Santiago’ when visiting Chile.

Things to do in Santiago – Who is it for?

People wondering what to do in Santiago with a free day and who would enjoy a great tour, an adventure into the Andes. Perfect for everyone: first-time riders and onwards, people looking for a real taste of Chile, things to do around Santiago.

We will send you into the mountains on horseback with our great team of guides. Our guides are real working arrieros (Chilean cowboys) experts in horsemanship, travelling and survival in the Chilean Andes in the Cajon de Maipo. Our horses are strong, quiet and well-mannered. This is one of the top things to do in Santiago.

Children on Horseback

We are happy to take children into the mountains and they usually get wonderful pleasure out of a ride  of this kind. However, it is not suitable for very young children (7 and over). Also it is normal to offer discounts for children in most activities but we have the problem that children put a much greater responsibility on us and also a greater cost. We normally send at least one extra guide and horse to make sure that children get proper care and attention as there are risks involved. For that reason we cannot sensibly give discounts, although we try our best to give a reasonable price.
