Long horseback tour in Valle Engorda the Fattening Valley
We take rides of a week or more camping in summer, going out into the high cordillera from a campsite around 2000 metres in an area where cattle and horses are pastured. It is more remote, more difficult to get to and set up a long ride in this area.
From here there are many different day’s ride to choose from. You can do them all, or a selection. One are two need experienced riders and all need a degree of fitness.
They are described in full with photos on the following pages:
The Glacier, The Refugio Plantal, Valle Engorda (pictured above) Marmolejo, The fossil valley, El Avion. Riding up and back from the valley where we camp involves another 2 days, so it is easy to have an 8 day ride, or less.
We can also design longer horseback rides if you want them, or just one day rides to get out of Santiago, for the energetic. Rides in this area are longer and more expensive than our normal day rides.
