If you are in the area, you need to do this! The people are amazing, the food (and wine) is unbelievably good, and the horse riding surreal. Our best day and experience so far in Patagonia. Thank you for an unforgettable day!

We had a wonderful time! The staff were amazing and the lamb meal was incredible! The whole experience was quite cool. The weather for horseback riding was a bit cold however if i would have dressed appropriately it would have been fine! Highly recommend!

We did the full day horseback riding, which was the highlight of our time in Patagonia. First, both Ian and Trisha were absolutely fantastic hosts. It's one thing to see beautiful landscapes, but when your guides are super personable, it makes a big difference. We enjoyed their company. Trisha, who knows the area like the back of her hand, was our guide for the day, and she took us through canyons and rivers, passing one mountain after the other. We could also do a little cantering and watch Trisha and her dogs herd wandering animals in the area. How grand is that? Plus, we loved having their dogs accompany us the entire time. And the horses? Possibly the calmest I've yet to meet. One even nudged me for a scratch. Midway through the day we stopped at a small dwelling for a bite, allowing letting us to relax for a bit and take it all in. The scenery is just stunning. If you love the idea of being in raw and remote wilderness, this is the place to be. End of day, Trisha showed us a small museum on the property which has interesting artifacts from the area, such as fossilized leaves and sharks' teeth. On top of the riding, Ian picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel. During our drive we talked about all things Patagonia, and we appreciated him sharing his knowledge — which was quite interesting — about the area. Ian, Trisha, thanks again for a truly epic day.
