Although El Chalten is known for its superb hiking and mountain climbing, its pristine wild scenery also lends itself perfectly to some spectacular riding.

Los Cerros lodge has stables just a few yards from the hotel, and arranges half day rides along riverbanks, past waterfalls and through panoramic valley views, with the Fitz Roy Massif mountain range always visible.

Choose a route that passes the Cerro Torre base camp en route for beautiful Lake Torre, or make for Rio Blanco base camp, where you can dismount and enjoy some trekking before heading the horses homewards.
