El Ombu de Areco Estancia is a traditional ranch located in San Antonio de Areco, at the heart of gaucho (cowboy) country and a 1.5-hour drive from Buenos Aires. On this tour, spend an entire day at the estancia, with activities including horseback riding, a traditional ‘asado’ barbecue lunch, and a thrilling gaucho show.

On arrival at the ranch, meet the gauchos and saddle up for a fun horseback ride (suitable for all abilities) or horse carriage ride around the estancia.

Next, sit down to enjoy a traditional lunch of ‘asado’ barbecue, including delicious Argentine steak (vegetarian options also available), salads, and dessert, accompanied by Argentine Malbec wine. While you eat, be entertained by a thrilling folklore show, including live music, folk dancing, and a dramatic horsemanship display by the gauchos.
