Another way to experience El Calafate. The ride was splendid, not only you get great views and landscpes, but also you get to see eagles, hares and other fauna. Lunch in the nature is great, but I must say, the highlight of the trip is Luciano, he is a great host. Great value for money, would highly recommend to anyone... More

I never said "yes, we are coming" to Luciano. I did, however, got to the point of asking banking details in case we decided to go and so I would be able to do the mandatory 50% deposit (after a quick phone call to re confirm places, of course). We never did the deposit hence no booking was confirmed from... More

Wow what a day! We had been recommended Cabalgata del Glaciar by a friend and we're so glad we did it. Luciano picked us up promptly at 8.30am and took us to the ranch in the national park. We saw a condor on the way (with a 3m wingspan) which we stopped to watch for a few minutes, and then... More

This trip is awesome! Luciano is great to work with, professional and very welcoming. From the time that he picked us up in town, to great lunch, to the trail ride, everything was so fun. Definitely recommend this for a day in El Calafate!

After booking our trip to Patagonia, my girlfriend and I knew we wanted to ride horses while in the region. This experience fit the billing and exceeded expectations. Luciano was easy to communicate with despite the language barrier, and he led us on a beautiful tour that felt as if we had been transported to another time and place. We... More

We loved this experience! The scenery and ride blew us away, with incredible views and mountain trails. Glaciers, lakes, cows, condors, guanacos, and then a rustic lunch and wine over a fire. We loved every second. Luciano, the owner and host, was easy to work with despite language barriers. And he did a good job matching horses to riders. We... More

Découverte de beaux paysages. Luciano est très accueillant et a été aux petits soins avec nous. Un séjour inoubliable. An amazing two day trip in patagonia. Luciano... More

Such a fantastic experience! I didn't want it to end. Luciano and his helper Gabriella were wonderful campaigns that day - offering riding tips and enduring my terrible Spanish. They looked after us well from the moment we were picked up from our hostel in El Calafate. I've already recommended to a friend who went to El Calafate - who... More

This was a truly perfect day: the landscape is spectacular, the horses are sweet and patient, and Luciano is a wonderful host and guide. Even a little light rain turned into a gift when rainbows appeared in the sky: it really doesn’t get any better than riding a horse under a rainbow in Patagonia!
