Ritoque Expediciones arose from the efforts of Sebastian Lara, horse breeder for all his life, and Maria Elena Rodriguez, dedicated to Pubic Relations, as a way to keep their way of living next to horses and nature and sharing this experience with people.Our objective is to allow Chileans and foreigners to enjoy outstanding nature locations. Our aim in each one of our trips is that our clients get to know as well as possible the flora, fauna and culture of the places that we visit. Our clients will, comfortably and safely, make a special connection with the people and nature of the area.We are part of the Guía de Turismo Rural (Countryside Tourism Guide) of the V region of Chile, supported by Sernatur (Nacional Tourism Service) since 2005; and we received the prize “Premio Sernatur a la Gestión Emprendimiento Turístico 2006”.We are located 3 kilometers north from Concón, on the highway to Quintero. Only 30 kilometres north from Valparaíso, and only two hours from SantiagoRitoque Expediciones nace hace 8 años de la inquietud de Sebastián Lara y María Elena Rodríguez, por mantener un estilo de vida cercano a la naturaleza y los animales. Y compartirla con quienes estuvieran interesados en vivir una experiencia cercana a la vida de naturaleza. Nuestra misión es que chilenos y extranjeros puedan disfrutar de lugares de naturaleza exuberantes en belleza y quietud. Compartimos nuestra forma de cocina, que se caracteriza por comida chilena, generalmente asados siempre alrededor de una gran fogata! Trabajamos con grupos de diverso tamaño, montados sobre un caballo, según se requiera. Organizamos eventos al aire libre, ofreciendo servicio de comidas que montamos en el lugar de la actividad, ya sea en medio de las dunas o a orillas del Estero Mantagua, etc..Generalmente contamos con guías bilingües inglés – español que acompañan a nuestros clientes durante el recorrido. Formamos parte de la Guía de Turismo Rural de la V Región, apoyados por Sernatur desde el 2005 hasta la fecha y recibimos el Premio Sernatur a la Gestión y Emprendimiento Turístico 2006.

Awesome place to horseback and enjoy and uninterrupted day of family bonding. My 9 and 13 thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Parrilla afterwards was well worth it.

I took my 12 year old daughter to Chile for the first time this year. The main thing she wanted to do was ride a horse on the beach or country, with a nice dog running next to us. This is exactly what she got and more. There is just not enough to describe the entire experience. We have never... More

This was the greatest activity! My sons and I had a spectacular day. If you are in the Vina area you have to experience this. The ride, the food, the horses, the scenery, the owner and family make this experience very special and unique.

We've been riding a lot of places, but this one was by far the best. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous: sea, sanddunes, forest... The horses are very well trained and well taken care of. Sebastian is a very genuine man, seems honest and full of trust. The lunch (also veggie options) is very good. So is the pisco and the... More

I travel every fall with my girlfriends and Chile was our destination last October. We spent time in Santiago, then spent 3 days in Valparaiso. We took a bus up to Concon, which was easy and very inexpensive, and met Maria at the easily located gas station. The 3 of us spent an amazing morning riding out with two lovely... More

As a first time rider this was an incredible experience. I never imagined that I could gallop on the beach or gallop up sand dunes and the views are breath-taking. The route we took was diverse and we went though forested areas, sand dunes, and the beach all in a three hour ride. I felt like I was on another... More

Maria Elena is a hostess extraordinaire and our guide (shame on me I can't remember his name - age takes its toll) was great. The whole experience was overall superb and loads of fun from the scenery to the galloping on the beach (which you don't have to do). I am a very inexperienced rider and found no difficulties. -...
