Day 1: Mendoza / Manzano Histórico – Horseback Riding

At noon, lunch box with refreshments and then resumption of the ride mounted on the horses. In the Scaravelli Refuge (called «Real La Mula Muerta»), we will prepare the camp to spend the first night in the mountain range. Dinner and campfire.
Day 2: Ascent to the Argentine Portillo
After breakfast, once prepared the load and the animals, we will start a day that will not give a break to our senses. This time, the horses took us to the porthole called “Portillo Argentino” at 4380 m.a.s., from which we can contemplate a splendid view of the colossal Andes mountain range. Lunch in a frame of singular beauty. Return to the camp. The night will find us next to the campfire enjoying a delicious dinner that will give us energy for the next day.
Day 3: Manzano Histórico / Mendoza
The end of the horseback riding approaches. Breakfast opens the way to the last day. The mountain range appears imposing and little by little it says goodbye. The horse guides us to a moderate pace place until where we stop for lunch. After a short break, we will start the final leg of the ride thanking the mountain and the animals that made it possible. Arrive at “Manzano Histórico” where a vehicle waits us for transfer to the city of Mendoza. End of tour and of our services.
