Lo Barnechea

Central Andes, Chile

Discover a hidden place of the Andes Mountain range in a special way, with a horseback ride along the “Arrieros” or local cowboys.

You will feel the connection with the Mountains and experience this beautiful place full of nature like in ancient times our ancestors have done it, all these while the stories from our guides are told. From the beginning of the ride you can contemplate the flora and fauna of the area, which is composed mostly of endemic species and has the characteristics of the sclerophyllus forest. On this silent place you are going to be delighted by the sound of the birds which are part of the fauna that you can meet in this ecosystem located in the Andes mountain range. We are going to take a break where we will enjoy a privileged view of the city with the company of the horses and a majestic view from the Andes, for later coming back to the starting point of the horseride.

The mixture of wonders of the area of El Arrayan along with the connection that is going to be created with the horse make of this an ideal activity for people who love animals and the outdoor life. An excellent way of connecting the human being with the magic of the animal.

Central Chile enjoys an ideal Mediterranean climate, mild and temperate. The warmest months are November to February when temperatures reach 29ºC / 84ºF, with a lovely distinct lack of humidity. Nevertheless, during this low mountain trek, the temperature might drop considerably if the day is cloudy and the wind blows strongly, reaching a low of up to 15ºC / 59ºF.

What you need to bring

Long pants, tennis or trekking shoes, wind-blocking fleece jacket, sun hat, and sunscreen.

The horses

We use Chilean horses that are on average shorter but no less strong than European horses. These animals are used to riding on a rough and sloped terrain. Most of them are used for daily cattle duties and are always on their best behavior. The saddle has been adapted locally from Arab and Spanish saddles and is lined in leather that does not heat up in the sun and provides maximum comfort.

Itinerary modifications

We reserve the right to change the order of the itinerary under the sole discretion of the trip guide and based on operational considerations. The trip guide can also modify, change or eliminate part of the itinerary based on safety/weather considerations.
