Day 1

On arrival at Punta Arenas airport you will be met by your guide who will escort you and the rest of the group to your hotel, Rey Don Felipe, in the town centre.
In the evening we will dine in a local restaurant and give you a brief on the ride.

Day 2

We have a morning tour of the memorial museum which is dedicated to memorabilia of the first settlers cir 1856. We will then travel to our first estancia stay, Rio Penitente, which was founded by Scottish pioneers in 1891. After lunch we shall meet our horses which will take us on our journey through Patagonia. We give instruction at this point and assure that everyone is appropriately matched to their mount. The afternoon ride will be followed by a relaxed evening at the estancia with a traditional Patagonian barbecue.

Day 3

Today we have a day of riding from estancia Rio Penitente, we will gallop across open “pampa”, wade through Penitente river, wind through woodlands and rest for lunch at an old “Puesto”.
We return to the estancia for the evening.

Day 4

We take an early transfer to the estancia Puerto Consuelo, (Comfort port) the first farm to be founded in the Ultima Esperanza Province. It was Captain Hermann Eberhard whom sailed in a dingy to this breathtakingly beautiful corner of Patagonia in 1893 and subsequently settled there. From the farm we shall take a wonderful ride to the park Villa Luisa which was where Eberhard built his splendid mansion.
Unfortunately in the 70´s due to government unsettlement the family decided to demolish the house. Today the remains are a reminder of what great vision and achievement Eberhard had made during the early years of settlement. We shall stop for a barbecue lunch at the “quincho” that now stands there and relax and enjoy the scenery. For the evening we will be staying in the beautiful hamlet Puerto Bories on the shores of the Ultima Esperanza sound.
We shall stay at the pleasant guesthouse, Bories House.

Day 5

Early morning transfer again to Estancia Puerto Consuelo. Today we set off across the pampa to the Milodon cave which Capt Eberhard discovered in 1895. The name “Milodon” was given after the remains of a giant sloth dating back 10,000 years ago where found there by Eberhard. We continue the ride to Laguna Sofia, through ancient Lenga forests and open valleys until we reach a Condor lookout point on the cliffs of Laguna Sofia. After lunch we take a transfer to our stay for the night at the travellers inn Tres Pasos which use to be frequented by the Noble prize poet Gabriela Minstral.

Day 6

Today we set off from the travellers inn Tres Pasos and ride through beautiful countryside until we arrive at a small farming settlement Cerro Castillo. This ride will take us around lagoons, through woodland valleys and up to a lookout point to see the Torres del Paine National Park. Tonight we stay at Hotel El Pionero. This house use to be the home of an English gentleman Mr Saunders whom was one of the managers who worked for the company “Explotadora de Tierra del Fuego 1893 – 1943”.

Day 7

From the farming settlement Cerro Castillo we set off on a challenging days ride across the pampa to estancia Cerro Guido on the Eastern border of the Torres del Paine National Park. This is a long, but rewarding days ride.
The evening is spent at Cerro Guido at this beautifully restored farm house that offers privileged views of the Towers of Paine.

Day 8

Today we have a wonderful ride to the outpost Las Chinas which is on the same estancia Cerro Guido.
We will ride through mountain passes and along high ridges that will enable us to have spectacular views of the towers, Sarmiento lake and the impressive Baguales mountain range. The evening will be spent at this homely house Las Chinas in a remote and pristine corner of Patagonia.

Day 9

One of the most beautiful rides of the trip today we head to Laguna Azul. With the towers of Paine as our constant back drop we ride through diverse terrain of pampa and woodland until we reach the Las Chinas waterfall where we will stop for lunch. By early afternoon we arrive at Laguna Azul where our transfer will pick us up and transfer us to the hotel/spa Las Torres. Las Torres, originally “Estancia Paine” was one of the first estancia in the area.

Day 10

We shall take a wonderful walk up to the towers today. Three hours to reach the base and two & half down. There is the option to relax at the spa which offers therapeutic massages and a Jacuzzi or just relax and take a shorter walk around the area. The evening will be spent at Las Torres again.

Day 11

We return to Puerto Natales by boat down the Ultima Esperanza fjord, visit Serrano glacier then stop for a traditional Patagonia barbecue lunch in Estancia Puerto Consuelo. In the afternoon we have the last ride of the trip from Puerto Consuelo over the pampa to Puerto Bories for our farewell evening meal at Bories House. (Option to take a transfer back to Bories House)
