Tour Details

Horseback Riding

Saddle up for the Strait of Magellan - perhaps the most amazing horseback ride of your life!

After meeting your guide, you will drive to a beautiful bay located approximately 17 miles south of Punta Arenas in Chile.

Upon arrival, professional local tour guides will welcome you and provide all necessary information and instruction before the ride begins.

You will set out along the Strait of Magellan near a beautiful wetland inhabited by native birds, insects and flora. Astride your horse, you'll enjoy the scenery and appreciate the abundant fauna such as quetrus, juarjuales, geese, foxes and rabbits.

The tour continues along a path in the forest up to a viewpoint where you can see the historic Strait of Magellan, with the islands of Tierra del Fuego and Dawson in the distance.

From there, you will ride back to the lodge to enjoy a homemade snack of local bread and cheese or jams before heading back to Punta Arenas and your ship.

Please note: This is a scenic ride and not a narrated tour. The guides are trained horsemen with experience with horses. They may or may not speak fluent English.

A most enjoyable Excursion
March 31, 2020
We really enjoyed the horse riding. It was only about a 30 minute car ride from the ship. Everything was ready for us when we arrived. The horses were saddled and ready to go. The lady who led us was very nice, smiling and helpful. The ride had lots of challenges like crossing a river, undulating trails and along a beach. The horses were easy to manage and suitable for beginners. The lady was always checking to make sure we were all okay and adjusted saddles etc along the way. There were also two other experienced riders with us. My horse did go for a gallop along the beach which was fun but the lady came and slowed it down. After we got back to the ranch we had tea and homemade bread and jam. I would highly recommend this tour. It was worth the money.

Great Personalized Excursion
April 15, 2019
This was a great, off the beaten path (literally) excursion. The horse back riding includes going through a cattle farm, a small river crossing and a ride along the beach. We were lucky enough to see dolphins in the bay. I would highly recommend this excursion.

The best. We were the only 2 people for this and we had 2 guides who were great about letting us ride and gallop on the beach. Then we had delicious snacks prepared by the owner's wife.

Gorgeous trail ride and wonderful hosts
January 18, 2019
We were a party of eight ages ranging from 7 to 40. Every single person felt comfortable and enjoyed every minute of this gorgeous trail ride. We were very grateful for the kind family that hosted this trail ride. The most delicious pastries and fresh bread with warm milk were served at the end. It was such a treat! Thank you for the wonderful experience- Must do excursion!

This excursion greatly exceeded my expectations. It was a small group: 3 plus the guide/owner. He was great and took us to some beautiful locations. My companions were a little uncomfortable at first but he put them at ease and we all had a great ride. I would recommend this to anyone who would like to get away from the hustle and bustle and loves nature.

It was wonderful!

My friend and I went horseback riding in the Punta Arenas area. Not being on a horse for 37 years I was a bit petrified about having to go - but our guide Guillermo did an excellent job in picking the right horse for me - a pretty old gal named Baillerina (ba-yer-ina) who was very gentle. Guillermo had to deal with three levels of riders - and did a great job in not pushing any of us beyond our capabilities. The ranch they lived on has been in the family for five generations since his ancestors came over from Germany. He and his wife Carolina have cottages on the ground that they appear to rent out to guests as well. After nearly three hours on the horses - we were taken back the ranch for some hot tea and sweet treats made by Carolina - before her dad drove us back to the pier. The ride and scenery were one of the highlights of our trip. I would highly recommend.
