Crossing The Andes by Mule
Mule riding expedition, 6 days in Los Andes Mountain Range.
By Patos Valley, Valley Hermoso pass, Mendoza and San Juan provinces, Argentina  
The wild mountains of the majestic Andes range set the stage for / of an unforgettable 6-day trip along a route which was also followed by the troops under the command of General San Martin, our greatest hero, in the year 1817. You will get the chance to learn and revive memories of one of the most important deeds in our History: the Liberation of South America!

After an uphill ride to Espinacito, 4350m. above sea level, you get an impressive view of the highest mountain in America: the mythic Aconcagua.

Herds / flocks of innumerable guanacos and condors will be flying peacefully high above us. The observation of stars in the sky, regarded as the most limpid in the planet, will become an everlasting experience.

The quietness of the place, the sound of guitars and the rounds of mate by the campfire create an ideal ambiance to relax and make new friends.

Our long experience in all–included horse rides warrantees an unforgettable vacation.
