Previous riding experience is required

Leaving from the stables, you’ll get to know your horse and familiarize yourself with its smooth, powerful, instinctive rhythm. As you head along the west hillside of Cerro Paine, our expert baqueanos will help you take on the thrilling challenge of riding up its beautiful trail. Keep your eyes open for birds as you enter one of the oldest forests in the Park, filled with native Lenga trees. You’ll stroll leisurely until you reach the tree line, where a surprise awaits. The trees disappear and in their place stand the famous Las Torres Mountains, along with other awesome lake and valley views. Guided by our baqueanos, you’ll love getting a glimpse into their culture, the true lifeblood of Patagonia.

What will you see?

Paine Massif

A small but striking mountain range that beholds the majority of the Park’s top sights, including the Las Torres Mountains, Mount Cerro Paine, Ascencio Valley, and the Francés Valley.

D’Agostini Viewpoint

An incredible panoramic on Mount Cerro Paine which looks out towards a valley, glaciers, lakes, and the famous granite Las Torres Mountains.

Native Lenga Forest

One of Patagonia’s iconic trees, Nothofagus pumilio thrives in areas with low temperatures and heavy snow. Lenga woodland provides a habitat for many animals such as Magellanic woodpeckers, Austral parakeets, Chilean flickers and other forest birds.

Ascencio Valley

This valley builds increasing excitement, as its magestic views lead to Las Torres Base Viewpoint. It features the Oggioni Mountains in the distance, a windy river below, a grassy slope on one side, a rocky incline on the other, and a trail that gets steeper and steeper until you enter a native forest of lenga and Antarctic beech trees.

Paine River

Originating in Lake Dickson, this well-known river flows for 9km / 5.5mi into various lakes throughout the Park. It drops into Lake Nordenskjöld before arriving at Lake Pehoé via the Salto Grande Waterfall, from which it heads to the Salto Chico Waterfall, to finally find its place in Lake Toro.
