Patagonia, located on the southern extreme of Chile, is wild and rough with a fascinating past. From its indigenous inhabitants, to the glorious years of sheep farming and the men that conquered this rugged land. Today its populated mostly by men, with jobs that have almost been forgotten, like, puesteros (camp tenders), ovejeros (shepherds), alambradores (wire fencers), amansadores (horse tamers), etc. In these southern lands you can still find "tropillas" (groups/teams) of wild horses in their most natural state. The goal of this programme is to learn about the landscape and the culture of the people of Patagonia and especially to observe the last remaining "tropillas" of wild horses a long side the puesteros of Valle Hermoso, who have invited us to share this extreme experience in their post.

We would like to clarify that:
Our intention is not to sell a classic tour because we would not like to treat you as a tourist and only show you things of beauty. Our aim is to show you a way of life that is disappearing, and that is linked to the life and equestrian culture of Tierra del Fuego.
We have years of experience but new challenges can always occur. Sometimes nature imposes its conditions and we must accept them. It is important for you to be flexible in your travel arrangements.
Any questions you may have we will be glad to answer.
It is vital to bring all the adequate equipment necessary for an expedition like this. Here are some suggestions:
