Full description
Depart Buenos Aires and enjoy the scenic ride through the pampas to Estancia Don Silvano, where you will become a gaucho for the day! Get a friendly welcome of drinks and snacks, including authentic empanadas.

Watch the gauchos saddle the horses, and then set off on a leisurely ride through the countryside. Return to the ranch to tuck into a delicious lunch of grilled sausages, ribs, and chicken with potato salad, served with red and white wine, soda, water, and coffee. Be entertained by a folkloric music and dance show, and then work off your meal by participating in some traditional Argentine dances.

Go for a carriage or tractor ride, and then watch the gauchos show off their incredible horsemanship with ring races and other performances. Sip a traditional maté, made of yerba leaves steeped in hot water, before the return trip to Buenos Aires.
