Horseback riding in the end of the World
(Patagonia - Ushuaia)
The most southern Horseback riding of the world.
There are many beautifull places all over the world…but there are just a few where you can still watch wild horses. We invite you to CAITA MAPU, where you can see the horses, resting and runnig through the big valleys, thin creeks, and large rivers born in the mountains of the Andes,being watch by the great Condor, from the top the mountains.
