Gaucho Day Trip from Buenos Aires: Don Silvano Ranch

Highlights

  • Hassle-free pickup and drop-off from your downtown Buenos Aires hotel

  • Includes an Argentine-style barbecue lunch with wine

  • Go horseback riding and learn about life on the ranch

Summary

Board a comfortable coach at your downtown Buenos Aires hotel and head out into the Argentine pampas (plains). Attend a friendly welcome reception upon arrival at Estancia Don Silvano that includes juice, wine, and traditional empanadas. Visit the ranch's bakery and its museum before attending a milking demonstration. Help the gauchos milk the cows yourself if you like, then watch as they saddle up the horses. Climb on a tame horse and enjoy a relaxed ride through the surrounding countryside. After the ride, eat a barbecue lunch including chicken, ribs, sausages, potato salad and ice cream for dessert. Watch a traditional Argentinian folkloric show including singing and dancing while you enjoy your beverages, including wine, soft drinks, coffee, and water. Get on your feet and try out some of the dances yourself before opting for a carriage or tractor ride to view other parts of ranch. Watch the gauchos participate in ring racing and other demonstrations of their incredible horsemanship. Have a snack of quince jelly on sweet cakes before boarding your bus back to the city. Try mate, a traditional Argentine drink made of yerba mate leaves steeped in hot water that has its own rituals and history. Your full-day estancia (ranch) excursion on the pampas ends with drop-off in downtown Buenos Aires.
