COUNTRYSIDE AND POLO

5:01 PM Sandra Gutrejde 0 Comments



This full day visit gives guests the chance to immerse themselves as much as they wish in the life of a working Estancia (Ranch), dedicated mainly to raising Hereford and Aberdeen Angus Stock. 
After being picked up from your hotel early in the morning, you will take a 1.5 hour ride in a comfortable vehicle to the town of San Antonio de Areco. You'll take a walking tour in the colonial historical town: Main square, San Antonio’s church, old houses, 200 years old gauchos’́ bar ("pulperĂ­as"), Creole Silversmiths' workshops.
At 11:40 am transfer to an exclusive, authentic "Estancia" (old working ranch), where guests are welcomed to observe and take part in the various stock-rearing activities as they happen on the ranch: milking, driving cattle to harness, vaccination, ear-tagging, de-horning, branding, etc. Guests can explore the 300-hectare (ca 750 acre) estancia on foot or, accompanied by seasoned gauchos, on one of the 38 horses that are part of the working drove. Horse drawn carriages are also available.
A complete lunch will be served, accompanied by folkloric music (or alternative horse demonstration).
4:20 pm departure from the Estancia, return to Buenos Aires.
Approx 6:00 pm arrival to Buenos Aires
