Today it is a thriving cattle operation and invites a select number of guests to experience this truly unique lifestyle where horses and cattle still roam free and where much of the food is home-grown.The riding program is tailored to the needs of the guests, so whilst they can cater for novices who are fit and enjoy a challenge, there is plenty of scope for fast and challenging rides.
At Huechahue there are great horses, masses of space and lots to do on horseback! Experience fast scenic riding with also opportunities to help the Gauchos with the cattle work, there will be various riding terrains from water-meadows to rugged climbs opening up in to valleys formed many years ago by glacier actions.
