Depart Buenos Aires in a comfortable coach for the scenic ride through the Argentine pampas (plains) to an estancia (ranch), for a day of gaucho fun beginning with a friendly welcome reception including empanadas, wine and juice. Visit some of the ranch’s attractions, including the museum and bakery, before watching a milking demonstration – you can even participate in this daily activity if you like! Then watch the gauchos saddle up the horses, and take off on a leisurely horseback ride through the countryside. Back at the ranch, tuck into a delicious BBQ lunch including wine, soda, water and coffee. During lunch, be entertained by a folkloric song and dance show, and then work off your meal by participating in some traditional Argentine dances. Later, go for a carriage or tractor ride, and then watch the gauchos show off their incredible horse-riding skills with ring races and other performances. Before heading back to Buenos Aires, enjoy a glass of mate (an Argentine drink of yerba mate leaves steeped in hot water) accompanied by sweet cakes with quince jelly.
