Enjoy an authentic experience of the Argentinian Pampas with a visit to a local estancia or ranch outside of Buenos Aires. We’ll collect you from your hotel and take you to the estancia, where you’ll be welcomed with traditional Argentine empanadas. Stroll around the grounds and settle into the slower pace of life. Take a seat at the table as we enjoy a traditional asado – barbecue – lunch together, including world-renowned Argentine beef. For a bit of entertainment while you eat, gauchos in traditional dress will dance to their unique folk music.

Following lunch, the fun moves on to an open field where you can admire an impressive display of the gauchos’ horse-riding skills (weather dependent).
