Horseback riding Chile

Horseback ridings in Chilean Patagonia will give you an experience you will never forget. If you would like to have an adventure like this, we will tell you about the places that offer horseback riding tours in the Aysén and Magallanes regions.

The Chilean Patagonia attracts thousands of tourists every year thanks to its magical surroundings, which allow people to disconnect from the fast urban pace.

Even though this large zone can be walked on foot, by vehicle or by bicycle, today at Chile Travel we want to talk about horseback riding. For that reason, we are going to tell you about three places in the Aysén and Magallanes regions where you can go horseback riding and get carried away by the southernmost of Chile.

Cerro Castillo

It’s one of the most famous horseback riding tours in the Aysén region. Located between the district of Coyhaique and Río Ibáñez, the Cerro Castillo National Park offers three hours of horseback riding that will allow you to enjoy its impressive turquoise waters and its marvelous surroundings.

If you are looking for a more advanced experience in the same area, you can find tours of up to 14 days, which explore Villa Cerro Castillo, Lago Lapparent and Lago General Carrera.

Torres del Paine

It is famous for its imposing peaks and majestic glaciers. Experiencing the Torres del Paine National Park on horseback will allow you to immerse yourself much deeper into its beauty which is recognized worldwide.

One of the most popular horseback rides is the one that goes all over Lago Nordenskjold. You will be able to contemplate a real nature oil painting due to the beauty of its waters, which cross Salto Grande waterfalls to flow into Lago Pehoé.

The horseback ride starts at Río Serrano and ends at the lake viewpoint, a tour of nearly five hours.

Tierra del Fuego 

The remoteness of Tierra del Fuego makes it an ideal destination to disconnect from the world while horseback riding. From the foothills of the Cordillera de Darwin, you can travel around the surroundings of this archipelago full of magic, where you will even see wild horses.

There are tours from one to nine days. There are also tour operators that will allow you to live the experience as a local who rides his/her horse every day.

Plan your horseback ride in Chilean Patagonia

Make sure to plan your horseback ride in advance in Chilean Patagonia. Research the available routes, choose the level of difficulty that best adjusts to your experience, and make sure you have the appropriate equipment, such as resistant boots and waterproof clothing.

Give preference to a tour registered with Sernatur. Remember to treat the horse with respect and be responsible with your tour guide, who will have advanced knowledge of the area which you are going to explore.
