Half Day Horseback Riding Potrerillos:
We leave the city at 8am and head for one of the most beautiful places in the province. Potrerillos is located in the foothills of the iconic Cordón del Plata, at 1900 meters.
The mountain scenery and cabins scattered throughout the valley make this is a special place, where the mountain, sun and river merge. The majesty of this framework, along with the beauty of the natural surroundings, clean air, climate and the mountain atmosphere is the ideal setting for this activity.
Just after 9.30am we arrive at Don Rafael Moreno’s house. Don, our baqueano is a horse breeder and the owner of the land we are about to explore, his family were one of the first families to inhabit this territory. While preparing the horses we have the opportunity to try the traditional Argentine drink, Mate.
Shortly after we ride our horses along a narrow path, a steep climb leads us to a church view- point; from here you can see the entire Las Vegas valley scattered with cabins and steams.
Now, we leave the village and begin to ride through “La Quebrada de Las Vacas” (the valley of the cows) along the banks of the river that bears the same name and gives life to these immense Altitude wetlands – (the most bio-diverse site in the area with nutrient-rich soil where horses, goats, cows and other livestock graze). Continuing on our journey the path leads into a narrow canyon, after riding for nearly an hour and a half, it is time to dismount our horses and take a short break, which we do here, next to a cave and a small melt-water waterfall.
After resting, we begin our return, descending an hour though Quebrada de Las Vacas until we reach the entrance of the property, where our transfer is waiting. It’s time to say farewell to the Mendoza’s mountains and head back to the city.
