Experience a real “fiesta gaucha” (a gaucho party) on this full-day tour from Buenos Aires to Estancia Santa Susana, a traditional ranch in the Argentine countryside. A South American version of North American cowboys, the Gauchos live on the plains of Argentina. In Santa Susana, they offer a full day of ranch-style activities, from horseback riding to a traditional folklore show, to a barbecue lunch with wine and a performance of their fantastic horsemanship skills. .



Route
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Arrêt à: Estancia Santa Susana, Provincial Route 6 188, Los Cardales B2814HIE Argentine

Depart Buenos Aires in a comfortable coach for a scenic journey through the Argentine pampas (plains) to Estancia Santa Susana, located in Los Cardales. When you arrive at this traditional estancia (ranch), your day of fun with the Gauchos begins with a friendly welcome at the ranch pub with empanadas and wine.
Join a tour of Santa Susana's attractions, including its museum and church, before enjoying a carriage or horseback ride through the ranch grounds.
Back at the ranch, you will enjoy a delicious parrillada (Argentinian barbecue) of specialties with sausages and chicken, accompanied by salads and drinks (red and white wine, soda, water and coffee). Then, enjoy a sip of mate (an Argentinian drink of yerba mate leaves infused in hot water) and finish your meal with a pastelito (pastry)!
During lunch, be entertained by a tango demonstration and a folkloric show of classical music and dance and watch a fabulous performance of boleadoras, a game of throwing weapons used by gauchos.
When you're done eating, the real fun begins as you watch the Gauchos perform at their best. Be impressed by a ring race (nicknamed the sortja), herd gathering and a race of cuadreras, a typical gaucho game.
When your relaxing day at the ranch ends, you'll be driven back to Buenos Aires and dropped off at a downtown location.
