After 1 hour driving we will left the road ant take a path between hills to get into Los Potreros Experience.

DAY 3. ESTANCIA LOS POTREROS
Trail riding is tailored to suit ability and the hills provide a surprising variety of landscapes and terrain. Rocky outcrops give way to open hillsides. Hidden valleys lead to tumbling waterfalls and wooded paths. Trails take you to swimming holes and spectacular viewpoints, or further afield to neighbouring lands that offer a glimpse of rural life, past homesteads, churches and remote schools. You will enjoy this day getting in touch with riding experiences, horses and gauchos.

DAY 4. ESTANCIA LOS POTREROS
Every day at the estancia is different. The would-be gauchos amongst you can canter along grassy hilltops, take a dip in natural rock pools, visit local churches on horseback, help round-up the young horses (to protect them from the elusive puma), learn how to lasso, or have a go at polo.
Out of the saddle, the cattle and horse trails make for wonderful walking, taking guests to awe-inspiring viewpoints and hidden waterfalls whilst experiencing the plentiful birdlife and colourful wildflowers, or watching the gauchos at work. Enjoy the best of Argentine food and wine with home-reared beef washed down with Malbec. The serenity and landscape lend themselves to those who enjoy painting, photography or writing, or simply curling up with a book, whilst good conversation and a gin and tonic are never far away.

DAY 5. ESTANCIA LOS POTREROS - UNESCO SITE - AIRPORT
After breakfast we will start the trip back to Córdoba, but visiting first one of our most important legacy:
2 Jesuit Estancias – declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site! The location of this Estancias is not random. The Royal Road to the capital of the viceroyalty used to go through this area. In 1618, the Jesuits acquired the land with its grape varieties, the mill, cows, oxen and pigs to develop the economy of Compañia de Jesús community.
