You will leave Buenos Aires for the grassy Pampas, surrounding the city, which extends into the interior for hundreds of miles. When the Spanish began colonizing the area, they harnessed the wealth of the Pampas by ranching them, eventually resulting in vast estancias with grand and boldly designed architecture. The men upon whom it fell to take care of the animals came to be called Gauchos, the Argentine cowboys. This excursion will allow you the opportunity to enter into the romantic world of these gauchos; you will be able to participate in their traditional dances and music during an authentic gaucho festival. The party takes place at a beautiful old ranch and includes horseback riding, hayrides, a typical “asado criollo” (argentine barbeque), wine, and a folklore show of dancing and gaucho horseback skill demonstration.
