Climb Your Way to Namaste

Equal parts activity and rejuvenation, our days will focus on deepening your yoga practice, replenishing your mind and spirit, and nourishing your body with gourmet local fare. And you’ll need the nourishment because we’ll be exploring the best peaks Patagonia has to offer by foot and hoof. Our horses are Criollos (“Mestizos”), a sturdy native breed that combines Friesians, Quarter Horses, Percherons, and Appaloosa and are perfectly suited to the rough mountain countryside…and snuggles.

 

But, don’t worry. There’s plenty of “down time” to recharge, journal, and enjoy our stunning surroundings.

NOTE: In order to fully enjoy this trip, attendees should be comfortable in the saddle (at all gaits) for 3-4 hours at a time and riding through semi-steep terrain. You should also be fit enough to hike 3-4 hours at a time through varied terrain.

  • There were so many "once-in-a-lifetime" moments on this retreat! Each horseback ride was long and not short on epic scenery, at one moment you may be climbing a mountain overlooking a waterfall, and the next you are galloping through the desert...all topped off with a traditional, home cooked meal at the family's ranch. Our evening dinners were a culinary delight, accompanied by great conversation, tons of laughter and of course, delicious Malbec. I have travelled extensively and this is my third Cowgirl Yoga Retreat, and can say without a doubt - it was my absolute favorite!

  • Yoga, Hiking and Horseback riding in Patagonia sounds amazing, but experiencing it was absolutely phenomenal. The people of Bariloche are incredibly warm and welcoming, the scenery is breathtaking and the food, beer and wine are outstanding. Every detail of the retreat was meticulously planned and was an experience I’ll never forget.

  • The Patagonia Cowgirl Yoga and Hiking Retreat was nothing short of magical. The scenery is amazingly gorgeous and it’s impossible to resist a sense of peace and serenity in these surroundings. The three different horseback riding expeditions allowed us to experience different horses, riding terrains and gauchos. One of my all time favorite moments was getting to run on the horses; it was truly one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life, and one I won’t ever forget!
