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.
