Full day ride
Beautiful ride through waterfalls and forests of our Sanctuary towards the hill La Campana.
This horseback ride is a very popular trip and is a wonderful way to spend the day exploring the high Andes. Highlights include fantastic views, clean air, cool mountain streams and soaring condors.
After arriving at the Cascada de las Animas resort, we’ll cross a swinging footbridge over the rapids of the Maipo river to the corrals where your horse will be saddled and waiting. After a short instruction, we start the ride, heading up into the mountains. We will follow the trail up to the meseta (plateau) rising high above the river valley, quickly gaining over 300 meters in elevation.
After crossing the meseta, we will follow another trail that continues climbing steeply upwards to “La Campana” – a 1730 meter, bell shaped mountain that dominates the landscape surrounding the resort and sanctuary. Atop la Campana, we have a 360 degree view of the Rio Maipo Valley and the surrounding mountains. From la Campana, we continue along a gently ascending trail into the realm of the condor, until we reach the “Cruce de los Maquis”. Cruce de los Maquis is an enchanting spot with a crystal clear stream rushing down the mountainside, surrounded by tall native shade trees and spring flowers. Guests are encouraged to soak in the refreshing pool here while your guide prepares a delicious Chilean “asado” (barbecue) or a delicious vegetarian dish, all accompanied with fresh salads, drinks, wine and beer. This magical place counts for your comfort with tables and bathrooms.
Resting a bit after lunch, we then remount our horses for the return trip back down the mountain, ending up at the corrals.
