Information not currently available.
Approximately 4¾ Hours
Your journey begins in Port of Castro and heads north along a rural road. Keep an eye out for some of the typical houses of the island on your way to the foothills of Piuchen Mountains.
Listen to a short safety briefing, then pick a horse and begin your ride along the paths on the countryside, with thick vegetation of Coihues, to the shores of Lake Rio San Pedro. Here you will see farmlands surrounded by an evergreen forest.
A light snack will be served by the riverside.
Although only a few horse flies live near this area, wear light-colored clothing to avoid attracting them. Bring insect repellent. Minimum age is 12 years. Maximum weight is 190 lbs. Participants must be in good physical condition. Not advisable for those with back problems. Your guide will do his/her best to speak English, but please keep in mind that the remoteness of the port/ limited tourism infrastructure here is part of the city’s charm, and bear with any language difficulties he/she may encounter.
