Ride against the gauchos at Estancia Huechahue!

Saddle up cowboy and compete with the gauchos, Argentine style!

From the 19th-26th September, the province of Neuquén celebrates the Aparte Campero, a week long riding extravaganza when traditionally dressed gauchos (Argentine cowboys) flock to Estancia Huechahue from all over the province to compete in a number of traditional riding events. Estancia Huechahue offers guests the chance to hone their lassooing technique and test their horsemanship skills against the gauchos in separating cattle against the clock. The event culminates in a huge traditional "Asado" (barbecue), a fitting way to end such a time-honoured spectacle. Last Frontiers can offer an 8 day trip to Argentina including 7 nights at the Estancia Huechahue to take part in the Aparte Campero from £3383 per person. Prices are based on two people sharing a room and include international flights with Iberia, internal flights with Lan Airlines, one night bed & breakfast in Buenos Aires at a 4* hotel, all airport transfers and 7 nights full board at Estancia Huechahue including all riding and activities. Please contact us for more information.
