A fast paced horse riding holiday, going between four cattle ranches, in the region just south of the great Iberá wetlands. There will be plenty of galloping, a chance to work with the gauchos, play polo, marvel at the wonderfully abundant wildlife of Corrientes province and it will all be topped off with lots of Argentina’s famous beef and wine.
