For two days we will visit part of the territory of the South Coastal Park, Biosphere Reserve, knowing its plains, its coastal forests and its neighboring paths full of history and folklore ...

This frame is the ideal to enjoy nature in all its splendor, to share a weekend with family, parents and children, with friends and to do photographic hunts and above all things: tour the Argentine pampas on horseback.

There we´ll meet each other among the companions of the journey and share the dinner: a typical picada campera, includes drinks: water and juices (whoever wishes may bring some other drink, including alcoholic drink). Dessert. We spend the night in tents inside the facilities.

Exposición a la Altura

Horse Riding (C)

This point has to do with the weight that we must carry in our backpacks. Trekkings or crossings where we have pack animals allow us to bear less weight on our backs. And the multi-day journeys in Patagonia (without the option of having pack mules) generally make us carry more weight, especially in the early days.

20% of a day, without unevenness or requirement. Example: Pampas horseback riding, initiation workshop

40% horseback riding in the sierras, one or more days: Córdoba, San Luis.

60% Horseback riding in the mountains for 3 or 4 days or in the north of Argentina for several days.

80% Andean Crossing Horseback riding up to 3000 meters (double crossing x Las Loicas).

100% Andean Crossing Horseback Riding up to more than 4000 meters. (Sanmartiniana Los Patos).

Physical (F)

We consider physical demands to the wear that we can suffer both aerobic (climbs = possible shortness of breath) and muscle (resistance = many hours walking) and of legs and joints (descents = knees / ankles).

20% half a day or less with little unevenness.

40% more sustained unevenness and longer working days

60% Long ascents and descents with a longer duration.

80% Demanding effort of legs in resistance. Very long days.

100% Maximum demand. Aerobic and constant force leg work

Technical (T)

The technical difficulty is mainly based on the handling of the horse and the actions to be performed.

20% prairie / pampa.

40% trails with moderate ups and downs.

60% Steeper slopes and trails.

80% Steep descents and ascents.

100% Very steep descents and ascents.

Psycho (P)

We maintain that this point, the psychological factor, represents a relevant factor. Each one needs a factor of conviction, confidence, self-control and will power to achieve a goal. And depending on the attitude with which we face distances, slopes, terrain and many other objective factors, we can achieve performance with very different results.

20% We will not be much affected.

40% This is a normal level of attention.

60% We require more motivation, enthusiasm and concentration.

80% The activity will require us to be very connected and convinced.

100% Maximum control and emotional-psychological performance.

Adventures (A)

It is the factor that, the height above sea level, influences us depending on the activity we carry out. Managing and overcoming symptoms caused by altitude is the key to this point

0% + sea level.

20% Up to 2000 masl.

40% + 2000 masl.

60% + 4000 masl.

80% + 5000 masl.

100% + 6000 masl.
