A DAY IN THE COUNTRYSIDE - ESTANCIA IN THE PAMPAS - Argentina - Argentina

FULL PACKAGES DETAILS

Location: Estancia in the outskirts of Buenos Aires (about 100 km away)
Starting / Ending Point: Pick-up from hotel in Buenos Aires
This excursion leads us to San Antonio de Areco, located at 110 Km away from Buenos Aires and gives a great possibility to see the Argentinean countryside and its culture. During the journey, your guide will introduce you to various topics of interest such as Argentine culture and history. Once we reach the town of Areco, there is a tour around its streets, the Main Square, The Old Bridge and other historical sites and you will also have the chance to see the work of the most outstanding silversmiths in the River Plate area.

The Estancia we will visit, located at just about 500 meters from the town’s historical sites, keeps the traditional charm of the Estancias in The Pampas region. Like all the Estancias in the Buenos Aires outskirts, it has been built among a large number of construction buildings which at one time served as housing and provided the necessary space for the various activities carried out in the fields, work, leisure and thought.

On arrival at the estancia at about 11AM, you will be welcomed with music, "empanadas" (meat stuffed pastries), salami, country-made bread and drinks. Afterwards there is free time to take a guided horseback riding tour or carriage ride around the grounds. Right before lunch we serve an appetizer made up of matambre and other cold cuts. At 1 PM we serve lunch: an Argentinean Barbeque that includes: chorizo, morcilla, asado al asador, vacío al asador, costillar, salads, dessert and coffee. Beverages: soft drinks and mineral water. During lunch there is a folk music and dance show, where the guests can participate singing and dancing. Afterwards, there is an exhibition of horse riders dexterities (ring races -carreras de sortijas- and "cuadreras"), and you can visit the different buildings that make up the Estancia: the Main House (casco), the Ermita, the Pulpería, the Carriage Storage House, the Ranch, the Horse Stable, the Mangrullo or the family Museum. These buildings are of great historic value in the life of men and women of our countryside. In the late afternoon, you will be served a traditional hot drink (mate) with some sweet stuffed pastries (pastelitos).

If you are looking for peace, just stroll through the vast park and around the lagoon crowded with birds or you may simply like to stay in the swimming-pool (open during summer), relaxing and watching this magnificent scenario.
