Estancia Adelaida, Patagonia, ChileGo Back
GLOBETROTTING IN PATAGONIA, CHILE
As a guest you’ll instantly feel at home on this enchanted estancia that stretches over 5000 acres, nestled in the Andean valley, surrounded by dramatic, snow capped mountains. Your hosts are the incredibly warm and accommodating Gorrono family who are passionate about their horses and providing guests with a true Chilean experience.
There are over sixty horses that roam this Patagonian estancia. The children (adults now) used to ride their horses to school and are all accomplished equestrian riders. Each riding day will be an adventure exploring country that can only be accessed on horse. Guests will be able to choose between an array of breeds and will have the opportunity to ride alongside the mountain men that navigate this region, whether its mustering cattle, crossing icy rivers or scaling mountains.
Did I mention this estancia also offered world-class fly-fishing? Perfect for couples where one loves to ride and one loves to fish!

Accepted payment is by credit card only. There is a 2% surcharge on all credit card payments. Since you’ll be paying in a foreign currency, in this case USD, we believe paying via credit card is the most cost effective and easiest option for you.
Why is the price quoted in US dollars?
With our overseas riding destinations (rides other than in Australia), the currency is dictated by our partner in that country. Therefore due to fluctuating exchange rates we have to quote in the same currency.
