Suggested route & duration
- Estancia El Ombu: 2 nights.
During your stay choose to involve as much as you please – stock-rearing activities include milking, branding, ear-tagging and driving cattle. Explore at your own pace on foot along the banks of the Areco River or saddle up and join an experienced gaucho as you ride one of the working horses across the land. Those who wish to travel in a more leisurely style can take a horse-drawn carriage ride and bird lovers can keep an eye out for the many bird species of the pampas. The property also features a variety of facilities and activities that can be enjoyed at leisure including a swimming pool, bicycle rides, volleyball, table tennis and football. During your stay be sure not to miss a traditional asado during which you can sample succulent barbecued beef which has raised and prepared on the estancia.
