Morado National Park: Glacier Ride - The Morado National Park of Chile, accessed from Bano Morales, is famous for its red river and its glacier. Many tourists visit it, but we take a different approach, where you will see almost nobody except possibly a mountaineer. http://horseridingchile.com/blog/rides/morado-national-park

Marmolejo Horseback Ride - This ride involves negotiating rivers which adds a touch of drama even though they are not difficult to cross and the horses, once again, are familiar with the terrain. http://horseridingchile.com/blog/rides/marmolejo-horseback

Fossil Lake Ride: La Rubilla - This is the most challenging ride as although it is not difficult or dangerous, it is a steep climb, not advised if you suffer from vertigo. The horses do not find it hard but they need to rest from time to time as we climb the altitude very rapidly. http://horseridingchile.com/blog/rides/fossil-lake-ride

Family Expeditions on horseback -Taking children on rides into the mountains is a huge pleasure to families, but it is more difficult and with more risk and extra responsibility. For this reason prefer to take children over 7 years of age. http://horseridingchile.com/blog/rides/family-expeditions

One Day Ride near Santiago - The most popular 1 day ride goes out from our parcela in El Toyo, just over an hour’s drive from Santiago.    It winds up through native Chilean trees and follows along the top edge of a river valley, passing cactus and chagual flowers perched on craggy rocks, with pools and waterfalls below. http://horseridingchile.com/blog/rides/one-day-ride

Horseback winter rides: The cordillera around Santiago is in many ways more beautiful in winter than even in summer and winter rides in the frequent sunshine are a real pleasure – not too cold but not unbearably hot either. http://horseridingchile.com/blog/horseback-winter-rides

Valle Engorda: High valley Ride - This is a more gentle day’s riding, with nothing very steep or difficult, although the river is crossed twice on horseback. http://horseridingchile.com/blog/rides/valle-engorda-horse-ride

Refugio Plantal Ride - It starts from the Valle Engorda and goes up steeply through what is known as the funnel (embudado)- a narrow steep gorge- and emerges at a plateau with a ‘vega’ or meadow with cattle and goats and often baby animals of various kinds. Once we actually saw a kid being born. http://horseridingchile.com/blog/rides/refugio-plantal-ride
