DAY 1: Arriving to Rocha department, initiating the adventure

We meet at 9am at our meeting point at Barra de Valizas.
We beguine riding along the beach to reach the next coast village, Aguas Dulces. Riding through the countryside and the characteristic palm groves of Rocha de Palmera Butia (badge of this department), we reach our lunch place. A homemade lunch next to our horses awaits us in the heart of this palm tree forest, under the shade of a construction made of 100% butia palm trees!
After lunch we ride our horses until we reach El Mirador, a private natural reserve in middle of Cerro de los Rocha from where you can contemplate a beautiful view of Castillos’ and Black coastal lagoons, immersed in the Natural Reserve of Biosphere East Wetlands by UNESCO.
In the evening, a camp fire and millions of stars is the best spectacle you will never forget. And like if this is not enough we camp there just next to our horses! (Camping equipment included), dinner and breakfast.
(6 hours of riding: 4am and 2 pm)

DAY 2: Highlands sunrise and an adventurous way back home!

Full day ride back to Valizas, picnic lunch.
After a well-deserved rest, the early risers will be able to ascend to the top of the hill to see the imposing sunrise, an image that you will not forget!
We ride through different ‘gauchos roads’ and through cattle fields always with different views of the palm groves. On the road, we look for the best place to picnic and refresh our horses. After noon we go down to the oceanic coast to make a great gallop until we reach back to Valizas.
