A unique cultural experience and horseback journey. A fantastic way of getting to know the lifestyle of the “gaucho”, his customs and riding prowess across wetlands and rivers by horse.4 days / 3 nights Programme Two crossings from Portal Carambola to Paraje Ñupuy and back.
Concepción del Yaguareté Corá – La Alondra`i Village House. Check in at midday. Concepción is a gorgeous town in Corrientes with history that opens its door as the Western Portal access to Iberá. Day off to tour the town, visit the church, museums, “el Centro de Interpretación de la Reserva del Iberá” and craftsmen.
Early departure by van, after 45 minutes on the way to land, we reach the port Juli Cué, the starting point of the horseback ride. Once saddled and prepared the horses, we start the tour. Crossing estuaries and rivers, some to swim, it will take about 5 hours to reach Ñupuy, a typical correntinian place located in the middle of the estuaries. We will stay in a shelter* located near the stream Duster and we will be served by a local family who will be in charge to arrange typical meals for us. In the afternoon, we will visit the ranch of pirí of another local family (1 hour ride by horse from refuge).
*Deppending on the number of people, we can complement the accomodation with tents.
After breakfast, we will return: 1 hour on horseback and 1.30 hours of navigation through the Carambola which leave us in the port Juli Kué, from where we return by van to La Alondra`i.
