Spend 10 days, 9 nights on horseback riding through Patagonia’s exclusive estancias and nature reserves with Chelsea Yamase
As a passionate equestrian and an avid explorer, I have always sought to combine my love for horses with my adventurous spirit. Two of my favorite trips I have ever done have been immersive camping on horseback.
I’m particularly excited to be co-hosting this trip with Venture Patagonia which gives us private access to two remote and exclusive estancias plus a private regenerative nature reserve bordering the famous Torres Del Paine National Park.
