The vast and fertile plains of the pampas that stretch south-west from Buenos Aires are Argentina’s agricultural heartland and home to the legendary gauchos or local cowboys, expert horsemen of the region. The traditional estancias found here form an integral part of Argentina’s history and culture. Ranging from working cattle ranches to elegant country estates, these properties offer a first-hand insight into the life and rural traditions of the gauchos. Day trips to an estancia can be arranged, while longer stays offer the opportunity to experience warm Argentinian hospitality and to relax into the peaceful pace of country life in these beautiful surroundings.

Explore nearby towns, listen to traditional folk music and take leisurely walks while birdwatching. Enjoy breathtaking landscapes and spectacular sunsets on horseback, perhaps helping local gauchos drive cattle or sheep, or simply trek through the vast, open plains. Some estancias offer guests the chance to try their hand at a polo game, take a tailor-made lesson or just sit back and watch this popular Argentinian sport.
