Marie-Lisa and her friend returned in early January from a 4 day Camping and Horse Riding trip in Torres del Paine. Here they tell us about their experiences on the trip…
The trip was awesome- we had a really great time!
How was your guide and horsemen on the trip?
Os was great- really helpful, very enthusiastic, and obviously a great rider.
All of the horsemen were very patient with us and helpful with any questions and help we needed. Alberto in particular was chatty and danced like a dream.
How would you rate the horses you had on your trip?
Amazing- they were really responsive (although each with their own personalities) and were well looked after.
How would you rate the tack?
The tack was all in good order, and was comfortable, although as it was changed most days it took a bit of getting used to.
How would you rate the accommodation during your trip?
The tents were great (although complicated to put up), and the choice of wild camping locations was great –all were really beautiful.
Having hot stoves at some of the camps was brilliant, and we really appreciated that we stayed at Gonzales’ family home.
How did you find the food on the trip?
The food was brilliant- plentiful and tasty, we were a bit spoiled to be honest! Livio was charming, funny, and a cheerful spirit on a rainy morning.
How would you rate the transport and logistics on your trip?
There were no problems at all with transport- it was comfortable, spacious and on time. The logistics ran very smoothly, and were accommodating of different arrival times.
Do you have any other comments or suggestions about the trip?
We had an amazing four days, and although it was tough going at times, it was extremely worth it. The pace of the group worked well, Gonzalo and Alberto were patient when some needed to slow down, but kept the pace of the group going. We had such a laugh and would recommend the trip to anyone. Thank you! Sorry, we can’t suggest any improvements!
