6. NOTE ON THE ITINERARY

Although we will do our best to follow the itinerary explained above, it is subject to change due to weather or other unexpected events beyond our control.

Prior notice of any type of health condition or food restriction

Our intention is not to sell a classic tour, because we don't want to treat you as a tourist or just show you beautiful things. The goal is to teach you a way of life that disappears, which is linked to the life and equestrian culture of Tierra del Fuego. We have years of experience in this but there is always something new, sometimes nature imposes its conditions on us and we have to accept them. It is important that you have flexibility in your travel reservations.

7. IT IS RECOMMENDED TO CARRY

  • First-aid sunblock.
  • Avoid synthetic fibers and prefer cotton or other natural fibers for the first layers.
  • Also the pants, preferably baggy and cotton, since constant attrition with the saddle can damage your skin.
  • Due to the wind, the outer layers of shelter should not be too wide so that they do not move excessively with the wind. The sound makes the horses nervous.
  • Scarf for the neck, hat to protect from the cold and the intense sun, knife or razor, glasses with UV protection, flashlight, camera, sleeping bag.
  • Comfortable shoes and not too wide to fit in the stirrups.

8. CONSIDERATIONS

Chilean patagonia is famous for having unpredictable weather. You can live the 4 seasons of the year in the same day. It is for this reason that it is necessary to be prepared for any event. The climate in winter is dry and cold with temperatures between -10 and 10ºC. The weather conditions are more stable between May and October. It is recommended to consider these factors when choosing the clothes with which you will attend the ride.
