At estancia Alice, visitors may enjoy a wide range of activities, from horseback riding and hiking to Tyrolean crossing and bicycle rides. In our case, we chose the horses.
Mount Frías is situated just 23 kilometers away from El Calafate, on the way to the Perito Moreno Glacier. The good thing about this place is that there is a wide range of activities for visitors to enjoy in the company of specialized guides. They include everything from 4WD excursions around the estancia to horseback rides, hikes or mountain biking. All of them are organized by Cerro Frías adventure travel agency.
We chose to go horseback riding together with another ten people who were quite inexperienced riders. Therefore, the choice of each horse and rider was a special moment for the organizers.
They assigned an animal to each of us while they told us their names, their likes and dislikes. Little by little, as we started riding, the worried looks on our faces turned into joy.
