We had great ride with Valentina. The extra cost was worth it as we had great horses and were allowed to canter and gallop some of the way. Scenery was spectacular and a great Calafate experience.

2 hours for 25 USD. Real good deal. Free pickup from hostel. I had chance to ride horse around the lake Argentina. My horse was very well trained. Free mate and tostada will be served at the end of horseriding,
