For horse riding tours you don't need experience. Several tourists have done a three day trip without ever riding before. They loved it! We go slowly up and down the mountains to enjoy the landscapes.

For horse riding tours I charge 100 euros for one day trips and 150 euros for several days, including transport, horses, food and drinks.

Accommodation in my house is possible, though you need to accept my dog Lahui and cat Pichihuel. The rate is 40 euros per day, including breakfast.

Is Bariloche a destination by itself?
One could choose to come to Bariloche for a long period of time, though taking the place as a center point to travel to Chile or the south is recommended. Around Bariloche there is a lot to see, a good week is advisable.

How far is Chile?
There are boat trips to Chile (Puerto Montt), which take from 8 to 20 hrs, crossing the Andes by boat and parts by bus. Bus connections are several times per day to Puerto Montt and take 7 hours.

Is Argentina dangerous?
Argentina is a country with an economical crisis at the moment. People need money, so you need to be careful, especially in the big cities.
When you travel in the countryside of Patagonia, you don't have this problem. Sometimes you only meet up with one or two cars per day.

Are there saunas and massage places in Bariloche?
Yes, Bariloche is a spiritually developed city. You can have massages, yoga classes, meditations, "temascal" sauna (traditional aboriginal type of sauna) etc. Even spiritual horsetrips with meditation and purifications are an option.
