Moonshine Ride


  • Our Moonshine ride is a special gem in our Rari tour collection. You will pass through beautiful native flora in the golden evening light before reaching a viewpoint with a 180 degrees panoramic view for sunset. After having a little snack over the campfire we get back in the saddle and find our way home with just the moon illuminating our path. It’s truly a magic experience as sounds and smells are so much more intense at night. You can trust our horses to find their way home sure-footed as they can see way better than us in dim light. This is not a beginner ride though and you should at least have some previous experience in handling a horse.

    Our sturdy Criollo horses are very well behaved and secure in the mountains. Nevertheless we highly recommend to get a personal travel insurance that covers horse riding as activity.
