Discover the charm of the Argentine pampas with a visit to a local estancia (ranch) outside Buenos Aires, where you will be welcomed with ‘empanadas’ (traditional argentine meat pies).

Stroll about the grounds and settle into the slower pace of life, enjoy a traditional `asado´ (BBQ) including world-renowned Argentine beef.

Dining will be ‘family style’ and you might find yourself together with other patrons at the estancia. Live entertainment is provided by gauchos in their typical dress, dancing to their unique folkloric music. Following lunch, the fun moves to an open field where you watch an impressive display of the gauchos’ skills on horseback (not possible in heavy rain).
