Accommodation

The nights will be spent in camps that Sayta Cabalgatas organizes in safe places or sometimes in a refuge in the mountains (these are small houses with very basic facilities). You will sleep in shelters or stores that are set up in strategic places.

The ranch

Take a break from traveling and everyday life and relax in a natural environment. This is what many travelers are looking for when they come to the ranch. Other travelers prefer to stay for a few days and go horseback riding for two to three hours each day, thus leaving time to rest, plan future journeys, write their diaries, and practice their Spanish.

Sayta Cabalgatas makes sure that guests feel comfortable, enjoy the food and regional wine, and rest as they need it. The ranch has double and triple rooms with private bathroom. Room cleaning and laundry are included in the services. That is why the ranch is ideal for resting and recomposing energy that causes the stress of the city. All are framed in a natural and familiar environment of personalized attention.

Program

The horses

Sayta Cabalgatas has more than 25 horses with different personalities and features. They were tamed without violence, which is why they are docile and disciplined. Sayta Cabalgatas feeds them with special care of their diet and they look after the horses' health and sanitary control. They are mix-raced, known for being versatile and resistant, therefore the best for safe and comfortable riding.

Chicoana

Sayta Cabalgatas is located in the Chicoana area, 35 kilometers southwest of the capital of the Salta Province and is the access point of the Lerma Valley. Chicoana in the Quechua language means “a little bit of the hidden sky”. It is a town that was inhabited by natives whose tribe was given the same name as the region (Chicoanas, faithful to the Incas). This tribe was characterized by its impeccable organization and its way of life.

It's a village where culture thrives. The people preserve their customs and traditions. They devote their time to agriculture. Some of the most important crops are tobacco, beans, maize, and chili. The village itself has a colonial style and is surrounded by old rambling houses. In town, there are also specialist ironmongers who give the place a unique architectural style.
