The rolling hills of the Central Sierras and the wide open grasslands are prime hiking and horse riding country.

Cordoba is Argentina’s second biggest city located about an hour’s flight from Buenos Aires inland. Whilst the city itself does not draw many tourists the surrounding countryside and rolling hills of the Central Sierra mountains are a favourite location for horse riding enthusiasts and those wanting to experience life on a traditional estancia. The temperate climate is ideal for outdoor activities and enjoying the huge skies and wide open spaces. There is a good selection of family run estancias which offer a glimpse into Argentine country living.
