The Pampas

The Pampas are seemingly endless plains where Argentinian macho gauchos (cowboys) wrestle cattle, ride with purpose, feast on sleep on succulent barbequed beef and traditional life prevails for many.
Visit the Pampas for an authentic experience of cowboy traditional life for a glimpse into rural Argentina. Time spent in with the locals always included vast amounts of food, wine and a little music.

What to expect from The Pampas

If you would like to eat spectacular beef, soak up a dose of peace and serenity and experience a whallop of macho Argentinian life, then look no further than The Pampas. There are a number of estancias that have diversified their livlihoods by opening up hotels in the region. The hotels are of a very high quality and much of what they represent and stand for is traditional Argetinian combined with luxury offerings for the international traveller.

Where to stay

There are some superb estancias (ranches) remotely located on the grasslands that give you an insight into traditional cowboy life here. There are opportunities for you to try your hand at horseriding, lassoing and shaving a sheep. On the other end of the scale, if you opt for one of the plusher options they also have spa facilities to relax in after a day out on the plains.

Top tips

Including a stay in The Pampas at the start of a trip is a good introduction to Argentinian life and a relaxing way to recover from a long international flight. Alternatively, add it on to the end of your trip for a few relaxing and quieter days before flying out.
