The Andes Mountains and its stunning foothills make for some unique natural viewpoints that feature the best panoramic sights of the El Plata Mountain Range, Potrerillos Dam and the entire Potrerillos Valley which is around an hour from the city. The rugged mountain terrain and vast sweeping landscapes are the perfect setting for horse-riding excursions beyond the wide valleys of vineyards closer to Mendoza. Get out into the wild mountain country for an exhilarating excursion. Enjoy not only the stunning scenery as you trot or gallop along the pretty mountain trails but also look out for native wild animals such as guanacos, condors, foxes and hares. Your ride duration and route can be tailored to fit your ability from beginner to advanced.
