They are the authentic Andean cowboys. Born and raised in the higlands, they hold a distinctive culture deeply related with the horses and cattle, with the landscape and the traditions. Mostly peasants, the Chagras are very appreciated and have become a model to the younger generations. All our rides are led by chagras that will show the riders the skills and will share their knowledge.


We provide certified English and Spanish speaking guides. We also work with native guides from the area where we operate.

Our guides are experienced riders, climbers, bird watchers, anthropologists, and mountain bikers who have excellent knowledge of the local fauna & flora, culture and traditions. All our guides are trained to maintain the highest safety standards. We can provide WFR (Wilderness First Responders) guides with international certificates and Red Cross first aid certified guides.
