Horse Riding Challenge in Chile

Chile

Chile is an unusual shape: very long and very thin, just over 4,300km long. The top of the country, the north, is a hot, dry desert called the Atacama, one of the driest places on earth. By complete contrast the bottom of the country, the south, is the southern-most point on mainland planet earth; Cape Froward overlooking the Straits of Magellan claims the title. Just across the strait is Tiera del Fuego shared by Chile and Argentina.

The 42nd parallel (Line of Latitude) runs through Chile and Argentina and marks the boundary of Patagonia. This is an area of stunning beauty: deep fjords, snow-capped peaks and dormant volcanos; an area of truly outstanding natural beauty waiting to be explored on foot, self-drive and best of all, on horseback.
