Ranches, Estancias & country Retreats

Saddle up and see the world from a different perspective, on horseback. Stays at ranches, Estancias and Country retreats are an ideal way to enjoy an active adventure holiday and get you deeper into the wilderness on a truly immersive experience. What’s more, because you’ll ride with expert guides a riding holiday works regardless of your ability. They are also perfect for adults and families alike, allowing everyone to get in touch with their inner cowboy.

For a typical western experience the empty spaces of the USA allow you to indulge in horse riding and cattle herding, dude ranching and round-ups, all the while staying in luxury ranches that offer the ultimate in adventure. With lodges like Dunton Hot Springs, the Ranch at Rock Creek and Triple Creek Ranch setting the standard for service and hospitality you’ll be able to relax after a hard day at the rodeo.

Alternatively get in touch with your inner gaucho by enjoying a ranch holiday in Chile or Argentina. Watch out for wildlife while exploring empty tracts of British Columbia in Canada or take to the saddle on a riding safari to see swathes of the savannah in Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa and Botswana on horseback.

You needn't ride though to enjoy a stay at one of these authentic properties. Head to a country retreat, estancia, hacienda, outstation or ranch for the chance to experience a way of life and try your hand at a wide range of activities in the heart of some stunning scenery and wilderness.
