Pacific Horseback Ride on Beach and Sand Dunes with Viña del Mar City Tour
This is a fun day trip on the Pacific Coast that goes beyond sightseeing! We will venture to the town of Mantagua for a 3-hour horseback ride along the beach and nearby Ritoque Sand Dunes, crossing little streams from the Aconcagua River which empty here into the Pacific Ocean after flowing all the way from Mount Aconcagua in the Andes, the highest peak in the Western Hemisphere. After the horseback ride, we drive along the coast to Concón, known for its seaside restaurants and surf shops. We pass by the impressive Concón Sand Dunes where we will have panoramic views of Valparaiso Harbor. The tour continues through the popular beach town of Reñaca where on most days we will spot sea lions lying on the coastal rocks. We then drive to Viña del Mar, Chile’s “Garden City,” where you will see the city’s landmarks, including the Flower Clock and Casino, a “Moai” statue from Easter Island, as well as the city’s pristine beaches.
