Activities:

Horse-ride USD70:
Horseback riding is a high risk sport which we try to minimize professionally at El Galope.
For this reason, horseback riding can be suspended due to bad weather, it is guided by an instructor to take care of your physical integrity and the use of helmet - that we provide - is mandatory.

It is a physically demanding activity so it is necessary to be in good physical condition. It is not necessary to have experience or coordinate the rides in advance. Please bring insect repellent, sun-screen and long pants.

It consistes of two parts:
1. Horse-riding lesson where beginners learn to have full control of the horse and experienced riders will get to know the horse and warm up. It takes place in the farm.
2. Horse-riding outside the farm. The guide will evaluate your skills and control of the horse to be able to do this activity. It takes place outside the farm along roads and grass trails.

For those who won't do the second part the fee is USD 35.

Sauna - USD 7 per person

Do yourself a favor and stay at El Galope! We had the best experience. Monica and Miguel are the loveliest hosts. They were so friendly, knowledgeable about the area/Uruguay, & fostered such a comfortable environment. Monica is a great artist and her art lines the walls. The home is beautiful! Everything is decorated so well and feels home-y with green pastures, flowers all around, horses, a great dog & cat! The dinner they cooked was AMAZING, and breakfast was too. We want to go back!
