Riding Brazil offers farm and ranch stays for equestrian holidays and non-riders vacations alike. Our trail riding guests may either want to stay after a trail ride a few more days with their hosts, others want to spend some time on the Brazilian countryside, enjoying the authentic rural lifestyle, away from the hassle in the big cities.
When staying on our Pantanal ranch the visitors are offered great wildlife observation and outstanding photography opportunities. Guided by the competent and friendly fazenda staff, clients will explore the natural beauty of the Pantanal on horseback, hiking and on jeep tours.
There is also the opportunity to take part on the every day work of the pantaneiro peões, the Pantanal cowboys. Trailing cattle, learning about the secrets of regional horsemanship, or, on the other hand, participating in preparing the delicious food that is produced right there at the fazenda's own facilities, are other experiences that you would not want to miss.
Our ranch in the Pantanal features a 30.000 acres property with some 12.000 of cattle. It belongs to a traditional family who is engaged in cattle breeding for 4 generations.
The cultural aspect of the Pantaneiro people, both land owners of European descent and the peões of Indian-Bolivian ancestry, carry a rich heritage of traditions and culture. Our ranch stays are a very special and profound experience, that touches the visitor also emotionally and reaches much further then the usual Pantanal tours.
