Biking the Countryside
Enjoy a ride to the town of Jose Ignacio and rural trails that lead to Laguna Garzon and the circular bridge. We will tour the town, the lighthouse and main square to continue on Route 10 towards “La Lengüeta” of Laguna Garzon. We continue on internal roads of local ranches across the Uruguayan campo. We will return along picturesque trails that only locals know.
Exploring Guaverde Vineyards on Horseback
Enjoy a horseback riding tour overlooking the rocky landscape of the Maldonado stream. The horse is an integral part of nature, and its passage does not disturb the environment around us, so there is a big chance of seeing a great variety of birds, armadillos, foxes and hares that live in the area. You will ride to Aguaverde vineyards where we will cross the forest and vineyards to learn about the history of this amazing place.
The native cultures of our country used canoes as a primary means of transport. These were the Guarani tribes who, upon navigating the rivers, streams and lagoons, discovered all the geographical features of Uruguay. The Guarani tribes left the country a legacy of native names like Aiguá (springs), Batoví (bosom), Cebollatí, Cuareim and, of course, Uruguay, which is also a Guarani name meaning “river of the painted birds.” As Uruguayans, whether of native or European descent, we carry the native spirit of these lands within us, thus it’s no surprise that so many people love to go canoeing, whether for exploration or recreation. Discover the natural lagoons of Maldonado and appreciate the great variety of birds that live in the surroundings.
