Getting there over the Andes-route
La Serena - Vicuña - Hurtado - Vado Morrillos
Please consider: it’s a narrow gravel road manageable for any kind of car, but keep in mind, you need approx. 100 minutes for the 43km!
La Serena is situated directly on the Pan Americana. Drive in direction of Vicuña.
Don’t drive into the village Vicuna, don’t drive left, drive 200 meters straight ahead and then turn right to Rio Hurtado. After about 100 minutes driving time over a wild romantic gravel road (no four wheel required) through the mountains you reach the village Hurtado.
In Hurtado at the police station you turn right. After a drive of about 5 kilometre’s you will arrive at the bridge, which leads across the river Rio Hurtado. Shortly before the bridge you turn right to the entrance of Corral los Andes.
Drive through the gate which is closed, please close it again, that our horses don’t run away into the Andes. Follow the way and after about 1500 meters you are in front of our gate: Corral los Andes.
