Claudio, Jorge & Rubén

Gauchos & Guides

We are incredibly lucky to have had Claudio and Jorge Calfulen with us for many years now. They are true gauchos who grew up on a Mapuche Indian reserve in the Malleo river area and formerly worked for the estancia. They are both remarkable horsemen who know the estancia inside out, and make fantastic guides for our guests. Their cousin and fellow gaucho Rubén has also been part of the team for several years, who brings his highly valuable blacksmith skills to the job.
