El Bordo de las Lanzas Ranch, Argentina

A relaxing and homely estancia that is still working, get truly involved in Argentinian life at El Bordo de las Lanzas in Salta.

The warmth of the welcome, the traditional style of the Estancia El Bordo and the natural beauty of the setting. These things haven’t changed since El Bordo de las Lanzas was first established, way back in 1609. So if you want to truly relax, and immerse yourself in the authentic estancia lifestyle of a Northern Argentine country mansion, you couldn’t do better than to stay here.

A lot has happened in the last four centuries; the Jesuits have been expelled, the sugar cane industry has been established, and somewhere along the way – about 200 years ago - the main house was built. Today, you can experience life on an authentic working estate. You can explore astonishing landscapes on horseback, take a master class in regional cooking, learn to dance like a local…
