The Ranch
At Haras LaViviana we offer lodging in private cabins for each family group. These accommodations have two bedrooms and one bathroom. In the main guest house we also have double rooms with private bathroom. We can accommodate up to 20 people.

Our "ALL INCLUSIVE" includes lodging, activities and four meals, breakfast, lunch, tea and dinner. At midday we offer Argentina's famous "Asado". This is a real treat in itself, and includes beef, pork, lamb, chicken, homemade sausages and veal, accompanied by fresh salads and for desert our homemade "pastelitos", amongst other delicious sweets.

"Day Excursions" are offered to those whose schedule does not permit a longer stay. Upon arrival you shall be made welcome with LaViviana's own special prepared "Clerico", a most unusual refreshing drink.

Shortly thereafter participate in "EL Copetin", another traditional gourmet treat. Lunch also includes the "Asado". Tea in the afternoon, with a variety of homemade breads and jams, is offered as well.

Horse breeding: At Haras La Viviana we are proud of our record in breeding excellent show jumping horses and "dressage" from the best blood lines.

Our horses have been competing in international events accompanied with the Haras professionally trained riders. We also breed Arab horses and "criollos" with which we hold our famous promenades.

Our trail rides are set up in accordance with your level of experience in riding. We provide half day and/or whole day based on your own ability.

Trail rides: For beginners we offer initiation classes that will ease your comfort and apprehension prior to any rides.

For the more experienced riders we offer a greater variety of horses than can be best described as gentle to the not so gentle.

Our best Arabs are for those riders who consider themselves knowledgeable in horse handling and riding.

Lake activities: For those who like to relax in a quiet environment we suggest a canoe outing. Our 1000 hectare private lake is available for your perusal and when the moon is full you we will organize a full moon outing.

Kayaks and/or boats are also available for your enjoyment. With the Kayaks you can go birdwatching, and observe the thousands of waterfowl and other inhabitants in and around our lake. We have some great fishing here, and when a guide requested will assist you. Sailing is another option we offer, as well as windsurfing.

Bird watching: We are proud that Haras La Vivana is an ecological reserve not-withstanding our private 1000 hectare lake, but also an additional 200 hectares of marshland where an enormous variety of local birds and other wildlife nest and live year round in a truly natural setting.

Here majestic white, grey and pink herons can be found, black neck swans share in this protected zone, while others like teros, teros reales, biguas, chajas, chimangos and caranchos as well as numerous species of ducks thrive in this marshland which provides a perfect observation deck for those interested in natures own. Perfect also for the novice or professional photographer.

Swimming Pool

Our premises consist of three chalets for our guest, a couple of double bedrooms with private bathrooms.

The main guest house, "La Rosada", holds the main dinning room, a playroom for the young, and our party-room, "El Destino", with capacity for 100 people, where we celebrate family reunions and Corporate Events.

You can visit our stalls, and all the training facilities for our horses, and participate in the ranch activities.

In our party-room, "El Destino", with capacity for 100 people, we celebrate Corporate Events, family reunions, parties and anniversaries.
On Christmas, Santa Claus comes in a cart, pulled by a horse, or a pony... a treat for the young!!!!!
