When Do You Want To Go?

A Fascinating Estancia steeped in History Situated in its own 1000 Hectare Estate

El Bordo de las Lanzas is a jewel of colonial architecture and an authentic experience of traditional cultures. One of the country’s most historic estancias, its colonial roots date from 1609, when Salta’s patriot, General Martin Miguel de Guemes led his Gaucho cavalry to victory over the Spaniards during the War of Independence. The property is still in his descendant’s care. A pioneer in rural tourism, this typical Salta country estate opened its doors to guests 20 years ago.

The owners of this authentic working estancia, the Arias family, personally welcome visitors. The main house is mainly built of adobe brick and hardwoods from the property’s own forests, with sturdy ironwork, colonial doors, tiled roofs, verandas and patios. Guestrooms keep their original charm with outstanding colonial furniture, but are well adapted to provide guests with updated comforts.

At “El Bordo” guests are invited to participate in a wide variety of activities. Some may want to ride a Peruvian Paso horse over the estate's 1000 hectares of organic plantations, such as sugarcane, peanuts and sunflower seeds, amongst others. Additional activities include visiting the 2000 hectares of nature reserve and virgin forest, the home of native species and a great variety of birds. A yacare caiman reserve can be visited and bikes are available to ride around the property.

  • Fantastic restored building dating from 1609
  • Great food, much of it sourced from the Estancias own estate
  • Highly personal service from the family and their staff
  • Great horse riding around the Estate with the Estancias own Gaucho
  • A unique and memorable experience
In Our Opinion

"There are few experiences in Argentina that come any more authentic than staying at El Bordo. If you can appreciate the rustic nature that comes with the age of the building, you will absolutely love the experience on offer here"
