There is a strong tradition of horse riding in Uruguay. The country is famous for its colourful gaucho horsemen and cowhands found on the Uruguayan pampas. Viejo Fox is situated in the Arenas de José Ignacio, a natural peaceful area surrounded by pine woods, lakes and rolling countryside. The area is perfect for riding. The open countryside, ocean views and deserted beaches make horse riding in the Arenas de José Ignacio a unique and unforgettable experience. Horse riding can be booked at Haras Godiva, a five minute drive from Viejo Fox. They offer days riding for all abilities. If you enjoy Polo just a couple of miles from José Ignacio is the Punta Del Este Polo and Country Club.
Cycling is becoming increasingly popular along the Punte Del Este coast. Most of the year the ocean roads are empty and perfect for road bikes. Around the Arenas de José Ignacio area the red gravel roads and foot paths that wind through the countryside are perfect for mountain biking.
