Embark on a unique adventure at one of GAYOT's Top 10 Ranches Worldwide

The Best Ranches in the World

Along with baseball and apple pie, cowboys are indisputably all-American. But that doesn't mean the U.S. holds a monopoly on riding the open range and campfires under the stars. From gauchos who shout hearty holas in the Pampas to gardians who holler welcoming bonjours in the Camargue, the cowpoke life is without borders. In our search for GAYOT's list of Top 10 Ranches Worldwide, we discovered properties ranging from Montana to Mexico to Mongolia. Depending on which ranch you choose, you might bunk in an adobe bungalow, gallop through a cloud forest, saddle up a hearty Zuleteño horse or embark on a pack trip though the Continental Divide. Phrasebook optional, but cowboy boots required.
