Enjoy Patagonian hospitality and an exciting day of country living at one of the most important local estancias. A scenic drive crossing the endless pampa (treeless grassland) brings you to this 100 year-old cattle ranch. It was established by sheep farmers in the middle of the vast Patagonian pampas and today, the estancia has opened its doors to a limited amount of visitors to demonstrate the art of living of these staunch farmers.


Upon arrival, you will be welcomed by the hospitable, expert sheep farmers who have made this region famous, they will show you the different activities of the farm. You’ll be amazed seeing machinery used by the first colonists of the area still in use, in addition to the well trained dogs. You’ll be taken into the barn for a demonstration of sheep shearing.


Try the traditional welcome drink, a Pisco Sour, as well as baked empanadas. Enjoy a barbecue of tasty Patagonian lamb, which has been grilled slowly for hours, accompanied by vegetables and salad. After lunch you’ll have free time to enjoy the farm and getting to know more about the life of the inhabitants of the Patagonian pampas.
