Our "Estancia"* lies tucked off the coast of Puerto Natales just 10 nautical miles up Last Hope Fjord. Visitors to the estancia can enjoy meeting local people, exploring the land and learning about the estancia’s holistic approach to ranching while enjoying a stunning backdrop of sea and mountains. Here at our estancia we work to give all of our guests an authentic experience of Patagonian life.
* What is an Estancia? Estancia is the Patagonian word for ranch and derives from the English word “station”.

The Estancia Full Day tour gives you a feel for the essence of Patagonia. It begins with a boat ride through Last Hope Fjord where you will learn about the Last Hope province, it’s history and geography.
1.5 - 2 hours of activities
Upon arrival to the estancia each guest will select a two-hour activity choosing from either trekking, horseback riding or a 4x4 Land Rover drive exploring the property.
Everyone returns to the main estancia house after activities for a traditional Patagonian lamb barbeque known as asado al palo. After more than three hours slow roasting over coals this tasty dish is served with a fine Chilean wine and homemade sauces.
The experience continues with a focus on the Patagonian ranching culture. We begin with one of the most essential tools for a gaucho, his dog. You will learn about the history of our sheep dogs and see a demonstration of how they work. Then a quick walk to the shearing shed will lead us to our final activities, the shearing of a sheep and a tour of the ranches’ facilities.
