Description

A wonderful personal welcome awaits guests at our restaurant with boasts delicious home made jams, cookies, scones, bread and hot tea or coffee.

The adventure begins at the antique sheep shearing shed where the walking tour will depart. Visitors will trek through paths that lead to the lagoon "Laguna de los Pajaros" and the lake "Lago Argentino."

The expedition to the nature reserve includes birdwatching over 40 migrating species that come to this area in spring and who often nest in the reserve by the lagoon.

The tour continues to the ancient native camping ground where archaeologists from the University of La Plata have been excavating and studying this ancient culture.

Visitors will also witness Kelpie dogs steering the flock from their pastures to the shearing shed. Here you will see how sheep are shorn and how wool is baled.

The tour ends with a delicious Patagonian lamb barbecue, fresh salads and homemade desserts at our cozy restaurant with a magnificent view over "Lago Argentino" and "Cordillera de Los Andes."
