Inland the combination of meadows and rolling hills, covered with antarctic beech, provide impressive views and great trails for exploration.

History of the Estancia
Estancia Viamonte was founded in 1902, at the request of the Ona (Shelknam) indians. It was founded by the sons of the first European settler to Tierra del Fuego, Reverend Thomas Bridges. Son Lucas was the author of the book Uttermost Part of the Earth, and along with his brothers Despard and Will they underwent this endeavor. Times were hard for the natives, and the family strove to help them by learning their language and providing shelter from the advancing world. Today the open range is home to sheep, cattle and horses who live alongside native species such as Guanaco, Condors, Caiquens, Ibis and lots of other bird life.
