Excursions
A wonderful personal welcome awaits guests at the hotel restaurant with delicious homemade jams, cookies, scones and bread and hot tea or coffee. The adventure starts at the antique sheep shearing shed where a walking tour takes you through trekking paths, leading to the lagoon "Laguna de los P�jaros" and the lake "Lago Argentino". The expedition to the nature reserve includes birdwatching of over 40 migrating species which visit us from the beginning of Spring, and which often nest in the reserve by the lagoon. The tour continues to the ancient Indian camping ground where archeologists from the University of La Plata have been excavating and studying their culture.

It is hard to imagine this trip without watching the Kelpie dogs mustering the flock from their pastures to the shearing shed. There you will see how sheep are shorn and how wool is baled. The tour ends with a delicious patagonic lamb barbecue, fresh salads and homemade desserts at our cozy restaurant with a magnificent view over the "Lago Argentino" and the "Cordillera de Los Andes".

Birdwatching is especially spectacular throughout the grounds, and you may also ask to arrange a mountain bike ride, horseback ride, or a trip in a carriage. All of these activities are included with a 3-day or longer stay.

Our guide and driver were very good with their knowledge and were very helpful with our questions. It was a very pleasant visit that would have been impossible to do on our own. Hotels and restaurants were fantastic. The special places we got to go to, like the kitchens, were great. Enjoyed the entire trip!
