Itinerary

Full Day at Estancia La Península

Puerto Natales, Chile

Depart early in the morning to the pier located near the city of Puerto Natales to board the “Reasi”; 45 minutes later, you will arrive to the Estancia where you will have a welcome gathering inside the house. Then, you will head to the stable to get ready for the horse ride, which goes through the Magellanic forest, pampas, and along the shoreline from the Señoret Channel. Then, get ready to try a traditional gaucho meal - an authentic Patagonian roasted lamb barbecue. In the afternoon, after some time to roam around the estancia, you will be treated to a presentation of the farm’s main purpose, sheep shearing, to learn all about this traditional Patagonian work.

Next, you will be transferred to Port Consuelo, the starting point for the settling process in the area, where you will wait for the van to take you back to your hotel.

Weather

The vast unbroken stretch of ocean to the west and south of the South American continent leaves the Patagonian Andes very exposed to winds that circle the Antarctic landmass. In addition, the strong marine influence and the effect of the Southern Patagonia Ice field make the weather hard to predict. In spring or early summer, fine weather may deteriorate almost without warning, bringing rain and even snow. Even in summer (December to March), you should come prepared to find strong cold winds (up to 130km/hr) and rainfall. The summer’s average temperature is 11ºC/52ºF (24ºCmax, 2ºC min). However, just as quickly as the weather turns nasty, it can become lovely and sunny. So come prepared for all types of weather!
