Authentic dances, rodeos and asados
Join us in trying cueca (kway-ka) the national dance of Chile, which got its dances moves based on the loose interpretation of the courting rituals of a rooster and a hen. Its fun to watch or you can grab an handkerchief and give it a try.
Rodeos are a little different in Patagonia if you find yourself in town when they are happening. Its very impressive what the local cowboys can get their horses to do, and together with their dogs they can do almost anything. You will never see a cowboy without his dog and horse, they are essential tools for livelihood in Patagonia.
Chilean asados can’t be missed! We will be sure to serve you up a delicious meal and treat you to an afternoon of open fire cooking, eating and drinking like you’ve never experienced and won’t soon forget.

“Patagonia is a magical place that caters to my love of the outdoors with mountains, lakes, rivers, fish, birds, glaciers, trees, clean air and pure water….just to name a few 🙂 I can already envision myself on the lakeside terrace with a glass of wine at sunset reminiscing on the highlights from the days adventures with our Patagonian staff and our guests.” – David Long
