    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    The hospitality of the people in Patagonia is famous, the culture of the country people is working with their hands, animals, fishing or simply fighting with the wind (literally) or why not a mate. But also, learn the Spanish language with a touch of mischief or double meaning. (Chilean language)

    La hospitalidad de la gente en Patagonia es famosa , la cultura de la gente de campo es trabajar con las manos, los animales, la pesca o simplemente luchar con el viento (literalmente) o por que no un mate . Pero también, aprender el idioma el español con un toque de picardía o doble sentido. ( chilean language)

  • Help


    The "Estancia" or ranch needs a lot of work and all the help is welcome, the sheep need to be sheared and always be taking care of them, gardening requires that two or three times a month remove the grass, the kitchen needs its washing of utensils are some of the activities They need attention because they don't also paint gates and rooms. If your skills can help and complement these activities, come and wait for you. If you only want to collaborate, come and wait for you.
    In the family we have some members who know Patagonia very well who can give you some advice on places to visit in Torres del Paine and its surroundings.
    Life in a "ranch" or ranch by cattle history, travelers are always catered with accommodation and food, lincond island gives you that and also enjoy a few days of tranquility and the outdoors.

    La estancia o rancho necesita mucho trabajo y toda la ayuda es bienvenida, las ovejas necesitan ser esquiladas y siempre estarlas cuidando, la jardinería necesita que dos o tres veces por mes sacarles el pasto, la cocina necesita sus lavados de utensilios son algunas de la actividades que necesitan atención porque no también pintar portones y habitaciones. Si tus habilidades pueden ayudar y complementar estas actividades ven y te esperamos. si solo quieres colaborar ven te esperamos.
    En la familia tenemos algunos integrantes que conocen muy bien la Patagonia quienes podrán darte algunos concejos de lugares recorrer en Torres del Paine y alrededores.
