    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    If you like nature, big mountains, landscapes and animales in general this would be the right place for you. we are very into cultural experiences for people from other countries.
    Patagonia is very well known for its vast areas of wilderness and our farm isn't the exception.
    Working with the Gauchos and the horses that are always spread within the 7.000 hectares will make you experience Patagonia at its best.

  • Help


    We are seeking for people who are interested in helping us with the horses that we have in the ranch which are about 45 in total. The main job is gathering the horses in the morning, also helping saddle them up and getting them ready for the horse-rides. Occasionally also taking people out for horse-rides helping the Gauchos with language barriers.
    For those who are applying, it's necessary to have some experience working with horses previously.

  • Accommodation


    The accommodation provided by the ranch is in a 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms house where most of the workers live from the Lodge and the Ranch itself, it‘s a shared bedroom with 2-3 bunk beds, also a shared bathroom. The bedrooms are exclusively male or female only, we don't have any mix bedroom.
    All the meals are also provided by the ranch (breakfast, lunch and dinner), so it's really important that you let us know if you have any restriction for the meals.
    There is not phone service at the ranch but we do have internet access which is very unstable due to the remote location, but there are quite a few nearby areas where you might get phone service, specially when you are out there riding a horse in the mountains.

    On your spare time you will be able to join any of the other excursions that we offer at the Lodge where we usually visit the Torres del Paine National Park. Also if you don't want to go anywhere you can stay at the farm just to keep riding horses for as long as you like.

    We don't take more than one person at the time, meaning that if you are a couple please do not apply.
    People applying for a spot must have lots of experience riding horses in order to be helpful for us.
    The minimun of stay are 2 months, or longer if we find the right person.
    We will interview the volunteers selected, so we can explain better what is that we are looking for and the people applying can show us what their experience is. (we will not take inexperienced people, so please do not insist).
    IF YOU DO NOT MEET THIS REQUIREMENTS, messages will not be replied. (we have too many applicants).
