On this cultural, accessible day trip, you will get the chance to discover the traditional Patagonian way of life.

This private day trip begins with a pick-up service from your accommodation in Puerto Guadal and a 90-minute drive to the San Martin ranch. The van is not wheelchair-accessible but assistance will be provided to help you transfer, if necessary. Your wheelchair can be stored safely in the van for the drive.

You will then arrive at the San Martin ranch, a family-owned farm that stretches over 2,000 hectares (4942 acres). The family follow the traditional gaucho way of life and rear sheep, cows, horses and chickens on their land. A joelette wheelchair will be provided so that you can explore the terrain accompanied by the gauchos, skilled horsemen who will tell you about how they take care of their animals. Depending on the time of year, you may also get the chance to follow the women of the ranch as they gather seasonal produce such as wild strawberries or delicious morel mushrooms.

Once you have explored the ranch, you will share a drink of mate, a herbal infusion traditionally served in a round gourd, and learn some of the family’s stories and history. Then you can enjoy a typical meal of the region, asado al palo, a Patagonian barbecue of a whole lamb cooked on a fire, accompanied by rich red wine.

At the end of the day, you will be driven back to your accommodation.
