TOUCH: SHEEP SHEARING AT A PATAGONIAN ESTANCIA
Travelers on our The Wilderness Beyond
adventure will get to spend time at a Patagonian estancia in Chile—one of the many sheep ranches that dot the expansive landscape. It’s a chance to get a glimpse of traditional life on the pampas, where ubiquitous sheep roam the ranch and gauchos tend to their flocks and demonstrate the skill necessary for herding and shearing. You might even get to help out with one of the annual woolly haircuts—a hands-on experience that qualifies as a shear
delight. Afterwards, you’ll have an opportunity to dig in to some asado de cordero
—a tasty lamb barbecue.
