Breakfast is served in our large farmhouse dining room and prepared by Roberto, our experienced and creative chef.
Everyday at Estancia del Zorro is different and guests receive tailor made programs in order to enjoy their stay, from exploring the countryside by walking, cycling or horse riding in the grasslands, meadows, wetlands, river bottoms, canyons, and foothills. The shallow wetland provides outstanding habitat for a variety of bird species, including native geese, torrent ducks, kingfishers, ibis,flamingos and black necked swan. Biirds of prey include the Andean condor and a variety of eagles and hawks. The nearby Dos Lagunas lakes are ideal for canoeing and there is a picnic area and walking trails. The amazing Valley of the Moon is just a bike ride away and is a home to the endangered and magnificent Andean Condor.
Car hire is recommended if you plan to explore the area. The border crossing into Argentina is 5 minutes from the estancia and the scenic day trip traverses the Argentine pampas to the river, passing small lagunas, natural habitats for swans, shorebirds, and pink flamingos. Not to be missed is a day long cruise out of Puerto Chacabuco to visit the San Rafael Glacier which is one of the major outlet glaciers of the Northern Patagonian Ice Field in southern Chile and is the tidewater glacier nearest the equator. Well worth a visit is the Marble Cathedral at Puerto Tranquilo, a natural wonder that could be the world's most beautiful cave network. An azure temple created by nature, the walls of this network of water-filled marble caverns show just how magnificent the precious geography of our planet can be. Visitors to the water-sculpted blue caverns see light reflected off the turquoise waters of South America's second largest freshwater lake, General Carrera in Patagonia, Chile.
