Heading to Punta Bandera and the Perito Moreno glacier, on provincial route Nº 11 (paved), and 22 km El Calafate is situated “Alice-El Galpon”. It is an ideal place for ecotourism development adapted to the different times of stay of tourists in the area. At the estancia you can enjoy activities such as sheep herding with Kelpie breed dogs, sheep shearing demonstration, horseback riding, hiking and birdwatching in the Birds Lagoon.

On arrival at the estancia, the staff offers chocolate, tea or coffee with cakes, sweets and homemade cakes. Then, the activities begin: sheep herding performed by gauchos on horseback and with Kelpie dogs and trekking to the Birds Lagoon.

After returning from the lagoon, you make a tour to the old shearing shed and participate in a demonstration to learn about this practice and wool processing.
