An Unforgettable September 18: A National Holiday in Patagonia

Although we generally associate the festivities of September 18 with local fairs (fondas), Chile’s traditional dance (cuecas), and barbecues with family and friends, Chile is home to a varied mosaic of cultures and traditions. You can also participate in these traditions in Patagonia, the country’s southern tip. Below, we present several reasons you should consider celebrating Chile’s National Holidays in the presence of the world’s eighth wonder here in Torres del Paine, Patagonia.

Traditional Lamb Barbecue

If we talk about authenticity and tradition, Estancia Cerro Negro must be a part of the conversation. This ranch offers a genuine Patagonian experience as it was lived more than half a century ago. You can enjoy a warm welcome steeped in traditions, which our guests often find one of their favorite experiences. You can taste Chilean salsa or Pebre, empanadas, and warm yourself with a hot wine beverage called Navegado. All this while enjoying exquisite Patagonian lamb roasted on a stick outside for hours beforehand. Additionally, during your visit to Cerro Negro, you will see sheep shearing and an exhibition of how our sheepdogs work on the farm.
