Take a short walk down to Lake Sarmiento to explore our beach area. The water is cold, but on a hot summer day you could have a nice swim. The view is wonderful and the beach is nice and long for leisurely walks. You'll see Calafate bushes and other shrubs endemic to our ecological zone, the Fuergian Steppe. You'll probably also see some ñandues, the local ostrich-like birds and you might see some guanaco grazing. All this, just steps away from the hotel.
The lake is a closed basin elliptical lake with 47 miles (78km) of shoreline and a surface area of 86km2. The lake is edged by the Torres del Paine National Park on one side and the great Pampas on the other where Tierra Patagonia sits.
