"Estancia Río Penitente" dates back to the late 19th century, when scottish family of Mr. Alexander Morrison and his wife Mrs. Hellen McCall arrived to the region of Magallanes in 1891. They were one of the many european settlers who migrated to the region with the dream of establishing sheepfarming in the area. 


The ranch has trascended five generations and the original facilities are still preserved, such as the main house and the shearing shed. We incorporated tourism in 1990 as a complement of sheep farming, which has helped to keep the history alive and be able to show the typical activities of one of the first farms of Patagonia.
