Restaurant de Campo Cerro Frias Patagonia

The Estancia Alice, as well as the Cerro Frías, is covered with the typical Patagonian steppe vegetation. Because of the low rainfall, which at the area does not exceed the 300 mm a year and the intense summer winds, trees do not grow on open areas. However, hard gramineous grasses do grow such as the coirón (Festuca Pellescens) which is predominant in the area, some bushes like the calafate (Berberis Buxifolia, Berberis Heterofillis), calafatillo (Berberis Empetrifolia) or the black bush (Berbena Tridens); and some small bushes such as the neneo (Mulinum Spinosum), the purple bush (Senecio Selaginoides Lobulatos) and the Paramela (Adesmia Boronioides), which is one of the only aromatic plants of the area that posses de-congestion properties.

The wild animals that inhabit the area are: the European hare, which is the only exotic species, the guanaco (Lama guanicoe), the choique or small rhea, the armadillo or piche (Zaedyus pichiy), grey foxes (Dusicyon griseus/Pseudalopex griseus), red foxes (Dusicyon culpaes/Pseudalopex culpaeus), the Patagonian skunk (Conepatus humboldtii), ferrets (Galictis Cuja) and small ferrets (Lyncodon patagonicus), wildcats (Felis geoffroyi/Oncifelis geoffroyi) and cougars (Felis concolor) and in the Andean-Patagonian forests, the Huemul can be found (Hippocamelus bisulcus), which is the native deer.
