Would you like to work on a farm or a horse ranch and learn about the rural life in a beautiful setting of Chile?
For anyone who would like to take a break from the busy city life, Chile Inside offers special Farm Stay options among the Working Holiday programs. Our Farm Stay programs are for participants of all ages and professional backgrounds. It doesn’t matter if you have just finished high school, if you are in the middle of your university studies or if you are working full time and need to take a sabbatical. A Farm Stay program in Chile offers you the unique opportunity to explore Chile and get to know the people, to strengthen your Spanish language skills and to pay for your stay abroad by working.
The Farm Stay program lets you live the rural life while learning to take care of animals, cultivating and processing agricultural products as well as carrying out daily tasks on a farm.
The Farm Stay programs primarily take place on horse farms, farms with other animals (husky dogs, goats, sheep, cows, etc.), touristy farms, agricultural plantations, zoos, etc. The program sites are usually located in beautiful areas allowing the participants to explore the scenic nature of Chile. Some of the farms are dedicated to tourism and offer horseback rides lasting from a few hours to several days and accommodations for guests in rustic and cozy guest houses.
When participating in a Farm Stay in Chile, you should be aware that the farms are typically located in remote areas far from large cities or other towns. Others are located near tourist destinations allowing participants access to the infrastructure and activities during free time. If you are ready to renounce your routine, we assure you that an unforgettable experience is waiting for you in the Chilean countryside!
The tasks for Farm Stay participants are diverse and vary depending on the type of each project and farm. Of course, participants can inform us of their preferences concerning the placement and we will use those as guidelines while organizing the program. Possible tasks include:
Tourist Ranches (includes the tasks mentioned above in addition to the following):
