Estancia Cristina / Luxury

One of El Calafate's most luxuriously isolated properties is Estancia Cristina, a former ranching outpost once operated by a pioneering Englishman. To get here, guests take a stunning 4-hour boat ride past icebergs and the famous Upsala Glacier and upon arrival can explore the Patagonian plains and their sparkling glaciers further through trekking or riding excursions. With only 20 rooms distributed throughout rustic-style lodges with skillfully incorporated modern facilities, guests intimately experience the sweeping expanse of the Patagonian frontier.
