Our family did the zip line and it was so much fun! Originally we were scheduled for the 4x4 but the zip line was available and they allowed us to change at the last minute. It was so great and Anna was great with our kids, making them feel comfortable and excited. It was an awesome time! Lunch afterward was... More

We were offered two different horseback riding excursions from our tour company when we arrived and we are sure happy we choose the half day ride at Cerro Frias. The company came to pick us up at the hotel and brought us to the ranch about 15 minutes west of Calafate. The driver was super nice and informed. When we... More

Recently had a group event here. Zip line, horseback riding, 4x4 tour, great meal, wine and service. We all loved it. Great friendly service and staff. I recommend it especially for groups.

I chose the horseback riding excursion for the authentic gaucho experience. Our group was only 3 people which enabled our guide Gabriel to be very attentive and take a lot of photographs us. Horses were well behaved, we rode for about 1 1/2 - 2 hours and enjoyed the mountain views. The Estancia itself was very nice and relaxing. Enjoyed... More

I did the horse riding tour and the next day I booked the ZIP line tour, but the weather wasn't that good at this time (rain) so it was canceled for safety reasons and I die the 4x4 Tour instead with fantastic views from the mountain on the lake Argentino. At the end the weather turned and Tito, the manager... More

We did the 4x4 after doing Big Ice the day before and were looking for something to fill the day. It was possibly our favorite day. The hosts were great and took us to a working farm. They cooked us lunch while we were able to take pictures, relax and zip-line. HIGHLY recommend!

Our first option for a kayaking tour was booked, so we chose horseback riding with Cerro Frias as an alternative half day activity. Overall was a relaxing and beautiful day activity - the ranch from where we started the ride was super cute with some delicious food! The horseback ride itself was pleasant - more scenic than anything as the... More

This is a great option if you have half a day and are looking for an activity to do in El Calafate. We choose the zip-lining and it was really fun as you would expect. And both guides were very nice! Views of the mountains and Lago Argentino are fascinating and it is a very peaceful place to be at.... More
