Staying at Estancia Cristina is a once in a lifetime experience. The rooms are really luxurious, and atmospheric, the staff make you feel like royalty and the valley itself is a spectacular. They also do day trips but stay the night....it's really worth it. The journey itself is exciting, a james bond-esque boat trip through the glaciers and icebergs until... More

Everything about Estancia Cristina is first class, from the transfer to/from the lodge from El Calafate to the food, accommodation and activities. Staff are friendly and helpful. Compared to the lodges in Torres del Paine it's also very good value for money. Two nights were sufficient for us but if you're into horse riding you may be able to fill... More

Estancia Cristina is a first class way to experience the beauty of Patagonia. Their accommodations are private, comfortable and tasteful with beautiful views. The staff are extremely welcoming and willing to make your stay as special as they can. We were awed by the glacial canyons and grasslands and took advantage of the differing ways to experience it (breath-taking day... More

We loved every minute of our stay at the Estancia Cristina Lodge. We stayed for three days. We had an exciting hike with Santiago (our young enthusiastic knowledgeable guide). We also had an unforgettable horseback ride, crossing a river and up a mountain path looking at spectacular views. The people, the food, everything was fabulous. We loved the young foal... More

The lure of the glacier enticed us to take the boat trip across Lake Argentina to this historic sheep farm turned guest ranch. It is possible to visit for just one day. Consider spending a little to get a lot and stay the night. The food, the service and the guides were hospitable, well informed and considerate to each of... More

We stayed 2 nights in late February 2014. Weather was clear and sunny and made the experience exceptional. Hiking staff were enthusiastic and knowledgeable (thanks Santiago) making the time fly by and the muscle burn fade from notice. Rooms were large, comfortable, everything worked, views out the windows were spectacular. All staff we dealt with were helpful and responsive. Food... More

We felt since the very beginning this staying was about to have something magic... the long approach by boat, the old fashion styled lodges, the meals, the environment, the lonelyness, the warmness of the hosts. if you are spending some time in El calafate area you cannot miss this experience!

We stayed two nights and that gives you time to sink in to the quiet, the beauty, the people. If you don't have the luxury of two nights, it's still great to do a day trip or one night but two really slows you down, in a good way. Enough but not too much activities, food is plentiful and good... More

Estancia Christina had the perfect combination of comfortable accommodations, picturesque vistas and activities planned according to the interests and abilities of its guests. The dinning room was absolutely accommodating especially with packed lunches for all day hikes. The BBQ of lamb, beef and sausage was fantastic, and the diners in the dinning room were delicious. Because the Estancia was accessible... More
