for this remote location the lodge is surprisingly comfortable, the staff is friendly and helpful, the restaurant ambitioned. The beauty of the sorrounding nature, lake , river, glaciers, mountains, is breathtaking. I went there with friends to fish for king salmon in Katharina River. The fishing is not yet organized in the way we are used to from other lodges... More

I have nothing against looking at ice bergs but the trip over was a bit too much. I think we drove around bergs for about an hour before continuing our journey to the Estancia Cristina Lodge. The views are certainly spectacular. The lodging is simple but adequate for where it is located. The staff is very helpful and the food... More

Seldom does one get to experience such natural beauty so privately... We loved hiking the nearby fields and mountains, to streams and waterfalls clean enough to drink. Breathtaking vistas in every direction, we especially enjoyed the freedom to explore on our own. One highlight I cannot emphasize enough, was the magnificent view of the stars and the heavens from our... More

Estancia Cristina is a real surprise. I stayed there for two nights and went hiking to several great spots with amazing views of the lake and the Upsala Glacier. I also went horseback riding at the Estancia. You will be amazed at how beautiful the rooms are for a place in the middle of nowhere. Each cottage has 4 suites... More

The boat trip to Estancia Cristina is fascinating: You get to see how quickly climate can change from a fairly dry and fair climate in El Calafate, to the west side of the Lago Argentino - through La boca del diablo -where you arrive at the Upsala glacier in Arctic climate. Estancia Cristina is located in the next valley, in... More

simple but luxurious hotel in a most picturesque setting. Food exceptional. Excursions to die for led by knowledgable and accommodating guides. So many options to choose.

Estancia Cristina is a gem located on the northern edge of Lago Argentina. We were part of a group that spent two night on the Estancia, so my experience is different from the 'day trippers'. The Estancia is so beautiful and remote, surrounded by stunning snow-capped peaks. The food was wonderful. The small cabins are cozy, roomy, have wonderful views.... More

Estancia Cristina is a really special place in the world. You really get to feel like you are in the middle of nowhere. It is nice that only a small number of people stay there and the activities offered to the guests (hikes, horseback riding, 4x4 rides) are kept very small too. The staff were like a family and very... More

Rooms and meals are excellent, the staff very kind and pleasant. But this place is all about nature, remoteness, landscape - the view on the glaciers is amazing and the trekk back to the estancia through the canadon de los fossiles breathtaking and unforgettable. I would definitely like to go back and stay longer than just one night.

My wife and I stayed for 3 nights, while expensive it is worth it. I am an avid fly-fisher, so spent most of the time fishing for trout and salmon on the grounds of the estancia (only about a 10 minute drive that you can schedule with the concierge). I was lucky enough to buddy up with a group who... More
