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

The Estancia Cristina offers an alchemy hard to replicate. The untouched beauty of a valley once carved out by a glacier is the magnificent setting of a sanctuary for travelers who value pristine nature. Food and wine are excellent, the rooms are cozy and the dining room's ambience relaxed but elegant. The staff is outstanding. Besides courteous and knowledgable of... More

Takes a couple hours on a boat to get here. Drive by a glacier and some huge icebergs which is pretty amazing. If you are staying at the ranch, then they treat you a little extra special. We did the horseback riding the first afternoon and it was wonderful and scenic. If you are a fly fisherman, bring your gear... More

My wife and I spent 3 days at Cristina last week. Spectacular setting. Knowledgable and caring staff. Expert guides. Just A +. Went riding the first afternoon and the gaucho who has been there for 10 years was wonderful. Able to deal with all skill levels. The 3 hour route was amazing. The day trip hikes the next day "...

Estancia Cristina has the potential to be wonderful place; but although it as high season (Dec), it was populated by Engish-speaking tourists so we felt we were walking right back into the culture we had hoped to avoid. We stayed for two days and the food was repetitive and not very imaginative. Best, was the Patagonia landscape and sky. In... More

Wow, this has to be one of the best places we have ever stayed on holiday! From the first moment crossing the lake to reach the estancia the staff here treat guests brilliantly. They are incredibly knowledgable and attentive and really made us feel very welcome. The estancia and surrounding scenery were spectacular, and there are lots of hikes and... More

There is no driving to this Estancia. It is at the far end of Lake Argentina; it is wild, remote and absolutely one of the most enchantingly peaceful spots on earth. The bus & then the boat trip out of El Calafate take 6 hours, but the adventure lies in the boat travel through the stunning, massive blue icebergs that... More

Service and kindness are " au rendez-vous" . Rooms are the best you can dream in such environment. Trust the team for the best trek you may find and the best time to do it! The horses are lovely and wonderfull. Ride is fantastic with them in such space.
