Estancia Cristina is tucked away in a pristine, north-westerly corner of Lake Argentino, at Los Glaciares National Park, near the incredible Upsala Glacier.
From El Calafate, it’s a 50km drive to Puerto Bandera, the harbor area where an awaiting boat will depart for the scenic 2:30-hour navigation. Along the way, pass waterfront forests, towering mountains, bobbing icebergs and of course, the iconic Upsala Glacier itself, continuing on to your landing point on the northwestern banks of the Cristina Channel, where Estancia Cristina sits.
Having disembarked at the shores close to Estancia Cristina, an expert guide will welcome visitors and take them on an amazing ride. Expect a delightful mix of mountain views, time spent by the lake and birdwatching opportunities on this gentle horseback ride to Cristina Valley, making for an easy but rewarding excursion. After leaving the Estancia behind, we ride in a northerly direction, heading deeper into nature, cross the Caterina River and pass The
Noria. Make your way on horseback along pathways covered with loose stone and moss, leading you eventually to an elevated lookout point that bestows sweeping views of the valley.
Then, when you are finally ready to head home, go back along the same route towards the starting point, the perfect time to take it all in. Later on, we will visit the Costumbrista Museum,where we can learn all about the history of the Masters family: their lives, adventures and how they became pioneers in Patagonia.
