    Perito Moreno Glacier
    Stop: 6 hours - Admission included
    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.

I stayed at the Estancia for 3 days and 2 nights. I must say, you get what you pay for. Everything was perfect ! My bedroom was absolutely beautiful, big, and comfortable with a view of the mountains.
The food was delicious, whether it’s the buffet or off the menu. I did the three days horse riding and my guide took me to different places each day. Being inside a national park you can only imagine how extraordinary the views are. I felt safe. It’s a peaceful place.
Highly recommend if you can afford it.

We did some riding in the past. When we arrived we had a short riding tour with Leandro. Very nice, good horses and great guide. We liked It so much that we decided to plan another tour. That one was about 6 hours and we had a great, great time. We climbed the mountains with the horses, go through rivers, had a break at a lake. We felt like we were alone on the planet, so serene so beautifull. I do have to say we had good weather, a little breeze but fine. Leandro is very good with the horses, and can see your experience with the horses very quick. We would do it again any time.

Dear WimvL99 Many thanks for your comments! I assume you stay lodge at Estancia (just because you places the review in the Full Day Tour user), what is fabulous!!!! I couldn't agree more about the long ride, you definitely are alone and in peace! Kind regards Estancia Cristina team
