Estancia Tercera Barranca
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 6, 2014

Victor was very kind and the estancia is a unique kind of place. Only negatives are the great distance to Torres del Paine--an almost self sufficient ranch.
The Estancia milks it's cows for milk in the morning, runs on wind power, has a wood burning stove to cook and bake.

This was a return trip to Tercera Barranca, and I would stay there yet again. It is a bit off the beaten path, and can be somewhat difficult to locate. The drive is long and over an exceptionally bumpy road. Nonetheless, it is definitely worth the trouble. Rooms are very comfortable and modern; the lounge/great room has terrific views, with a massive fireplace that adds to the atmosphere. The estancia has its own garden for some fresh food items, and morning eggs come from their own source. On our first night, the steak was a bit tough, but salmon the next night was outstanding. The staff (Francesca, Nancy and Victor) treated us superbly.

The estancia is located outside the Park and has wonderful views of the Towers; however, the drive to actually enter the Park is circuitous and long.

If you are looking for an authentic ranch experience in Torres del Paine, this is the place. The rooms are large and clean, the beds and soft with great conforters, the bathrooms modern. The horsebackriding experience is amazing, you go off the beaten path, see wildlife. Victor is very nice and speaks great english. The food is fresh and delicious. Doña Carmen got out of her way to accomodate my children. The house is small, with only a few rooms, so you get a feel of being home. The views are beautiful!

Estancia Tercera Barranca is located adjacent to Torres del Paine National Park. Our bedroom was large and had a nice modern bathroom. The furnishings were simple, but the bed was very comfortable. The house has a large great room with a large fireplace and stunning views of the mountains. The meals are served in a separate dining house about 100 feet from the main house. All of the cooking is done on a wood burning stove. Both breakfast and dinner are substantial, with fresh baked bread. It is a working farm with horses, cattle and sheep, and the cats and working dogs necessary for such an operation. It is fun to watch the action. We were also able to spot some condors flying over the low hills close to the dining area. Although the Estancia is located adjacent to Torres del Paine, it still takes about an hour to drive from the Estancia to the park entrance. The 13 Km drive from the entrance gate to the house is on a fairly rough gravel road, so it is not possible to drive very fast on this segment. Vincent, the manager, speaks good English Everyone else speaks only Spanish, but nevertheless are very warm and friendly.

Tercera Barranca is a place we will never forget! It's takes a bit of a drive to get there - which is part of the amazing experience... Each turn revealed another gorgeous vista and by the time we arrived at the Estancia we were in awe! The view of Torres Del Paine as we arrived literally bought tears to my eyes! We were only staying for one night but decided to extend our stay to two nights.

Victor warmly greeted us and made us feel at home. The rooms are clean and very comfortable with huge windows and views!

The food here is so delicious... authentic Chilean and cooked to perfection. I have been craving the slow cooked lamb and potatoes for over two weeks now since we left.

We went horseriding on the property which was very easy to organise. Once again we saw more incredible views, took lots of amazing photos and saw heaps of animals on the property including, guanacos, rheas, skunks, hares, a grey fox and condors! Not bad for a half day of horse riding!

The service is excellent - everyone is friendly and welcoming - we had lots of nice conversations with the staff and got to know everyone by the time we left. I really miss this place. Both of us agree this is an incredible place to experience and we will never forget our stay.

The location is closer to Torres Del Paine than Puerto Natales and was a great place to launch our hike of the W.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a great view with big windows, but ask for a room with a view of Torres Del Paine...

This estancia is off to the side of the park, but well worth the traveling for a true ranch experience. Very comfortable, great food, lovely kitchen, great people, views views views, what more can you ask for? They offer activities however we had our own agenda and did do any. Loved the place!

Last October, we had a fabulous trip to Patagonia, Chile. After spending a few days in the Torres del Paine park, we headed over to the Tercera Barranca ranch. Driving up in the early evening, we enjoyed a glorious sunset. The owner met us as we drove up and welcomed us to the guesthouse which we had to ourselves. He built a wonderful raging fire (which they kept going the entire two days we were there) in the living room. He has a really wonderful property, very comfortable with fantastic views. The dining room is a separate building and the cook is Carmen - who speaks only Spanish and is a joy. She made us three very good meals a day - everything from scratch and most of it produced on the ranch.

One day we decided to take a horseback ride throughout the ranch which took about 4 hours and was very enjoyable. We saw all types of birds at the ranch, emu, jack rabbits, etc.

Really a wonderful, relaxing time. Make sure you take cash to close out your bill as he cannot take credit cards - I am assuming there is no internet here. Oh yes, and the generator goes off at midnight so no late nights here if that is your cup of tee.
