Estancias around El Chalten

Eolo; US$ 880 / room / night

If you're looking a place of luxury, and hosts who will pamper you and provide private guides for excursions, Eolo lodge is the place for you.  It is some way out of Chalten, indeed it is closer to Calafate, and focuses these days on exclusive, luxury packages rather than on raising cattle.  From here, however, you can go horse riding (for a small additional cost), as well as trekking and mountain biking, or wildlife spotting amid the great vistas of La Anita Valley and Mount Frias, knowing that  a tasteful and comfortable home is awaiting you at the end.

Estancia Cristina up to US$ 720 / room / night

Accessible only by a 3.5 hour journey by boat, Estancia Cristina is an adventurer's paradise:  home to 4x4 exploration, a choice of horse-back and trekking tours, and (if a permit is pre-ordered) fishing on the Rio Caterina or the Laguna de los Pesca (Spanish for "Lake of the Fish").  A rustic design, Cristina's 5 lodges are simple, but stylish and homely.


Estancia la Estela US$ 170 / room / night

Ideal for adventurous types, la Estela is probably the most estancia-like of the Chalten estancias.  Located in a desert-valley, on the bank of la Leona river, and with views of the mountains of Los Glaciares, the setting is breathtaking.  Warm and welcoming, activities on offer here include horse riding, rafting, archery, mountain biking, fishing and, of course, trekking.

Please enquire for more details.

Estancia La Quinta US$ 170 / room / night

Estancia la Quinta is a lovely place from which to base yourself for hikes into Los Glaciares National Park.  With several warm and bright communal areas with great views of the landscape, this clean and modern estancia is a great place to relax.

Outside you'll see the estancia's horses and cattle and wake up to great views.  Just 3km outside of Chalten, you'll be able to take advantage of free transfers to and from the bus station twice a day.  The rooms are spacious, with ample room for luggage, as well as a tv and wifi.  The accommodation and quality of service here and friendly staff make this a great place to choose for a relaxing stay.
