Why We Like This Estancia

This isolated lodge offers guests a chance to immerse themselves in the mountainous landscape of Los Glaciares National Park. The lodge's wooden interior is rustic and comfortable. It is possible to get close to Upsula Glacier from here as well. 

  • There are a number of scenic walks, horse rides and boat trips to enjoy from the cosy lodge.
  • The mighty Upsala Glacier, one of the most important glaciers located within Los Glaciares National Park, is located nearby. 
  • This estancia is run with the same effort and perseverance as its founding family from 1914. They raise 12,000 sheep, 30 cows, and some 50 horses.
