Why we like this estancia

  • At over 100 years old, it takes you back in time as you imagine how gaucho life was in this remote part of the world before Torres del Paine was on the traveller's map
  • You get the chance to have a more traditional experience by staying in houses that were formerly those of the estancia workers and witnessing gaucho skills such as sheep shearing and horseback riding
  • It's an extremely comfortable place to stay while visiting Torres del Paine and the surrounding areas, with easy access to the eastern side of the park
  • The food is superb with three-course meals using organic produce from the estancia's allotments, delicious lamb cooked in the traditional style 'al palo', and some of the finest of Chile's wines being served
  • Pick from a wide range of excursions that allow you to explore in the park, or in some of the lesser-visited places like the Baguales mountain range on the Argentinian border

You get a real sense here of the gaucho culture and traditional Patagonian life, all while staying in very comfortable lodgings just a short distance from the park boundary.

Things to do

Excursions offered at the estancia include horseback riding, trekking, a conservation safari, wildlife and heritage tours and an estancia day. These are offered in groups with other guests, except for the private full-day Paine tour. Excursions are organised by our team of guides and are subject to change based on weather conditions.

Horseback riding

Follow the lead of the gauchos by crossing the pampas on horseback to get awe-inspiring views of the Paine Massif, Sierra Baguales and Las Chinas Valley. Start at the estancia stables and work out the best route with your guide according to your experience and preferences.

For anyone interested in horse riding, this is not to be missed. 

Estancia Cerro Guido

Trekking

Follow popular trails in the park to get views of the iconic granite towers, the layered rock of the cuernos and the glistening icy facades of Grey Glacier. Alternatively, explore routes east of the park within a short distance from Cerro Guido.

The estancia will be able to advise you on these self-guided hikes. The trailheads aren't far away, although you will need your own vehicle unless you are visiting as part of a group tour.

Conservation Safari

Whether you wish to hike, bike or horseback, join a guide and explore the rich biodiversity of the estancia itself. You can spot all kinds of birds, guanacos, foxes, skunks, and, if you're lucky, pumas and huemul deer.

Your guide will also be pointing out the local plant and tree species along the way.

Stay at Estancia Cerro Guido to get off the beaten track. You will need to come either with your own transport or as part of a group tour as they don't offer an all-inclusive programme or transport to and from the estancia. It's more than worth it for the jaw-dropping scenery and remote setting.

About Estancia Cerro Guido

Setting

Covering an area of 101,000 hectares, Cerro Guido borders the eastern side of Torres del Paine National Park and is the largest estancia in the area. From the restored farmhouses you can gaze at the iconic towers of Paine and enjoy the vast Patagonian landscapes. It's a great spot for nature and wildlife-lovers thanks to a wide variety of flora and fauna in the area.

Estancia Cerro Guido

History

Settlers from Tierra del Fuego came to the area over 100 years ago looking for land on which they could expand their network of cattle ranches. These self-sufficient estancias bore the gaucho lifestyle which in turn became embedded in Patagonian culture. This is how Estancia Cerro Guido came to be and more than a century later, its traditional farmhouses have been restored to their former glory and transformed into a delightful, cosy place to stay.

Estancia Cerro Guido

Rooms

There are 12 bright and spacious superior rooms with tradition furnishings and wooden floors that can be either doubles or twins. A bed can be added in three of the rooms to make triples. All rooms are well-heated, have large comfy beds, cosy duvets and pillows and their own private bathroom.

You'll get wonderful views of the dramatic Paine Massif, or over the rolling pampas.
