Estancias of Torres del Paine

The surrounding area of Torres del Paine national park has several smaller estancias and one larger one, which act as a great base for a day or two of riding.

These places are rustic and authentic; a very different experience from the luxury camps and hotels in the centre of the park. Here's an opportunity to get away from the crowds and get a true sense of Patagonian life and culture.

To include a stay at one of these estancias with a day or more of horse riding please contact us.
