El Calafate is the gateway to Southern Patagonia, where the serrated peaks of the Andes Mountains rise above glacial lakes and weather-worn farming outposts.
Take a flight from Bariloche to El Calafate where our driver will be waiting to take you to Eolo. This 4000-hectare farm is surrounded by mountains and grassy meadows and is a perfect resting place to discover some of the highlights of Patagonia.
For a taste of authentic Patagonian life, we recommend a full day visit to Estancia Cristina, located in Los Glaciares National Park, at the Northwest end of Lake Argentino. Secluded within a natural paradise, it was founded by an English family in 1914 and can only be accessed by boat. From quiet afternoon walks discovering the history behind the property to more active trekking and 4WD rides, there is so much to discover and the remoteness and untouched beauty of this farm is breathtaking.
It is also worth visiting the still active Perito Moreno glacier and watching as vast chunks of ice crack and crash into the chilly waters of Lago Argentino below. The glacier is a jagged mass of crevasses and towering columns of ice. Within the national park, there are plenty of beautiful nature trails and the opportunity to put on crampons and trek on icy glaciers.
