Overview
More
TLocated on the Northwest shore of the Argentine Lake on the far of Cristiana’s arm, Estancia Cristina is located in a unique corner in Los Glaciares National Park. Founded in 1941 by Joseph P. Masters and his wife, this stunning place still maintains its essence, keeping the history of this family alive, that with great effort and perseverance, made this lonely and inhospitable place a small paradise a home. This full day program grants alternatives to those who prefer a quiet afternoon of walk and history as well as those who are into adventure with trekking and 4x4 wheel drive rides.

What an amazing place! Everything is perfect from the moment we entered the boat, to the moment we arrived at the Estancia, visited the glacier and had lunch it was a perfect visit.

Very interesting view of savage way of living not many years ago in a very harsh enironmental. Landscape very nice but whether was very cold and wind (more than I expected even in Patagonia) Assistance from staff excellent.
