I wouldn't bother with this visit. This is not a working estancia but a tourist trap. Everything is staged for the tourist. A few sheep and cattle and the slowest sheep shearer in the world. The location is fantastic and the only thing that made this worthwhile was the trip there.

A great day spent on this farm. Worth the long drive out to it. Incredible Patagonian lamb BBQ served with lovely red wine and salad. Horse riding in some of the most picturesque surroundings at the end of a valley with Chile on one side of the range and Argentina on the other. A great experience of you have an...

You take a dirt road to get there so be ready for that, it's a fun drive. I arrived at 2pm and was told no power or wifi until 6pm. Kinda of a bummer. There were approximately 12 people staying at the estancia. For some odd reason I was told I was having dinner at another restaurant on the property...

This is a working ranch that also provides an experience to tourists. Their van picks folks up in Calafate for the long bumpy drive. The ranch is private property surrounded by the national park. Horse rides are available for an extra charge, we enjoyed this ride and the views it afforded. The same gaucho that led the ride also sheared...

We were part of a small group of day trippers coming from El Calafate looking to see a working ranch in Argentina. This destination accomplished that with a veneer of gentleness for the tourist. The ride out was the Duane Eddy instrumental from the 1960s...Forty Miles of Bad Road. We observed some sheep work (herding and shearing) and took a...

We did have a good time on our stay in Nibepo Aike, the stroll around the property and the explanations from the local guide where nice, but nothing really outstanding, except perhaps the manual sheep shearing demonstration, which I'd say was the highlight. The lunch menu was typical Patagonian lamb, decent enough too, but not really outstanding -- maybe we're...

The estancia is a very well kept farm. The rooms are nice and clean. Staff is nice. Food was good. It's very remote at the bottom of a mountain with a lot of nature around. Our daughters were allowed to help with sheep and horses and had a blast.

The views are outstanding at this estancia. The trip to the estancia is also quite beautiful. It was quite a long ride approximately 25 - 35 minutes riding on rough dirt roads to reach the estancia. I found it a little confusing upon arrival as to where to park and enter the main building. Nobody offered to help with the...

Once you get to El Calafate to sail on Lake Argentina and watch the glaciers you may consider staying on an Estancia in lieu of a regular hotel. It is definitely different. It is a 90 min off road trip into the wilderness. Rooms are simple but clean, historic and charming. Food is simple hearty and tasty. Staff is very...

It takes about two hours to reach this remote estancia near the Chilean border, but it is well worth the journey. We were warmly greeted and escorted on a hike around the principal grounds. Then we saw a sheep shearing demonstration. Our meal in the cookhouse was a fabulous representation of a gaucho parrillo. Then a gaucho took us on...
