This is a typical itinerary for this productPass By:
Upsala Glacier, El Calafate Argentina
Estancia Cristina has the great advantage of being extremely close to the Upsala Glacier, one of the most awe-inspiring sights in Los Glaciares National Park that’s only a few kilometers from our lodge. Perhaps the most unforgettable experience when staying with us is cruising along the waters of Lake Argentino, with soaring mountains and icebergs as a dramatic backdrop before reaching the face of mighty Upsala itself.Stop At:
Estancia Cristina, Av. del Libertador 1037, Z9405 El Calafate, Santa Cruz, Argentina
Estancia Cristina is tucked away in a pristine, north-westerly corner of Lake Argentino in Los Glaciares National Park, right at the furthest end of the Cristina Channel near the incredible Upsala Glacier. Our rural ranch is steeped in history, founded over a century ago in 1914 by Joseph and Jessie Masters, who came from the UK to start a new life in this beautiful yet utterly remote place.
