Description

Located on the northwest coast of Lake Argentino, at the end of the Cristina Arm, Estancia Cristina keeps a unique corner in the Los Glaciares National Park. Founded in 1914 by Joseph P. Masters and his wife, Estanciaaún retains its essence, keeping alive the history of this pioneer family, which with effort and perseverance, made this inhospitable and solitary place, a small paradise; your home.
The Upsala Glacier, located a few kilometers from the Estancia, is one of the most important in Los Glaciares National Park. Sailing the Argentino Lake between icebergs and mountains and then visiting Estancia Cristina, is transformed into a perfect combination of nature, adventure, history and pleasure.
Our transfer begins to look for the passengers, starting at 7:00 am through the lobby of the hotel / inn in El Calafate. The presentation time at Puerto Bandera (Pier National Parks) is at 08:15 a.m. without exception.
Those who arrive at port on their own should respect this schedule.
Includes a visit to the Costumbrista Museum, an old shearing shed, where passengers will be introduced to the history of the Estancia. Then a guided walk to the River Caterina and the Chapel and walk through the historic center of the Estancia. An ascent is made in all-terrain vehicles to the Refugio de Hielos
Continental, traveling 9.5 km by mountain road, where the landscape has a great geological interest, since until recently was covered by glaciers. From the refuge, a walk of about 20 minutes on glacial erosion terrain is undertaken, until reaching the Upsala Viewpoint, from where privileged views of the Eastern front of the Upsala Glacier, Lake Guillermo, Southern Patagonian Ice and Andes Mountain Range are obtained. Return to the Estancia by ATV and then return to El Calafate.
