Accommodations for Andean Crossing from Argentina into Chile

The trip starts at the estancia. There are three guest lodges just a stroll across the lawn from the main farmhouse. We have eight twin/double rooms, all with bathroom en-suite and there are communal sitting room areas in each cabin.
On the camping expedition, guests will sleep in two person tents. Good quality, down sleeping bags are provided. Camp staff provide the preparation of tents and meals, and also look after the horses. One night of the camping portion does not have any vehicle support. That day all camping gear etc is transported on pack horses. Consequently, that night camping is a bit more rustic than the other nights!


Meals at the estancia are served in the dinning room of the main house and guests gather for drinks in front of the fire in the living room. Alternatively we make use of the 'quincho', our function room, with an open fire pit perfect for 'asados' and dancing if the occasion arises! During the camping trip, meals are prepares by the staff and are usually "Asado Style" - grilled over the open fire.
Lunch and dinner are large meals in Argentina. Ham and bacon from our pigs are cured in the smoke-house, eggs come from the chicken run; milk and home made yogurt from the dairy cow and of course our own beef, venison and wild boar. With our large orchards, fruit is in abundance and all the preserves, bottle fruit, even the apple juice are homemade! There is a large vegetable garden and bread is freshly baked on a daily basis!
Argentine wines are finally achieving international recognition and we like to serve wines from the province. The beers and spirits are good too - we always have a siesta!
We can cater for different dietary requirements - but please give us prior notice.
