Patagonia Estancia Alta Vista
Southern Patagonia Argentina

Los Glaciares National Park is your destination for the best viewing of wildlife, birds and glaciers in Patagonia, as well as stunning views of Argentina's Pilar Mountains. The very comfortable Patagonia AltaVista Estancia is a great base for excursions into the surrounding tundra, mountains, and glaciers. Explore the interior of a glacier, or get an up-close view of the towering ice walls of Perito Moreno. Birdwatchers can lookout for glimpses of the Andean condor, Magellanic woodpecker, red backed hawk Austral parakeets, the rare choique or lesser rhea.

Located 20 miles west of Calafate in the Argentine Patagonia, and on the road to the Perito Moreno glacier, Alta Vista is part of a 60,000 hectare sheep ranch. Built at the turn of the century, the single storey house is surrounded by poplar trees. Lodgings are in six beautifully decorated double rooms and one suite - all with private bathrooms. There is a dining room and large sitting room and bar area. The gardens are lovely, despite the unforgiving nature of the surrounding steppe. 

One of the main activities is of course horseback riding. Join the ranch hands or go on leisurely trail rides. The Estancia Anita is part of the ranch property and rides over to see the day to day ranch activities on horseback is always a great adventure.

During your stay you can also enjoy a range of other activities - including  walking, fishing, relaxation and visits to the Los Glaciares National Park, home of the famous Perito Moreno, Upsala and Onelli glaciers.
