When Do You Want To Go?

The legendary Estancia Cristina is found within Los Glaciares National Park, at the foot of the majestic Cerro Norte (North Mountain), in the valley of the Caterina river, one of Patagonia’s most fascinating yet less known valleys, a preferred access to the Patagonian Ice-Field. Its strategic location was of vital importance to numerous explorers and adventurers who travelled these lands and stopped here for provisions and assistance.

The journey to La Cristina takes us across the Lago Argentino (Lake Argentino) among icebergs and mountains and past the imposing Upsala Glacier, one of the largest glaciers in Los Glaciares National Park.

Enjoy the incredible scenery and the feeling of being in a secluded get-a-way as you come close to the culture and history of the pioneers of this remote land. This full day program offers different alternatives to suit those who prefer a quiet day of touring and history as well as the more adventurous who like trekking and riding in a four wheel drive vehicle. All options begin at the port known as “Puerto de la Cruz”, 47km. from downtown El Calafate. The ship leaves from Punta Bandera and we sail across Lago Argentino to the Avellaneda Peninsula passing through the Devil’s mouth all the way to the Upsala glacier. Here we stop to admire the colossal ice front and surrounding icebergs. The navigation then continues until we enter the Cristina canal to disembark at the beach of the old Estancia Cristina.
