When Do You Want To Go?
Nearly everyone who visits the Parque Nacional Los Glaciares wants to experience the life of a gaucho, an authentic Argentinian cowboy. Estancia Nibepo Aike allows you to do just that, as this is a working Croatian pioneer ranch, specialising in breeding sheep. You can enjoy a whole host of ranch demonstrations, saddle up and go horseback riding, and learn about the local lifestyle from bilingual guides.
Each of the heated rooms is located in the traditional wooden house and is decorated with rustic touches and parquet floors. A selection of high-resolution photos adorns the walls, giving you insight into the history of the region. This is as authentic a stay as you can have in Argentina, allowing you to step back in time and experience the gaucho lifestyle.
A full buffet breakfast, including juice, fruit, freshly baked bread, and local jam, is included in every stay. Throughout the rest of the day, guests can enjoy a wide array of dishes from the on-site restaurant, and dine on a mouth-watering barbecue spread in the evening.
If you want to explore the area beyond the activities of the ranch, you are welcome to borrow a bicycle from the hotel, or you can trek through the surrounding hills on foot with the services of a local guide. The hotel is happy to arrange airport transfers from El Calafate, 42 miles away (extra costs may apply; inquire with the hotel).
