El Calafate and Los Glaciares National Park: Estancia Nibepo Aike

Visit Us

Estancia Nibepo Aike

This sweet and charming hideaway is set on a working ranch, the only one within Los Glaciares National Park to accept guests. There are just five simple but cosy and well-appointed rooms, furnished with local textiles. All around, cattle and sheep roam grounds abuzz with an unalloyed sense of everyday Patagonian life, in which you are warmly invited to take part in during your stay. 

The main building of Estancia Nibepo Aike is clad in corrugated iron in the typical local style, is fringed with colourful blooms. Inside, an open fire and country-cottage florals lend the cosy lounge a homely ambience. Meals are served either in the welcoming dining room or in the quincho, a traditional outdoor barbeque area where regular meat feasts take place.

As you would expect from its spectacular location beside Lake Roca (an hour’s drive from El Calafate), the estancia is superbly situated for trekking and shorter scenic walks. Other activities include participating in farming activities, watching the gauchos herd cattle and shear sheep, or heading out into the idyllic surrounds on horseback.
