Rustically authentic working ranch beside Lake Roca, within Los Glaciares National Park. Take part in the everyday life of the farm with its timeless rural atmosphere and soak up the views.

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. 

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

Meals varied in quality. A wonderful 'off the beaten track' location which was very quiet during our visit.
