Estancia Cerro Guido

A remote and rustic Patagonian working estancia 40km from Torres del Paine National Park.

The 101,000-hectare Estancia Cerro Guido dates back to the pioneering days of the 1920s and offers a more authentic experience to the lodges in Torres del Paine. As a working estancia, you'll witness the traditional Gaucho lifestyle and immerse yourself in the heritage and culture of this small and isolated community.

The old farmhouses faithfully reflect their 1920s appearance with white-painted zinc walls and red tin pitched roofs. There are 12 cosy guest rooms, each one in keeping with the original English style of the place, with modern bathrooms. Tasty three-course meals are served using organic produce from the estancia's allotments and orchards and the large restaurant windows allow you to observe the dramatic, ever-changing Patagonian sky cast its long shadow of the sweeping steppe beneath.

A wide range of excursions by foot, horseback or 4x4 are available. Some of these go to Torres del Paine national park, but there are some wonderful adventures to be had within the estancia's grounds - after all it is the size of greater Santiago! - and the lesser visited Sierra Baguales.
