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.

What our clients say

  • Being served Pisco Sours on the deck of the boat at Grey Glacier.  The scenery was stunning and came as a surprise after the poor visibility on the outward trip.

    AM, Glasgow
  • The visit was basically divided into three separate parts - self driving on the Carretera Austral, the ferry cruise which I arranged separately, and the visit to Tierra Patagonia. In their very different ways, all were excellent and memorable.

    TAK, Ilkley
  • I loved the desert and my husband liked Patagonia.  The lunch in the Casablanca wine valley was outstanding.

  • Patagonia for its stark beauty, stunning snow covered mountains and tranquility.

    SB, Solihull
  • Most memorable experiences: The Atacama Desert.  An impressive place with friendly people.  The  Ahlarkapin Observatory trip was outstanding and a real highlight.

    PM, Redditch
  • Most Memorable Moment?: Difficult to say as so many. I think seeing the first upright statues on Easter Island as I've wanted to see them since I was a child
