Estancia Cristina Reviews
This is a long day out. A drive out for 45 minutes is the same route as to Moreno glacier, followed by a two hour boat ride on a luxury catamaran to the estancia which is up a leg on the north side..... more »
Excursion Trekking full day THE BEST. You need a good physical conditions because the experience lasts all day more »
This is a really nice trip. There are several options for activity once you are at the ranch. The lunch was tasty and service efficient. The boat trip gets a view of the face of the Upsala Glacier and many icebergs calving from the glacier. Upon landing at the ranch, the group is devided into subgroups depending on which activity you chose. The staff and crew are very helpful and efficient. Tours are offered in Spanish or English but many of the guides speak other languages as well. I chose the Discovery option which includes a 4x4 drive up the mountain and a hike to an overlook where a large section of the icefield and glaciers are dramatically displayed. The views are stunning and unlike anything I've ever seen. The guides explain a bit about the glaciers and the Southern Icefield, which is the 3rd largest in the world. Whichever option you choose, this a trip not to be missed.
Excellent walk! Spectacular views! History to be missed
