While some remote corners offer nary a service, much of Patagonia has a wide range of lodgings, from park campgrounds to fine hotels. Estancias offer a taste of traditional ranch life. In summer it's wise to reserve well in advance.

Estancias in Patagonia

Most assume estancias (ranches) are all about livestock, but these offbeat offerings prove otherwise.

A Wealth of Wildlife

Breathtaking Beauty

  • Luxuriate among glaciers, lakes and the ragged Cerro Fitz Roy in the exclusive Hostería Estancia Helsingfors.
  • Explore the wonders of a petrified forest and sea islands inhabited solely by birds, penguins and sea lions at the magical Bahía Bustamante.

Just Like Indiana Jones

  • Trek to Unesco World Heritage site Cueva de las Manos from Hostería Cueva de las Manos, via the serpentine red-rock canyon of Río de las Pinturas.
