Día del rancho Nibepo Aike y cabalgata desde el Calafate
If you arrive at El Calafate in the morning or if you depart at night, the half-day program is perfect to experience the Patagonian rural life and complements the tour to the glaciers. It can be visited either in the morning or the afternoon and participate in different activities according to the time of each one. Among the activities, visitors can attend tests for horse reins and sheep shearing demonstration, and hikes. The trip includes an exquisite lamb grilled on a traditional Patagonian cross stake.
If you are available for the entire day, you can opt for the Full Day Option where, after lunch, you will have the opportunity to take a 3-hour horseback riding with a profesional guide.
Far from mass tourism is the Estancia Nibepo Aike. A place that keeps the essence of the old Patagonian estancias. Dedicated to bovine production with a Hereford cabin and many vestiges of the time of the sheep production boom, it's an ideal place to enjoy an immersion in the life of an authentic Patagonian estancia.
You'll be picked up directly from your hotel. Head along Ruta 15, also known as Camino de las Estancias (The Ranch Route), along which you should see some condors, foxes and hares as well as Frías hill in the background.
After entering Los Glaciares national park, we’ll arrive at the ranch.
Our hosts will welcome us with a hot drink (tea, coffee or mate) and pastries.
You’ll then have some time to enjoy the gorgeous views of the Andes mountain range and have a walk around to discover and learn about the history of the ranch.
Set out a guided horse riding tour (1 hour for the half-day option, 3 hours for the full day option), to see some of the most incredible, hidden parts of Patagonia.
