What to expect
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. Heading over to the gazebo on the ranch, our asado lunch or dinner (according to the option you choose), Patagonian lamb, will be served with the backdrop of the Andes mountains.

Glorious Day On A Patagonian Ranch
Feb 2020 • Family
Had an amazing experience. Everything was perfect. Started off with a coffee and pastries and a warm welcome. Next we saw a sheep roundup and cow being milked. Then went on a scenic horseback ride. The horses were very calm. The view was breathtaking. Then we saw a sheep sheeting and learned all about the sheep and ranch. Then we had a great big lunch with lots of wine, delicious lamb and sausage, salad and flan. The dining room was scenic and warm and cozy. They were so accommodating. We were 3 families - a big group of 11 and our hosts did such a nice job seating us together and arranging for us all to tour together as much as possible even with some of us on the 1 hour horseback ride and some on the 3 hour ride. It meant a lot to us as we are a family that came together for this trip from 6 different cities all across the US. We highly recommend this tour. They were fantastic!

Disappointing
Jan 2020
The sheep shearing with traditional tools and the method of holding the sheep during the shearing was interesting and the highlight of the tour. Be forewarned that the guide as well as the horses do not work/walk in the rain. Even though we were prepared and had on full rain gear for our 3 hours of horseback riding, it was shortened to an hour and for the remainder of the time we were abandoned at the ranch house with nothing do while waiting for our return transport. We were offered no other options and no refund. Not worth the money or long transport time.
