Estancia Cristina is a first class way to experience the beauty of Patagonia. Their accommodations are private, comfortable and tasteful with beautiful views. The staff are extremely welcoming and willing to make your stay as special as they can. We were awed by the glacial canyons and grasslands and took advantage of the differing ways to experience it (breath-taking day long hike downhill and on horseback - both with expert guides). The food is absolutely delicious and service is excellent. The boat ride in/out through the blue-tinged floating ice bergs capped off a stellar trip. Estancia Cristina was definitely the highlight of our 15 days in South America!
