About Estancia Cristina
Located on the Northwest shore of the Argentine Lake on the far of Cristiana’s arm, Estancia Cristina is located in a unique corner in Los Glaciares National Park. Founded in 1941 by Joseph P. Masters and his wife, this stunning place still maintains its essence, keeping the history of this family alive, that with great effort and perseverance, made this lonely and inhospitable place a small paradise a home. This full day program grants alternatives to those who prefer a quiet afternoon of walk and history as well as those who are into adventure with trekking and 4x4 wheel drive rides.

I stayed at the Estancia for 3 days and 2 nights. I must say, you get what you pay for. Everything was perfect ! My bedroom was absolutely beautiful, big, and comfortable with a view of the mountains. The food was delicious, whether it’s the buffet or off the menu. I did the three days horse riding and my guide took me to different places each day. Being inside a national park you can only imagine how extraordinary the views are. I felt safe. It’s a peaceful place. Highly recommend if you can afford it.

we sailed to the estancia,drove to a point and had a short hike to a breath taking view of Uppsala glacier. The scene was so perfect that we have been asked if it was a fake background. We also were able to hike around the estancia, visit the museum and learn about the pioneers to this area.

Reminiscing about our great stay at Estancia Christina in March 2019. It started with a great boat tour of Lake Argentina and the many glaciers around it and the many ice bergs in it. We were then dropped off in this remote location of Estania Christna to enjoy the peaceful accommodations and their great meals. The first afternoon we went horseback riding, the next couple of days we went hiking. The guides were great and the scenery fantastic. If you can’t afford to stay at least take their boat tour and hike through Fossil Canyon.
