We did the four hour horse ride with lamb lunch. The location of the estancia is spectacular, and the lamb lunch was excellent. If you're looking for something else to do in El Calafate other than glaciers don't hesitate to book this. The only thing stopping this getting five stars is the fact our guide didn't speak any English and... More

My boyfriend & I had the best 4 travel days we've ever had in Patagonia (and we've had incredible trips all over the US and abroad). This was an absolute highlight for us that we can't encourage you strongly enough to experience! Luciano was a true gaucho, which was a treat! He's been running the estancia for 12 years now...

Excellent place, food and people.!!! You feel like on a western movie, the environment is spectacular. And landscape is breathtaking. Horse-back ride was great and they were very polite all the time. 100% recommended!

This was one of my favorite days of our 18 day trip to Argentina. The scenery on this estancia is breathtaking and the amazing family that runs it are so fascinating and genuinely nice people. We had some coffee when we got there, played with a baby llama, hung out with the sheep, and then went for a horse back... More

What an incredible experience! My husband and I were the only people on our horseback ride. Esteban and his family are so friendly, helpful, and attentive. Although Esteban does not speak English, his son does, and we communicated just fine with a mix of Spanish and English when needed. The lunch served on our ride was simple - pan seared... More

Had a great morning, rode for 2 hours and included transfers from the town. Beautiful lunch (including tea & coffee) and Eva was very helpful, always prompt when booking and lovely to go riding with. Really enjoyed this experience and would recommend it. Great value!

When planning our trip to Argentina, we were keen to spend a day at an estancia, soaking up an authentic 'gaucho' experience. After much research, we became a little disillusioned with the number of estancia trips out of BA on offer, that when you scratch the surface are real 'bus them in, bus them out' tourism-by-numbers jobs. Then we stumbled... More

I initially planned to go on another Estancia but „luckily“ my reservation got lost. When I asked at the reception in my hostel (America del Sur which I highly recommend), I was told that there is a smaller Estancia offering really nice horseback riding tours so I signed up and I had a day that I will remember for all...

Estancia Rio Mitre is a scenic 40 minute drive from El Calafate. The estancia building itself is charming, has spectacular views, & we were welcomed with coffee before our ride. Zelmar was our guide for our 2.5 hour ride (with only four riders!)-- we absolutely loved it. I am a horseback rider and am very picky about trail rides and... More

Esteban, the owner of the estancia, picked us up down town and took us to his beautiful property about 40mins away. There, we were able to bottle feed baby goats, go on a personalized tour to the lake on horse, and enjoy a delicious lamb. The whole experience had a very homey feel to it and we would definitely recommend... More
