ESTANCIA LA MAIPU OFFERS AN ENTICING ESCAPE

Go off-grid at Estancia La Maipu, a remote outpost in Argentine Patagonia with access to an extensive network of riding and hiking trails.

Two hours from the nearest paved road, Estancia La Maipu offers an enticing escape – well worth the four-hour drive from El Calafate Airport. Stretching along the deep waters of San Martin Lake to the towering peaks of the Andes Mountain range, the surrounding estancia – roamed by guanacos, horses, sheep and the occasional puma – is a joy to explore.

Guests are invited to explore this remote wilderness via an extensive network of trails that range from easy day hikes to more challenging multi-day circuits. Camping expeditions can also be arranged, in addition to bird watching, fishing and horse riding excursions deep into the Cordillera de los Andes.

Earthy and homespun, the lodge itself comprises just six cosy rooms, with common areas for admiring the scenic lake views. The chef at Estancia La Maipu often cooks up delicious meals over an open fire, slow-roasting large spits of meat ready to greet guests back from their bracing explorations. Don’t miss a visit to the small onsite museum for a glimpse into the region’s fascinating history.
