Estancia Nibepo Aike
Situated on the southern arm of Lago Argentino within the Los Glaciares National Park, Nibepo Aike is a traditional Patagonian estancia occupying 12,000 hectares. Once devoted to sheep farming, its chief activity today is breeding Hereford cattle of which it has developed a prestigious herd.
The estancia was first settled by a Croatian, Santiago Peso, at the start of the 20th century and has a fascinating history. Today Adolfo, Santiago’s grandson, runs the estate and ensures all guests’ needs are catered for.
Nibepo Aike’s old main house and buildings are of typical Patagonian construction, with the main house modified to provide guest accommodation. There are 10 simple en suite bedrooms, a living room with log fire and a rustic dining room serving tasty homemade meals made with meat from the estancia’s herd and vegetables from their vegetable garden.
Dining room, living room, heating and gardens.
Activities could include a variety of hikes and horse rides, or participating in the daily estancia tasks which, depending on the season, might include livestock herding or breaking in Criollo horses. Mountain bikes are also available for use free of charge.
The best months to visit the estancia are from October to April
