  • We are exceptionally fortunate to be nestled amidst the most picturesque scenery in the Andean Patagonia and Parque Nacional Los Glaciares.
  • Fishermen who visit us have access to the sacred headwaters of the mighty Río Caterina, where the king salmon is widely considered the fisherman’s ultimate dream.
  • From the end of December through mid-April, massive amounts of King salmon run upriver, and from January to mid-March, the sheer number and size of fish are spectacular.

THE WILD BEYOND

SUSTAINABLEINITIATIVES

Electric supply Policy
We take care of nature by using low-consumption electricity, on a timed schedule for better efficiency, and complementing it with solar energy in each of our rooms.

COMMITMENTTO THE ICE

We comply with the Progressive Reduction Regulations and the specific Ban on Plastics in our Parque Nacional. As members of the Refill Not Landfill global campaign, we have set up water refill stations in the Estancia and promote the usage of reusable bottles.

RESEARCH CONTRIBUTION

Patagonia is home to a diverse and immense ecosystem. It is easy to run into condors, red foxes or pumas. The proximity to these animal species as well as to the continental ice attracts hundreds of geologists, glaciologists and tourism students, so we decided to support their research with lodging.

ECOLOGICAL DECISIONS
WE DECIDE TO CARE

  • Our daily schedule follows the natural cycle and for any additional light needed, we use low-consumption LEDs.
  • We have installed solar panels as an energy supplement.
  • We opt for sorting and recycling our waste.
  • Our suppliers use durable and reusable packaging.
  • We favor the use of biodegradable elements.
  • We provide individual glass bottles for guests.
  • Water refill stations are available at the Estancia. 
  • We support environmental research and studies.
