Thoroughly enjoyed our full day trip to Estancia Christina. The weather helped as we had such wonderful views on the boat and after the 4x4 ride to the viewpoint of Upsala glacier. The discovery part of our tour about the historical side of this Estancia was really interesting.

The boat ride revealed some magnificient sights and iceburgs but be prepared for rough "seas"; the 4x4 trek on dirt roads to the summit was harrowing but so worth it since few actually make the trip; the historic tour of the Estancia lent a "real" aspect to the hardships endured

My family and I enjoyed the view from the viewpoint, but keep in mind the trip from El Calafate is 1 hour by bus, 2.5-3 hours on boat and another 1 hour in the 4x4 just to get there. The historical museum after lunch is not very interesting. I wish we got to go back to the city

Dear Chtorng Thanks a lot for taking the time and share your experience on TA. Patagonia is so huge that distances make places far from any city or even small towns. We know it is a long day but plenty of surprises and different steps. The sailing is not just a transfer, but an excursion itself and then, you have the activity you booked, and then lunch, etc.etc., but it is true, it is a log long day, as most of the tours in Patagonia. We appreciate your honesty, which really helps us to improve day by day. Kind regards Estancia Cristina Staff

Imagine to spend the day sailing between icebergs with amazing landscapes, then get into a 4x4 to go up in the mountain to enjoy the magnificent lookout of the Upsala Glacier or walk in a valley full of fosils... well, you can make this a reality taking the tour to Estancia
