General

Nibepo Aike lodge is an estancia that retains the essence of the original Patagonian estancias. Located inside the “Los Glaciares” National Park on the banks of the Southern Arm of Argentino Lake. Covering an area of more than 12,000 hectares, it stretches as far as the border with Chile.

Over 100 years ago, a Croatian pioneer found his place on earth in these lands. Nowadays, after four generations, the very same family still runs the estancia and its rural activity. However, today they do not raise as many sheep as they used to, but its chief output is breeding Hereford cattle, for which it has developed a prestigious herd.

Its proximity with El Calafate, Puerto Banderas and the glacier Perito Moreno has made Nibepo a perfect location for travelers.

At Nibepo Aike, rural activity with the horses, cattle or herd, never stops, despite the snow or the cold weather.  In order to be acquainted with the rural life of the estancia and its breathtaking landscape, the best option is to spend two or three nights.

With a maximum capacity of 22 persons, exclusiveness and warmth are guaranteed. Horseback riding and hiking are the principal activities. Furthermore, visitors may enjoy the cuisine: vegetables from the garden, and the famous lamb grilled on a traditional Patagonian cross stake.

Other activities include rural work in the corrals (cattle branding, dressage, milking), cattle herding and sheep shearing. Different paths allow to explore the corners of the estancia and discover its flora and fauna. The valley of the Cachorro River, the shores of the Argentino Lake, the border milestone with Chile and the Cerro Cristal hillside are some of the places where guests can go hiking, horse back riding or biking. Panoramic points show the Perito Moreno Glacier and the Hidden Glaciers, the southernmost ones of the National Park.
