Cristina offers comfortable rooms and attentive service for those who really want a way to get off the grid. The remote setting surrounded by mountain views, crystal clear streams and glacier-fed mountains is truly out of this world.

Estonia Christina is a very special place with a unique a nd wonderful ambience. The accommodations, service and food are all superb but what really sets it apart is the location and setting. The views, hiking and horseback riding are all magnificent. I hope to have the opportunity to return to this magical place.

After the 8am 3 hour ferry ride to the estancia we were ready for lunch!! The boat ride can be a little rough because of the constant wind. The lodge is very warm and cozy and you feel like you are in a home rather than a lodge, which of course you are. The rooms are all in "out buildings"...

This is an incredibly beautiful location. The service was fIrst class all round. The guides were all extremely well informed and all the staff were so helpful. I would definitely love to return for a longer stay. The lodges have amazing views and are furnished beautifully. I can't recommend this highly enough.

Visiting Estancia Cristina is a "must do" when you are in Bariloche. The boat ride on lake Argentino is spectacular, as you are confronted with maneuvering around all the icebergs going by! Once you arrive the setting is spectacular. If you get the opportunity to stay at the lodge for 1 or 2 nights, it is well worth it. The...

Our stay at this estancia exceeded our expectations. Service, staff and food were spot on even though we had only a one-night, two-day stay. After check-in we just sat by the window in our room gazing at the glaciers and all their wonder. The biggest hares I’ve ever seen habituated the meadows. The horseback ride that afternoon through the surrounding...

This was my favourite part of Argentina - I loved everything about it - from the 3 hour boat trip getting to the Estancia to the horse riding and nature trails. If you want to 'get away from it all' then this is THE place to relax, unwind and connect with nature. The rooms are very pleasant and each have...

We enjoyed everything about our stay at Estancia Cristina. The location is incredible-beautiful and peaceful with so much to explore.

My friend and I had an outstanding experience at the lodge. We went at the end of the tourist season which I highly recommend because we ended up being two of four people staying at the lodge, making it an exceptionally private experience.
