An estancia which is not at all touristic! Esteban and his ancestors had been on this land before the creation of the city of el calafate! The story of his ancestors, the finding of archeological gems on his land and his absolutely amazing horses made this day a real pleasure for us! The workers and the owner are really welcoming,...

We went to Rio Mitre as a quick day trip but we got so much more. The lodge had the most epic views. Just the most beautiful Patagonia landscape and big sky. And then we looked down and saw the cutest goats hanging out right in front of the house. On the horseback ride to the lake, we got to...

We have just had a wonderful 3 days at Rio Mitre. Esteban and team simply could not have been any more hospitable, welcoming, generous and friendly. We really felt absorbed into things and were treated as part of the team rather than distanced guests. A real highlight of Patagonia, particularly after the overwhelming touristy-ness of El Calafate. Rio Mitre is...

We've been there for two days, did the cabalgata larga (4h horse riding + asado) on the first day and had the Cordero for dinner. The next day Esteban invited us to have lunch with him and then brought us to the airport (for free!). Our stay at the estancia was an absolutely unique experience and we're hoping to return...

We ended up at Estancia Rio Mitre due to our hotel overbooking their horseback ride. I am so unbelievably glad that happened. Most horseback rides you can book are a sanitized, one-after-the-other slog down a trail. That is not Rio Mitre. This is a working estancia at the foot of the beautiful Patagonian mountains next to the Perito Moreno Glaciar-fed...

Rio Mitre is a hidden gem, down a dirt road about 60km from Calfate town and situated right on Lago Roca with amazing views to the snow capped mountains and across the wild Patagonian plains. The day's riding is really enjoyable and relaxing and Esteban and his team are extremely hospitable. The home made torta and asado at the end...

My adult daughter and myself were picked by Paul one of the owners of Rio Mitre and driven for nearly an hour to this timeless Estancia. Surrounded by snow capped mountains and glacial lakes we had a day which will be always remembered. The hospitality was superb with wine and a BBQ for lunch hosted by Paul's son and a...

We were picked up on time at our hostel. The trip to the estancia took only 20 min. Our arrival was wonderful cause we were welcomed by a couple of goats and a lama - a so called "Guanaco". The owner are very very friendly! After a coffee and a shared chorizo sausage we could feed the little goats with...

Beautiful experience! Super friendly Esteban was a great host. The 2 hours ride sorrounded by the desert, the wild horses and cows, and for that absolutely and magnificent silence were a lifetime experience. I would repeat it everyday if I could. Very important when you get there -respect that environment and experience all the little moments. Unforgetable.
