What to do at Estancia Cerro Guido?

Far from crowds, Estancia Cerro Guido offers guests a window into the daily life of the Patagonian countryside.

Spend the day with the gauchos on the ranch. Learn about the traditional shearing ritual, take care of the horses and get to know the heritage of the Estancia. Accompany the conservation team with their daily activities, such as reviewing camera traps for pumas. Stroll around the Estancia’s greenhouses to discover how vegetables are ingeniously grown in this challenging climate. Or take a guided bike ride through the property to discover its rich biodiversity. 

Beyond the borders of the ranch, take guided hikes through the diverse landscapes of Torres del Paine National Park. Follow trails through lengua forests, alongside glacial lakes and past hanging glaciers. Summit Cerro Guido, the highest peak of the Sierra Contreras, to discover Chenque, the highest indigenous cemetery to be found in Southern Patagonia. Ride on horseback through the immensity of the Patagonian steppe to reach Los Flamencos Lagoon. Or drive through the diverse landscapes in a 4×4.

After your expeditions, curl up by the fire playing games, reading your book and sharing stories from your day. Each evening, a four-course dinner is served in the restaurant that boasts views of the majestic Paine Massif.

Map & location

When to Travel

In Patagonia, the weather is very changeable. It’s not uncommon to experience all four seasons in a single day, or in just a few hours. We recommend visiting throughout the open season, from September (the beginning of Spring in Patagonia) through to April, when the lengua trees turn ablaze with the arrival of autumn.
