What we love about Estancia La Josefina

  • Estancia La Josefina offers a sense of unparalleled solitude and vastness. Encounter virgin nature, a boundless landscape, and undisturbed wildlife. The journey to reach the estancia itself involves traversing glacial rivers and the vast Patagonian steppe, while condors, guanacos, choiques, and flamingos welcome you at the impressive Lago San Martín.
  • The unique accommodations add to the experience. Stay in one of three dome rooms, each with a private bathroom, hot water, wood heating, and accommodating up to four people.
  • From horseback riding and hiking to fishing, kayaking, and boat trips, Estancia La Josefina offers a plethora of outdoor activities to help you fully appreciate the surrounding environment.
  • Savor the flavors of Patagonia with meals prepared on traditional wooden stoves. Local specialties, including barbecue, disco meals, garden-fresh vegetables, and lake-caught trout, coupled with the warmth of the local people, will make you feel right at home.
  • The remote location, nestled in the Southern Patagonia mountains, captivates with its natural beauty. Embrace the solitude with no cell phone signal and limited internet use.
  • Estancia Josefina is an environmental project, and sustainability is at the forefront of everything they do here. Wind generators, solar power, and wood heating provide energy to the domes.
