El Galpon Del Glaciar - Patagonia Estancia Highlights

Only 20 kilometers away from El Calafate, on the same route to the Perito Moreno Glacier, it is located an old sheep farm named “El Galpón del Glaciar”. The establishment is surrounded by 3,5 kilometers of shore of the Lago Argentino and 1,5 kilometers of riverbank of the Centinela River: both offer an ideal environment to enjoy activities in contact with nature. ¡Be part of a diferent way to enjoy Patagonia!

We invite you to discover the "Dia de Campo" (field trip), an ideal program to enjoy Patagonia and get in close contact with nature. You will be greet with a traditional reception at the old shearing shed, which was built in 1912. Then you will get to know the Estancia and learn about its history, the place and all the typical activities in Patagonia: a guided walk to the shores of the Lago Argentino, sheepherding with kelpies dogs and gauchos, shearing demonstration and other rural activities.
To end an exciting day, a delicious dinner with the famous Patagonian Lamb and a local music show add up to experience the true life in Patagonia.
