The scenic landscape of Estancia Ranquilco in Patagonia, Argentina


Estancia Ranquilco

Argentina's rugged Patagonia region boasts one of the most dramatic landscapes in the world. Spread over 100,000 acres in the foothills of the Andes, Estancia Ranquilco introduces travelers to the steppes, valleys and meadows of this unforgettable area. The grand stone-and-wood main lodge complements a pair of freestanding cottages, all featuring singular architecture, antique furnishings and an ambience drenched in traditional gaucho culture. Shoeing horses, milking cows and baking bread are just a few ways guests can participate in daily ranch life. For experienced riders, volunteer programs include horse roundups, guiding trail rides and pony express duties. Days spent roaming the range, hiking in search of condors and fly fishing on the Trocoman River are followed by home-style Patagonian meals paired with Argentine wines.
