Fodor's Review

This lovely estancia is an hour and a half from El Calafate in a bucolic valley overlooking Lago Roca and backed by snowcapped mountain peaks; sheep, horses, and cows graze among purple lupine flowers, and friendly gauchos give horse-racing and sheep-shearing demonstrations. The attached restaurant serves up a truly exceptional lamb and beef barbecue. It's possible to visit Nibepo Aike by booking a day trip at the office in downtown El Calafate, but the best way to experience this unique property is a two-night stay in comfortable rooms decorated with original antiques and ranching memorabilia. The name Nibepo is a combination of the nicknames of the original owner's three daughters—Nini, Bebe, and Porota. All-inclusive packages are available, as is breakfast only; options include visiting glaciers and horse-riding trips where you'll ride along the shores of an emerald glacier lake.
