Head from El Calafate an hour south-west into Los Glaciers National Park to Estancia Nibepo Aike which has preserved the charm and traditions of the original pioneering ranch settlers here. Here you can get a slice of Patagonian rural life. The ranch itself comprises 12,000 hectares extending all the way to the Chilean border, once a sheep rearing facility, now with a small herd still alongside Hereford cattle. Enjoy a half day trip to Nibepo Aike ranch among beautiful mountain scenery, either in the morning or afternoon, to take in a sheep-shearing demonstration, carried out just as it was done over a century ago. Short hikes and horse-back rides are also available. The highlight is of course a traditional Patagonian lamb lunch or dinner, cooked asado-style over an open fire.
