wander beyond

Estancia Ranquilco is a remote family-owned 100,000-acre horse and cattle ranch nestled in the foothills of the Andes. It is a vast expanse of land in Patagonia, stretching across leagues of high steppes, river valleys, grazing meadows, and jagged cliffs, into the very heart of the Argentine cordillera. Ranquilco’s western boundary borders Chile—the high country—graced with lakes, waterfalls, condors, hot springs, and weeks of wandering.

Estancia Ranquilco has a range of accommodation options to fit everyone’s style. Three private cottages clustered around the main lodge—The Castle Room, Dossie’s House and The Apartment—are available for guests on our inclusive plans. Each cottage is distinctive in its architecture and furnishings and all have private bathrooms. A range of rustic rooms and cabins are available for self-catering guests on our extended stay or volunteer program. Private kitchenettes and/or bathrooms may be available. In addition there is a home on the property, Estancia Trocoman, that is available for rent.
