OPENING OCT 2018

All inclusive rates, 3 nights minimum stay.

Where?

Our first hub is located in Argentina's Patagonia, on the Southernmost part of the world. Nearest airport is El Calafate, which is a 3hs flight from Buenos Aires.

If you still need to book your flights, the easiest way is through Despegar. Check your airline luggage allowance, most airlines allow only one 15kg luggage for domestic flights.

From El Calafate airport we can either pick you up (for an additional fee) or you can drive. If you are driving we'll send you the directions with your booking confirmation.

After the 4-hour drive, you will be immersed in an environment you probably never experienced before. The first day you'll arrive exhausted since you have 90km of dirt road but definitely worth it. 

 
Perito Moreno glacier, a must-see during your stay in Patagonia, it is not too far from La Maipu and close to El Calafate airport. Ideal to spend there your first or last night.

OUR Rates

Due to the natural location of La Maipú, makes sense to cover everything. Our rates include all meals (Breakfast, Lunch, Mid-afternoon snacks and Dinner), house wine and one activity per day. This activity can be trekking, camping, bird-watching, fishing, outdoors cooking classes, horseback riding or mountain biking.

Transport is not included in our rates but we can definitely help you sort it.

We have trusted partners who can bring you from pretty much anywhere in Santa Cruz, or Chile, to La Maipú.

Minimum stay is three nights.

THE STORY BEHIND

Besides from the breathtaking views, La Maipú is famous for its history. The Lively brothers were the first owners of this Estancia, actually the first settlers of the area. Mr. Joseph Lively arrived to the Lake San Martin in 1902, thanks to Francisco ''Perito'' Moreno who conceded them the land right before the territorial dispute between Argentina and Chile. Thanks to the Lively family Argentina owns part of the San Martin lake, which flows through Chile into the Pacific ocean.

The current owners of La Maipu kept Joseph’s cabin as a museum. When you visit the cabin it will take you back through time into to the old, and even wilder, Patagonia where just natives and a few adventurous foreigners lived. Come and discover the story of authentic Patagonic pioneers.
