Estancias are a key part of the Patagonian heritage and lifestyle and the estancias in Torres del Paine are a great base from which to explore the region on horseback. However, for those less inclined to spend their trip on a horse, estancias are best used for a short, one-night stay after a tiring W Trek, on your way to the next stop of your adventure. They provide an interesting feel for the cultural ways of the locals for a day or so but most people tend to move on after that.
Estancia Cerro Guido is the biggest in Torres del Paine with 101,000 hectares of land. This working estancia has the peace and comfort of a hotel, but with the character of a traditional estancia. You will sleep in houses that display their heritage of the Chilean farmers who once lived in them. A beautiful location on the border of the national park, where you can enjoy horse-riding, a Patagonian BBQ or simply explore the grounds of the estancia.
