Estancia Alicura is located in the northern part of Patagonia, Argentina east of Bariloche. Patagonia conjures up thoughts of exotic adventure and an untouched nature that few are privileged to experience. For centuries, this amazing land of Ice Age-created lakes, Alp-like mountains and unique wildlife was the home Indian tribes. In the late 1800’s, Europeans colonized the area with sprawling estancias and charming towns, like Bariloche.  Gauchos still ride horseback over the 200,000 acres of Alicura. But the estancia is hardly old-fashioned; this colonial ranch boasts 19th century charm and 21st century luxury.
