Estancia El Colibri

Stay at Estancia El Colibri and you’ll gain a glimpse into a traditional Argentinean estancia dating back 100 years. Together with some more modern and equally profound experiences.

Here you can learn to ride a horse from people who have been in the saddle almost before they could walk. You can discover the skills and exhilaration of polo, or trek through the surrounding tracts of untouched wilderness on horseback. Or you can ride a mountain bike across rugged terrain, or walk with an expert guide through a landscape rich in flora and fauna – and watch birdlife that includes iridescent humming birds and wheeling raptors.

Make El Colibri a destination on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Argentina and you’ll also be able to savour the lifestyle of an authentic estancia - built at the turn of the last century - with gabled colonial-style architecture and dark parquet flooring, complemented by modern additions like a swimming pool and spa.
