This luxurious converted ranch house has an absolutely spectacular location in the middle of the national park on the shore of Lago Viedma. The scenery is straight out of a Lord of the Rings movie, and knowledgeable guides can point out dozens of species of birds; inside, a cozy fire warms the sitting room, friendly staff serve fine food and delicious house wine, and the beds are irresistibly comfortable after a day outdoors. Don't leave without visiting the jewel of Helsingfors, a breathtaking blue lake at the foot of a glacier that's a three-hour hike or horseback ride from the inn.
