Helsingfors

Lago Viedma, three hours by dirt road from El Calafate, El Calafate, Santa Cruz, 9405, Argentina

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.
