Fodor's Review

Named for the mountain that towers above the wild landscape only 25 km (15½ miles) up the road, this stone-and-log lodge on Lago Mascardi has been owned by the Vereertbrugghen family since 1929. The main attraction, not surprisingly, is a visit to Monte Tronadór. You can walk up to its glaciers or trek through the forest to waterfalls that tumble from the frozen snow above; ambitious hikers can climb to a refugio and return in a day.
