Hostería Tyndall

Lago Tyndall, , 6170000, Chile

This wooden lodge, often surrounded by flocks of snow geese and other wild birds, has simple rooms with attractive wood paneling. The hallways have dramatic, colonial-era light fittings, which can be seen as either broodingly romantic or just not doing their job; the lodge itself can be noisy—a problem solved by renting a log cottage (good value for groups of four). There's also a more basic refugio with dorm-style rooms that are cheap. Owner Christian Bore is a wildlife enthusiast and bird-watcher; ask him for a tour of the grassy plain looking out toward the central cluster of snowy peaks. Or go fishing—the kitchen staff will cook your catch for free.
