Exclusive Argentine Estancia
Founded by Finnish explorer Alfred Ranstrom during an expedition to Patagonia at the turn of the 20th century, Estancia Helsingfors offers a one-of-a-kind lodging experience on an exclusive Argentine estancia surrounding by the stunning landscapes of Lago Viedma and the Patagonian Andes. Situated more than 180 miles from El Calafate, this charming nine-room country lodge presents guests with an off-the-beaten-path Patagonian experience reminiscent of centuries past.
Gaucho Way of Life
During the day, guests at Estancia Helsingfors may trek to the remote Laguna del Morro or horseback ride on docile horses to spectacular viewpoints with a resident gaucho guide. Evenings at Estancia Helsingfors are often spent at the lodge with a glass of small batch boutique wine in hand by the fire, or outside watching the parrillero prepare regional delicacies over an open flame. Many of the regional dishes served for dinner are infused with home-grown ingredients from the local organic garden.
