Helsingfors - The Patagonia Luxury Lodge
A unique destination in Patagonia, a place of incredible beauty with exclusive services and a sophisticated regional cuisine Helsingfors make an unforgettable place.
During the early XX century, a Finnish adventurer, Alfred Ranström, settled at the foot of the Andes Mountains, on the SW shores of Lago Viedma. As a memory of his fatherland, he named his estancia after his country's capital city: Helsingfors ("Helsinki" in Swedish). Here he lived with his wife, Marie Lisau and their children, lightening up this wonderful spot, never imagining that they would be the main characters in one of Patagonia's most touching stories. During the 60's, a traditional family from the province of Santa Cruz bought this beautiful land, and since 1995 they have been receiving visitors from all over the world who wish to discover Patagonia through a unique and exclusive experience such as we offer at Helsingfors.
The lodge is surrounded by a majestic natural landscape, protected by lush woods which give way to a panoramic view of the lake, Mount Fitz Roy and the Andes Mountains.
It has 9 rooms with a private bathroom, decorated and designed with an exquisite taste, combining colors and textures that blend in with the environment.
Guests share their experiences around a large fireplace in the living area or enjoying a drink at the bar.
A refined cellar with selected Argentine wines accompanies the delights of a sophisticated regional cuisine.
