About Hosteria Helsingfors or similar
During the early 20th century, Finnish adventurer, Alfred Ranström, settled at the foot of the Andes Mountains, on the 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. 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 private bathrooms decorated and designed to combine colors and textures that blend in with the environment. The hotel includes a bar and a dining room with fixed-course meals, nature guides, an extensive selection of regional wines, outdoor barbeque lunches, laundry services, and Wi-Fi access (but no cell phone signal or TVs).
