During the early 20th 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.

We were there in November, so it was very early in the season. It was such a wonderful and special experience to stay here. If you like being miles away from civilization and surrounded by absolutely stunning scenery, you will like Helsingfors. The rooms are comfortable and have

If you are thinking of booking Hosteria Helsingfors, DO IT!!!!!!!! We had THE most incredible stay here. It is expensive but considering how remote it is and that all food and excursions (and transfers if you arrive/ leave on the correct day)are included, actually very fair.

Pablo and his team have some challenges but try hard to make the stay enjoyable . Milena, Deborah, Justina and our Gaucho Gonzalez ( speedy to his friends) provided a comfortable stay but unlike some of the other places we stayed in the area they just didn’t seem to be genuinely

My first visit here was at the end of 2015. Loved it then and this visit was even better. I was here this time for 2 nights just 2 weeks ago. Helsingfors is in a secluded location on the SW corner of Lago Viedma. Nothing else close by except a small Los Glaciares NP ranger
