A private driver takes you along Lago Viedma to Hosteria Helsingfors (which is still in Los Glaciares) for three days of hiking, riding, wildlife watching, and appreciating great food and hospitality. Stunningly nestled in a “Lord of the Rings” setting, the intimate hostería offers panoramic views of the lake, Mount FitzRoy, and the Andes Mountains. 

Days 9-12: El Calfate, Perito Moreno Glacier

A driver takes you back to El Calafate, your next base for adventure.
