Ollie, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

Rustic in character, the hotel has a chalet-like feel to it and its cosy rooms offer great panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The living room has an open fireplace providing an excellent spot to reflect on the days' adventures, and its restaurant serves fine Patagonian cuisine, whilst the bar is well stocked with Argentine wines.

Los Cerros is an ideal base for exploring Los Glaciares National Park which extends over almost 1,800,000 acres of mountains, lakes and forests and contains more than 300 glaciers, including the famed Perito Moreno, and also the Viedma and the Upsala, the largest and second largest glaciers in Argentina respectively.

Guests can choose from a wide range of outdoor activities ranging from guided hiking and horse riding to ice trekking on glaciers and boat trips on Lago del Desierto. These excursions pass through magnificent landscapes, and guests will also encounter wildlife native to the area such as guanacos, flamingos and the majestic Andean condor to name but a few.

Why we love it

Los Glaciares National Park is unique in that all the glaciers have originated straight from the ice cap - the world's largest ice mass outside Antarctica.
