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 station near the start of the Lago Azul trail. It is very peaceful here.

The staff is great, the common areas are great, the sleeping rooms are great and the food it great. Can't recommend it enough. It is very peaceful here.

This is an outstanding lodge. The friendly and personable staff are so helpful, knowledgeable, and caring. This place is rich in history and the blue lagoon walk is challenging and breathtaking!!
I’d recommend this place anytime!!!

Our first night at Helsingfors, they cooked a special asado of scrumptious lamb. We sat eating it in a gorgeous valley by the lake. There was even a rainbow! The next day, we rode horseback up to the Blue Lagoon, and had outstanding ravioli for dinner. What’s not to love here?

I stayed here for two nights as part of a Wilderness Travel group. The grounds, rooms, and common and dining areas all are charming. The first night we had a great lamb roast over an open fire with dining al fresco. The second night we had a lovely four course meal in the dining room, my only complaint would be the most costly wine list of our entire tour by far. Appetizers and pisco sours in front of the fireplace were especially memorable after a beautiful (but wet and chilly) hike to Laguna Azul. Staff are warm and professional and will do their best to help you feel at home. Internet was available, although slow (as might be expected given the location). I had room 5 which was darling, although somewhat small and without great privacy given the main window onto the front walkway from the bedroom. Due to the location (80 km down a gravel road), be sure to stay for at least two nights to make it worthwhile and to soak up the charm of the place.

Room Tip: Room 5 was darling but small and without the greatest privacy

My wife and I traveled Argentina for 20 days on our honeymoon, and our three nights at Helsingfors were the highlight of our trip.

We organized a transfer directly with Helsingfors to get us to the location. I would not recommend renting a car to try to reach the lodge, as you definitely need a 4x4 to cross some of gravel road that you travel for over 70km. As you arrive at Helsingfors, you are immediately stunned by the untouched beauty of the surroundings. Horses run free in the surrounding hills, which added to its charm.

The food was the best we had in all of Argentina, and that is after dining at some of the finest restaurants in Buenos Aires and Mendoza. You will not go hungry either, as they make sure to feed you well as there are no alternative options around for 80km.

The staff was so engaging, and sought to make our stay the most memorable as possible.
This included a room upgrade, champagne surprise....really special thoughts at all times of our trip.

The excursion to the blue lagoon cannot be missed. I suggest taking the horses the first 5km, and finish the last 2k hiking.

It was also so nice to know that almost everything (except alcohol) was included in the price: excursions, food and guides. It really let you relax and enjoy the beauty and helsingfors experience.

Thank you to the entire team that works so hard to make Helsingfors an incredibly special place. Not to be missed.
