Argentina, a huge country in South America and the eighth largest globally, boasts varied landscapes, ranging from icy glaciers in Tierra del Fuego to lush rainforests in Iguazu.
As we explored the country, we got to know many hotels, lodges, and ranches spread across Argentina’s different areas.
These ten hotels really catch our eye because of where they are, the great services they offer, how unique they are, and how warmly they welcome guests.
Nestled within a beech forest on a massive 50,000-acre cattle ranch called Cerro de los Pinos, Tipiliuke is a cozy lodge with just nine rooms. This ranch has been around since 1909, and today, the descendants of the original cowhands, known as gauchos, still work the land. The Tipiliuke property is bordered by the Chimehuin and Quilquihue rivers, which together stretch for 17 miles. These rivers are famous for their clear waters and are a prime spot for trout fishing, with some of the fish growing up to a huge 30 inches.
Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced angler, you can get guides, fishing equipment, and boats for a fun fishing experience. But that’s not all – at Tipiliuke, you can also enjoy horseback riding, biking, hiking, and even wing-shooting adventures.
This Argentinian hotel features:
Indoor and Outdoor Dining Areas
Tipiliuke’s nine comfortable guest rooms are adorned with handmade fabrics, ceiling fans, and cozy radiant heat. You can stay connected with Wi-Fi available all around the lodge, even at the outdoor sitting spots.
