I was in Patagonia earlier this month as part of a fabulous vacation in South America. After an incredible four days exploring the Chilean side of the border at The Singular in Puerto Natales (near Torres del Paine) we drove about 4.5 hours north (including the customs stop) to the Argentine side. Just outside of the town of El Calafate, we were lucky to spend 2 nights at Eolo, a very small Relais & Chateau hotel (lodge?) in the middle of absolute nowhere. Except that it is on the main road from El Calafate to the Perito Moreno glacier, the key draw to this area.
- The location on the slopes of a hill affords views that are (again) breathtaking
- Each room has expansive views to the pampa, a few cows, horses, birds & even a local pooch
- The best food of our trip is included, and wine is very reasonably priced.
- The staff was very helpful in arranging our tour to the Moreno Glacier, which is one of the coolest excursion I’ve ever done. (See us in the crampons in the photos?).
More photos of my trip are here on Flickr.
