Surrounded by the lakes, mountains and forests of Argentina's Nahuel Huapi National Park, Hotel Puerto Blest is a Patagonian wilderness retreat accessible only by water


Enjoy the ultimate hideaway immersed in nature at Hotel Puerto Blest, a boutique lodge set on the peaceful shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi near San Carlos de Bariloche in Argentinian Patagonia. Only accessible by boat, Puerto Blest reopened after a major refurbishment in 2015, which lovingly retained the architectural style and historical charm of the original hotel, built in 1904. Guest rooms offer a cosy sanctuary and wonderful views after a day of exploring the winding nature trails or sailing on the lake. Two onsite restaurants, a guest lounge, and a dedicated relaxation area with a heated plunge pool complete the experience. Enjoy a comfortable overnight stay before continuing your Patagonian Lakes Crossing, or stay a little longer to make the most of Puerto Blest's stunning natural landscape and unique Valdivian rainforest surrounds.
