Los Notros Argentina
The frozen wall of the Perito Moreno Glacier forms the backdrop to Los Notros. This rigid river of ice – which ruptures and refreezes – can be climbed on foot, scaled with crampons or seen by cruising the Brazo Rico waterway, past icebergs that have flaked off over time. If all that sounds too taxing, admire it from the comfort of one of 32 guestrooms at the lodge. Sybarites can indulge in gourmet food at the restaurant, which serves duck, trout and terrines with 150 Argentinian wines.
