Eolo Patagonia’s Spirit Hotel, El Calafate

Embodying the true spirit of Patagonia, from the area’s indigenous roots to the experiences of the first Europeans and Crillo settlers to the modern day traveller, Eolo gives an authentic Patagonian experience. A large country lodge, with 17 suites, Eolo is built in the style of an “estancias”, or ranch, but with all the modern comforts. Not forgetting the fantastic views, you won’t want to leave this secluded, mountain paradise.


Situated in La Anita Valley on the eastern side of Mount Frias, Eolo is just a 50 minute car drive from El Calafate Airport which can be reached by transfer from Buenos Aires. The nearest town is 30 minutes away, so you can enjoy the complete isolation of the ranch. What draws most people to Eolo though, is its proximity to the Perito Moreno Glacier. You can walk around the dazzling natural ice sculpture, exploring the white peaks and paddling across the turquoise waters.

Your room

All 17 of the Eolo’s suites have mind-blowing views across the countryside. For the best vistas, opt for a corner suite where you’ll get dual aspect views. With every comfort, it is the perfect place to relax after a long day out hiking, and if you need something more you can always go down to the sauna for some extra R&R.

Why we like it

With such amazing countryside surrounding every edge of the ranch it needs to be explored. Take advantage of the ranch’s facilities and go horse riding or trekking through Mount Frias and around the La Anita Valley. For exhilarating trips further afield, you can ride mountain bikes around the lakes and along trails, go fishing and kayaking in the lakes or take a guided bird watching tour. But of course the best bit is the unparalleled Perito Moreno Glacier.
