El Bolsón, located in the far west of Argentina near the Chilean border, is a charming and outdoorsy town popular with nature enthusiasts and backpackers. With gorgeous hiking opportunities, all sorts of locally-made foods, and a down-to-earth sensibility, it’s no wonder that it’s a popular holiday destination for Argentinians and foreigners alike. Read on for the top seven hotels to book in El Bolsón.

Cabañas Los Teros

Just a few minute’s drive from downtown El Bolsón, and close-by to a myriad of hiking trails, lakes, and other natural wonders, this hotel is a peaceful and comfortable home base. Each cabin has its own kitchen, fireplace, and parrilla, and the grounds have everything from a swimming pool to a playground to hammocks.

Comarca Hotel

Located conveniently on the town’s main drag, this upscale hotel is spotless, well-kept, and has a cheerful and helpful staff. Best of all, the view of the nearby mountains, among which El Bolsón is nestled, is spectacular.

La Casa del Viajero

For a well-catered stay, La Casa del Viajero is your place. The private kitchens are stocked with ingredients, breakfast is brought to your cabin each morning, and the owners are happy to give advice on hiking trails and local travel tips and even pick you up at the town’s bus terminal upon arrival.

Buena Vida Social Club

This stunning guesthouse offers breathtaking views of the town and surrounding mountains, as well as a tranquil and welcoming hotel environment. Owners Horacio and Kitty are knowledgeable and helpful, and Kitty’s cooking is healthy and delicious.

La Confluencia Lodge

A lovely and eco-friendly resort just a short drive from town, La Confluencia is a sprawling complex built overlooking a river, and is also a working farm— the produce from which often makes its way into the dishes served at the onsite farm-to-table restaurant. Getting close to nature is easy in such a delightful setting, particularly when there are a multitude of cycling, hiking, and riding trails in proximity.

Cabañas Las Nubes

Independent types will love this lodge, which offers private bungalows with their own self-catered kitchens and laundry areas. The views of Currumahuida hill and Piltriquitron hill are enough to take any visitor’s breath away, and the lodge is only a few miles from Puelo Lake and from the Perito Moreno hills, making it an ideal base camp.

Las Nalcas Mountain Resort and Spa

This boutique hotel is surrounded by verdant forest, and the luxurious spa facilities use natural mountain water. Guests can choose to stay in a suite overlooking the forest, or in a private cabin on the estate. Don’t skip out on spa-time though: with a sauna, solarium, massage treatments, and a leisure pool, it’s worth taking some time to relax.
