The restaurant, lounge and bar are all fashioned in a modern scandinavian style offering open indoor spaces and a similar handcrafted look that marries natural woods and glass to achieve equally open and stunning views of the surrounding park.
During the early 20th century, a Finnish adventurer, Alfred Ranström, settled at the foot of the Andes Mountains, on the southweat shores of Lake Viedma. As a memory of his fatherland, he named his estancia after his country's capital city: Helsingfors (Helsinki in Swedish). Here he lived with his wife, Marie Lisau and their children, lightening up this wonderful spot, never imagining that they would be the main characters in one of Patagonia's most touching stories.
The setting of Helsingfors lodge has often been compared to something out of JRR Tolkein's Lord of The Rings stories. It is found on an idyllic piece of land by the lake that is protected by surrounding coniferous woods. The design of the house is intended to blend with, and compliment, the natural surroundings. Guests are invited to sit in the living area around the large fireplace at night sharing stories of adventure as they enjoy a drink from the bar. A well chosen wine cellar compliments the sophisticated regional cuisine that is served at the lodge, and charming, well-appointed rooms welcome guests each night.

Las Torres lies on the foothills of Torres del Paine.

In 1976 he bought the beautiful Cerro Paine ranch, located right at the foot of the majestic “Torres del Paine” mountain range. In this 8 thousand acre ranch, he began his cattle breeding business.
In the early 90´s Mr. Kusanovic and his wife Amor Eliana Marusic, decided to build 9 rooms with a small restaurant to welcome the many tourists arriving from all over the world, attracted by the beauty of the place.
Today, Hotel Las Torres Patagonia is one of the most outstanding in the region and still maintains the principles of its founders: “to share the warmth of the people and customs of Patagonia”.
