This water lover adores staying at Arakur, located atop Cerro Alarkén, for its fabulous in/out swimming pool and 360º panoramas. Conveniently, the Vinos al Sur wine fair takes place here, too.

After working up an appetite, my reward is the Tierra del Fuego–led tasting menu at Kalma, where the star dish is merluza negra (Patagonian toothfish).
