This inland lodge sits on the shores of a beautiful lake, Lago General Carrera. Nearby is an immense ice field, the Campos de Hielo Norte, and 13,300-foot Mount San Valentin. We'd say that the Terra Luna Lodge gets full points for location, but, well, don't they all? But we do love this property: Guests have the choice of the main lodge with four "apartments" (two bedrooms and a living room), several separate bungalows, or a stand-alone house. In the heat of summer, it's an ideal setting to put down your travel-jostled bones and muse, Thoreau-like, on nature as you take in the views of the glacier-fed turquoise lake and the ice-carved peaks. Enterprising guests can fish the trout-rich Río Baker or buzz the northern ice field in a small plane, and by night sip a Pisco Sour while frolicking in the waterside hot tub. You can also drive west from the lodge for 30 miles to a knoll where the dense forests of lenga and arrayán open to afford an uninterrupted vista of Mount San Valentín.
