The lake's narrow form dominates the valley, with steep hills sprouting right at the water's edge, creating memorable scenery and a contrast between hues of green and blue. See native birds, such as the huala, and fish including perca and trout, in the lake. Explore the surrounding Valvidian temperate rainforest and keep an eye out for mammals, such as cougars and red foxes.

  • We had a day of wind and some rain. Despite the weather, also toured the path of shadows (600 meters) and met La Playita (has lifeguards!).

  • Lake Puelo is beautiful, surrounded by mountains and water of those colors that are usually seen in the patagonia, ranging from deep blue to Turquoise. It has a small jetty and a not very extensive Beach, very wooded, with abundant shade and some trails. There you can hire some boat trips to learn about the Lake and its surroundings. Separate Lake for a little more than one couple of kilometres lies the village of the same name. It is a town that is growing fast, because it shows much offer for tourism. It is very neat and has an air to what was once Villa la Angostura. It is a place to not miss if you have the opportunity, the Lago Puelo National Park, Lake and his villa.

  • Beautiful landscape, the water color is unique. We did the tour boat that is highly recommended. You can spend the day at the beach or hiking.
