  • Ideal to spend the day, take advantage of the kitchen and camping. Go on a clear day to take advantage of the lanin view from the chapel. The opposite side, with input 1 km before approx. the usual, provides some beaches and beautiful views from the same source of the chimehuin River.

  • The hike begins along Route 61, which is a gravel road which has quite a few loose stones, but you can go not very fast and well. The landscape that can be seen makes it worthwhile. Charge you entrance to the park before reaching the Lake: $130 per person. After a few kilometers you reach Puerto Canoa where for $550 you can navigate with a catamaran with guide by the Lake. 100% recommended. Landscapes seen are spectacular. To see the Lanín in all its glory it is necessary that day this clear well because of the height, any cloud cover it.

  • It is a beautiful place, the colour of the water is impressive. It looks like a sea. Is a Lake of 29 km. something incredible. The Lake Epulafquen and Paimún are very beautiful also. The view of the volcano is wonderful. The gravel road is quite complicated by what should go have truck, since Auto is difficult the road, which is long enough. Are hours of walking on those roads of gravel road
