  • The Lake was one of the most beautiful landscapes I saw! Throughout the tour, crystal clear water lake where the mountains are reflected is enjoyed. Beautiful!

  • We went on excursion from San Martín de los Andes. Huechulafquen means Lake in mapuche language, being the largest in the National Park. Arriving at Lake Paimún don't forget to visit the chapel María Auxiliadora, is really very nice. From Puerto Canoa leaves a catamaran to sailing. There we can have lunch at a parador while we look at the Lake. The prices are normal. Also hike along the forest path and by the volcanic sandy beach with good views of the southern slope of the volcano. It is a place not to be missed!

  • We enjoyed the family rides and around this great Lake, until you reach the fantastic view of the Lanin volcano. Water is naturally cold, but a bathroom is gratifying in that total transparency.
