Wildlife Area Nature / Park
Admire the striking color of the water at Laguna Azul, a lake located within a dormant volcanic formation in Patagonia. Don't forget to bring a camera along, so you can take pictures of the contrast between the intense azure lake and the steep slopes of the volcano’s crater that surround it. Keep an eye out for various rare birds, including bandurrias and South American ibis, in the area.

  • A place to visit family. You will arrive by car without problems. Possibility of trekking and watching the native fauna. The place has a particular Mystique, fueled by some local legends, but the reality is that the place is barbaro, the view fantastic. Thermo, Matt and camera in hand!

  • It is worth renting a flight flying club Río Gallegos and from there touring the area of volcanoes including Blue Lagoon

  • Very nice place and remains of step if one is traveling to Tierra del Fuego, if possible I recommend carefully down to take pictures.

  • It is a beautiful place that nature offers you to discover the mouth of a dormant volcano. A few meters from national route 3 to bring beautiful images of the area...

  • It is a very rare place and I like. The birds come to eat from your hand, you may spot ducks, swans, etc. Or explore the caves formed. There are many caulkers and fruits can be eaten in January or February. It is not recommended to make fire, because almost all the soil is organic matter and in some places until it is fluffy and appears to float. You must be careful when descending and the emerging demand much effort.
