  • It is a place to which to discover a diversity of colours and shapes in the wonderful landscape. Mirrored Lakes and spectacular views of Mount Tronador. At the end of the tour by a boardwalk where you're bordering the river destination where the great mass of water falls leading to the majestic waterfall of the larch! Without words... Council... Close your eyes and hear the sounds that nature gives us!

  • The beautiful waterfall has to be visited along with the Cerro Tronador and Black Ventisqueiro. A lot of people are confused on the way, so here's a summary of the script: just take the Ruta 40 and turn right on wooden plaque indicating Los Alerces and Cerro Tronador. Take route 82, and a few kms after will come to the entrance of the Nahuel Huapi National Park and the bifurcation in which the tourist will have to choose between continuing on the road that leads up the Hill and the Ventisquero or take the Route 81 and visit the Cascada Los Alerces. The two routes are narrow, one-way and predefined schedules have to access. The Cascada Los Alerces is about 30 miles from the park entrance and the road gets released, double-parked, from 9:00. The back is released as 11:00 in the morning and, after passing the bridge over the river Tame, have to turn left to take the 82 Route and will be more 40 km to Cerro Tronador. Tour not to be missed!
