  • One afternoon, we visited also the rapids/falls 'Cascada Los Alerces' during our time in the Nahuel Huapi National Park. The directions to the parking lot was easy to cope with, since mid-November very little was going on. From the car park a short hiking trail on boardwalks leads to several viewing platforms. Generally nicely done and especially in sunny weather really enjoyable, but somehow we had imagined something bigger or more spectacular the whole thing. This can be but also because we were already almost 4 weeks in Patagonia before and it witnessed many beautiful natural attractions. Therefore, the bar was just very high...

  • It is not to be missed, it is the fourth time that I visit it. But with rental car, the road is not well, the combs are already not going, make only the Tronador- but worth, have has the sense of transit times-had little people-is beautiful. Don't forget camera photos or video

  • It is a beautiful postal at the beginning of the river tame, typical mountain. During the trip up to that point you can see snow-capped mountains more high than in the 7 Lakes route, since we get closer to the Andes mountain range.
