    The history of Victoria Island, so named by deformation which was given to the name of the Minister of war and Navy Benjamín Victorica. The idea of Aarón de Anchorena when visit in 1909 and amazed with the place requests the Government of the nation begin a stay model Argentine aristocratic families to keep their steps and encourage the population in the area. Few were the years of the usufruct until 1916... where is abandoned. In 1920, a fire destroys plantations, is when the Ministry of Agriculture takes the management and begins with the experimental incubator bringing more than 72 varieties of pine trees from USA, Canada and Europe. Coming the year 1934 that created the Nahuel Huapi National Park and passes to park management. Steeped in history and an incredible place of beauty; where can the tourist browse after learning it to the National Park los Arrayanes peninsula of Quetrihue. A beautiful navigation on Nahuel Huapi Lake!

    The place is a paradise natural absolutely wasted, without any attraction more than walk and see trees species and at the end of the tour, as unfortunate flourish, performing it in a dirty bar, neglected with broken plastic chairs and... Friendly! One goes to the island expecting to find a dream location... Not so unfortunately, the authorities should reconsider the place award...

    The place is nice, but not worth the cost of the boat trip. There's nothing but a beautiful beach and lots of trees.
