Water Body
Discover an impressive and inviting body of water in an unblemished area of Andean Patagonian forest at Lago Steffen. Go for a swim amid pristine wilderness in the glacial lake, whose surface area covers 5.9 sq km (2.3 sq mi). You won't find any shops or restaurants at the lake, so take the opportunity to snap pictures of an area of the world completely untouched by humanity. Because of the complete lack of local services, don't forget to bring plenty of water and food for your trip. A visit to Lago Steffen represents just the start of the adventure when you use our San Carlos de Bariloche vacation planner to plot your vacation.
