  • We did this with my 9 year old daughter. A unique experience, very nice view to enjoying the greenery and nature. The road at times becomes difficult, but nothing I can not do. It took us 2 hours to do top, and 1 hour and a half in return. Bring water, and cereal bars. Super recommended!

  • It is vital to have repellent and the less certain physical state (I really at this point I have not). Since we got out of the vehicle we already began to accompany a pair of horseflies per person. The first 700 metres are with moderate slope, but then starts a slope very steep up to the top. It is not so easy to stop to rest since there are very few flat places and horseflies do not break. Last kilometer (always rising) increases a significantly the number of horseflies who do not have insect repellent (our case) in addition to fatigue, puts to the test the desire to reach the top. Once above... The prize. An indescribable view of the best that I had the pleasure of seeing. Short break above and down. Tranqui, already without legs all costs more and now down constant is not so pleasant since it burns you legs that work hard to stop you. After hour and a half or two down at the end, the experience is completed. In summary: 1, carry plenty of water (1,5 l for two was little done) 2, elementary a minimum of preparation to not suffer the crossing (5 km from constant precipitous rise) 3, elementary take repellent, our experience would have been thousand times better if it were not for the horseflies 4 the views of both forest and the viewpoints and the top are worth.

  • Cerro Colorado is a classic in San Martin, that has no technical difficulty, yet very snowy, isn't a problem. But in summer, it is ideal for a walk. The path is clear, marked by treads (do not remember which is signposted), leave the cars on route and begins the walk. You have to have 5 hours, as depending on your pace, the climb will take about 3 hours. It is 1800 meters high, but the positive slope is less than 1,000 metres. If you do not dare to go alone, (is recommended to have some experience in orientation and mountain) there are several tour companies that offer you the ride.

Where to stay in San Martin de los Andes

Only a small portion of San Martin de los Andes actually touches Lake Lacar, but it's there that most of the best accommodations can be found. Cozy ski chalets and lodges make up the majority of places to stay here, although a few budget hostels offer something for travelers with limited means. During peak times, the town center can get quite noisy at night. Stay a few minutes out of town for a quieter experience with memorable views.
