Route of the Seven Lakes connects some of the region's most important bodies of water by road. The 107 km (66.5 mi) route, which connects San Martin de los Andes and Villa La Angostura, winds through Andean scenery of mountains, forests, and waterways, passing through two different national parks along the way. Drive along the road to enjoy sweeping views over the lakes, many carved out by glaciers millions of years ago. Be sure to bring your camera, as you'll find plenty of viewpoints and stops offering panoramic shots of the surrounding area. Though the Nahuel Hapi and Escondido lakes are perhaps the best known, plenty of other smaller lakes also line the route.

  • We loved the drive. Each lake is different and very beautiful. Try to avoid weekends in the summer as the road is crowed and the drive can be slow.  more »
  • This route is worthwhile in any case. Although to my taste is similar to the side Chilean, has many stops and viewpoints in good state (even with information) that make more pleasant the journey.
