Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes, Villa La Angostura

Hike the peaceful trails of Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes, home to 300-year-old arrayan trees, endemic to the Andes. The park was created in 1971 with the sole purpose of protecting the fragile evergreen trees, known for their smooth cinnamon-colored bark and small white flowers. You can hike the 12 km (7.4 mi) from the park entrance to get to the forest, rent a mountain bike, or take a boat ride on Nahuel Huapi Lake. Stroll along the wooden pathway to admire these rare trees, and try to spot foxes, pudus, guanacos, and bush monkeys.

  • Beautiful place, which can be accessed by boat (excursion), or through a ten kilometer hike starting from Villla la Angostura. Recommended place Oara to know, the House of Bambi, where you can enjoy a delicious hot chocolate, with an unbeatable view of Lake Nahuel Huapi.

  • We did the trekking to get to the Arrayanes forest, I recommend it!!! A beautiful, quiet walk is not very difficult, with the sound of the water from the lakes and the singing of the birds. In addition, there are three viewpoints to take pictures at the beginning of the road. A unique experience.

  • We went walking and came back in boat. "Difficult" is the first kilometer and a half that is well on the rise. But there you get to the 3 viewpoints that are incredible, especially the first. Fantastic! Then there are 11 kilometers of the same, lots of vegetation, some myrtle on the island. You arrive and you have about 800 meters of myrtle Forest, which is nice, not the big thing. (More beautiful The small forest of arrayanes in the path of the Municipal Park of Llao Llao). I would have wanted to ride a bike. The difficulty is not much apparently (just take her to the shoulder the first km) do not walk again the 12km or there, would return to the viewpoints and nothing else!!! The beach after the forest is very nice! The catamaran ride too.

  • Easy access, the sidewalks are free to get in. You can take a boat trip to surround the island, get by trekking or even mountain bikes. There are several spots to shoot some amazing views. There are public bathrooms in the entrance.
  • Beautiful place, we did the one way trip by boat, the return one walking. This is recommended (unless you do both walking) since it is easier. Bring water and something to eat. The forest is just beautiful. It takes about 2 hours to do the boat and the Arrayanes, then about 3 the trekking.
  • I'm sure this park would have been beautiful. We had been excited for weeks for the experience and bussed 4 hours to see it. Unfortunately, they do not advertise that they are weather permitting. If there is even a mild wind and rain the park is closed. We would have shelved it for another day, but sadly we had scheduled it on our last day in the area. The ladies at the desk advised us of other things to do nearby (there's not much) so we wasted time until our bus departure later that night. I am sure it is a wonderful experience, however I advise you to check the weather forecast before scheduling your trip.
  • Plan a day tour on bike ( 12 km ride) and back on a boat or vice versa form Villa La Angostura or form Bariloche city on the Nahuel Huapi Lake. The bike trail is adventurous and for children over 12 and trained bikers, I would suggest. The views are amazing and the beach where you finish has this tree specimens ( Arrayanes) autoctonous from the National Park, very orange-like branches and trunk, cold and covered in a soft coat.
  • Excellent trail and easy. Its 12 km with nice nature and in the end can visit bambi's house
