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. Make Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes a part of your Villa La Angostura vacation plans using our Villa La Angostura trip itinerary planner.

  • Very nice Park trees. We made the trip twice. Carried out by boat and there is another option that can be made in bisi or walking.

  • This forest of Arrayanes is located within the peninsula of Quetrihue. While these individuals are technically shrubs, in this forest acquire shape and size of trees and the amount that is there, make it a unique place and certainly magic. Exemplary son whose trunk has a Tan very defined but its particualridad is that to the touch he checks that are very cold, product of its crust is very thin. Worth to see. If they go to the Argentina Patagonia, Bariloche or Villa La Angostura, can not miss this experience, which is accompanied by a navigation by the beautiful Nahuel Huapi Lake.

  • “What A Trip And What A Long Walk That We Did! Wow! Amazing!” Back on Monday, May 15, 2017, I decided to walk about 12 kilometers (approximately 6 miles) to visit the Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes out in Neuquen, Argentina just outside of Villa La Angostura. I was very lucky to also meet Facundo Ragonese and Elizabeth Algarin who were a Very Big Help to ME since I hate walking, hiking or trekking alone. They were so much fun to be with and they made the four (4) hours of walking time More Enjoyable and Inspiring. We saw lots of trees, birds, mushrooms, flowers and even a Lake during our very long walk. At the very end of the walk we took a small motor boat back to the Puerto. If You like to walk or hike or trek, then please come and visit this park and Yes, there is a fee to enter the park which I believe is 250 pesos ($16.00 U.S. dollars). Thank you. Sincerely yours, Howard Paul Shore Visitor Executive, Volunteer Writer For Google And Tripadvisor Websites /HPS PS: I also briefly visited the exact same place, but just at the very beginning back on Sunday, May 14, 2017 as well!
  • Breath-takingly pretty. There's a small fee for entrance and access is closed during high winds due to the risk of tree branches falling and injuring people.
  • Great fascinating lovely place... to reach the furthest corner of the national park there is a nice walk of about 10 km where I strongly suggest to hire a bicycle for those better fit.
  • Wish I could have spent more time here! There is a really amazing boardwalk that goes through a section of the forest with several large Arrayán trees that are native to the region. I spent too much time looking at the trees so I didn't get a chance to eat at the Huaiquil restaurant on the island. The desserts looked amazing!
  • Stunningly beautiful.

Where to stay in Villa La Angostura

Villa La Angostura's increasing popularity with winter sports enthusiasts from distant corners of the world drives up hotel room prices at the height of the ski season in July and August.

Budget travelers can take advantage of economical hostels or try one of the area's campgrounds--arguably the best way to stay close to Angostura's natural attractions.
