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.

  • The Park offers spectacular views. The way to get to the forest of Arrayanes (which is located at the end of the tour) is about 26 km round-trip (13km of ida and 1e km return) and you can be covered on foot or by bicycle, for which it is advisable to take precautions depending on what you choose. At km 9.5 there is output to the Patagua Lagoon which is very nice to bathe and rest a little travel. Also is you can access it directly at catamaran.

  • This is a really nice, unique place. You got two boats that takes you to the end of the park. The big one, it's huge and crowded, and I don't think you get to experience and appreciate the quietness a...  more »

  • We arrived mid-afternoon and didn't have a lot of time so we only did the first 1km up to the mirador (lookout) which is free. You have to arrive before 2pm to do the longer trail through the park for which there is an admission fee. I'm glad we did it the trail was steep but the view from the mirador was spectacular.
  • Rent a bike in Villa la Angostura and go for a 12 km ride in the park. Full of ups and downs and beautiful. Bring a packed lunch. By bike it should take you 4 hours or so.
  • There's a free km trip. And a longer 13km visit that's paid
  • “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!
  • 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.

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. Summer (November to February) is equally popular here, and most single rooms book up months in advance. 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.
