  • The Arrayanes National Park in the only national park that is located within other national park: the Nahuel Huapi. Its 12 km travel is very cute, all for the indoor of the Quetrihué Peninsula. At the end, the famous forest with across a wooden footbridge of 800 meters that takes you to turn around. But the view more beautiful, it is obtained from the viewpoint of Bahia Mansa, toward the beginning or end of the road (depends on where you begin to walk)

  • The ride consists of traversing the quetrihué peninsula up to the forest of the MyrtleS. There is a Lake next to the forest and the landscape is incredible, full of peace. Really worth doing it but you have to take into account that there are 12 km of ida and 12 lap if you want them to be walking. If not, you have to get the boat ticket before and make sure it's not breaking. The trail has a difficulty low except for the two first km up to the viewpoints that are more "mountain" and above all can give some vertigo if you are loading the bike. I recommend to go with time and knowing that the two first km of the trail are a little rougher. I walked back and forth but it would be a good idea to walk and return boat or vice versa. The forest is incredible and viewpoints also.

  • It's a beautiful walk, already did several times, is cute to make a stretch by boat and another walk, both have their charm. Boat is interesting to do the road by two bays.

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • Beautiful park. Really nice to ride a bike through the whole park. Lindisimo para andar en bici!
  • Fantastic natural beauty. We took ferry to the end of the park and walked the 12km back. It's not a taxing walk. Take some water and snacks with you and enjoy the views.
  • Hermoso parque para recorrer. Lindas playas
