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.

  • Is a ride forced is can go and return in boat which is costs, or go walking (it recommend) and return in boat, when went this second time not is was in equal State of conservation that the previous time, due to the wrong management from the Park national with the motive of eradicate the ash deposited in them barks of them trees a pity, the color was not the same, anyway is a very nice circuit, my recommendation is to take the small private boats leaving more expensive than the big catamaran.

  • Highly recommended, in my opinion the best option is go by boat and walk back. The Futaleufú Catamaran sails from the port of the Mansa to the arrayanes forest. The characteristics of this northern part of the Lake Nahuel Huapi, navigation is extremely quiet and lasts 45 minutes to arrive. Is can enjoy the landscape of the Park national and the coasts of the city of villa it angostura and puerto manzano, them mountains and the cerro bayo. There are other types of boats, but I recommend the catamaran which is very comfortable and has a terrace. In the forest there is a beautiful house for you and a tour of 800 m. of the forest, very scenic, spectacular to take pictures and super easy to walk. On the recommendation, I didn't with navigation, me is enjoying the forest and after a few hours, went walking through the National Park. Was the best option and it enjoy a lot. As for heat, until I got to the water at the beach. Returned road is 12 km away, it is easy, the last kilometer is on rise and they cost more, but calmly in 3 hours walking. I was quiet and it did in 2 hours 40 minutes. You can enjoy much of the landscape and nature. Saw several people that it make on bike, is a good idea, but there are parts where you got that down you of the bike and walk. But becomes more rapid. It is a different experience that I would like to try at the next opportunity. The cost of shipping is $495 round or $650 roundtrip. The entrance to the National Park get $90 for Argentines and $150 for foreigners. Academics, children, residents and retirees pay less. My congratulations. .

  • 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
