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.

  • I made the boat ride, leaving Villa La Angostura. The tour of the Lake is beautiful and the Park is wonderful, very well maintained, the trunks of trees typical of the region are orange. Worth the hot chocolate and the pies in a canteen in a beautiful Chalet which lies within the Park.

  • Visit the book of arrayanes is a captive of Villa the Angostura. He forest is magic, a place full of peace where is can perceive them sounds of the wind between the trees and the singing of them birds. I recommend walking from the beginning, in the port, and return by catamaran, on the last lap (19:30 in summer). Go well early for the walk at ease, unhurried and relaxing and admiring all the points and viewpoints. Always remember that we are in a National Park: not to carry pets, not to leave trash, not boot either leaves or plants and take care of this beautiful forest so that generations can enjoy it.

  • Is a place unique. Is a walking long to arrive. It seems that just 13 km can be so long. Perhaps is suitable arrive in catamaran and the descent make it to foot.

  • 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
