Water Sports in San Martin de los Andes

In winter, the main draw of San Martin de los Andes is the snow on Cerro Chapelco. When the ski season is finished, however, and the sun begins to hang a bit higher in the blue, Patagonian sky, it’s the kayaking, sailing, canoeing, and swimming that provide the outdoor adventure. Summer in San Martin de los Andes is defined by days at the lake, where locals and visitors all line beaches tucked neatly in pebble-strewn coves. At a popular beach like Quila Quina on the shores of Lake Lácar, hire a kayak or two-man canoe to explore the forested shoreline. Or, when the wind picks up in the afternoon, experienced visitors can either windsurf or kitesurf across the cobalt waves. Farther from town, get a shot of mountain adrenaline while rafting the Hua Hum River, or test your luck at fly-fishing on the legendary Chimehuin. At some point during your stay in San Martin de los Andes, carve out a day to simply cruise on Lake Lácar or Huechulafquen, where hidden islands and empty beaches just add to a landscape that’s already borders on the “pinch-me-this-can’t-be-real.”
