Meet your guide at hotel pickup in Bariloche, then transfer to a catamaran at Puerto Pañuelo near the luxe Llao-Llao Hotel. Sail across Nahuel Huapi Lake in Nahuel Huapi National Park and admire the gorgeous scenery. Enjoy lunch available for purchase on board, or feel free to bring your own. 

Stop at Victoria Island, the largest of Nahuel Huapi Lake's islands, and disembark at Puerto Anchorena. Follow your guide on a leisurely nature walk through the coniferous forest and learn about trees such as birches, firs, sequioas and aromos.

Visit during the summer months to include a dip in the lake off of Toro Beach or a ride on the chair lift up Cerro Bella Vista (Bella Vista Hill.) 

Continue your catamaran ride in the beautiful alpine lake, then disembark at Quetrihué Peninsula to explore Los Arrayanes National Park. Learn about the arrayán trees, which only grow into maturity on this narrow isthmus of land near Villa Angostura. Stroll along the walkway here to admire the hundred-year-old trees with cinnamon-colored bark. View a small, singular cabin in the middle of the forest, as well as some pudú, a species of miniature deer.

After a full day of adventure on the lake and in the forests, return to Bariloche for drop-off at your hotel.
Itinerary

Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Free

Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Not Included
Stop At:  
Isla Victoria
First, head to Victoria Island, the largest island on Nahuel Huapi Lake, and disembark at Puerto Anchorena. Enjoy a guided walk along several trails through the lush coniferous forest; your guide will show you a variety of trees – both native and introduced – including sequoias, birches, firs, aromos and pines. If you visit during summer months, dip into the lake at Toro Beach if you’d like, or take the chair lift up Cerro Bella Vista (Bella Vista Hill), situated 2,950 feet (900 meters) above sea level and flanked by enormous coihue and cypress trees.

Admission Ticket Free
Stop At:  
Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes
Next, disembark at Quetrihué Peninsula for a guided walk through the arrayán forest in Los Arrayanes National Park – a unique forest growing on the southern tip of the peninsula. A narrow isthmus to the mainland, in which the picturesque town of Villa Angostura resides, joins 2,470 acres (1,000 hectares) that comprise the Quetrihué Peninsula – the only place in the world where the arrayáns grow into full-sized trees. Stroll along 2,000 feet (600 meters) of walkway and admire the singular beauty of the hundred-year-old arrayán trees, whose cinnamon-colored bark is cold to the touch and peels off in flakes, giving the trunk its unique appearance. Depending on the season, keep an eye out for their white flowers and pleasant-tasting purple fruit, popular in Argentina and Chile. Your guide will point out a small cabin built in the middle of the forest, where you might also glimpse the pudú (a miniature species of South American deer) that inhabit the area. The world’s smallest deer, they are said to have inspired the famous Walt Disney character Bambi.

This is an amazing tour if you get the right language guide. The boat ride in the lake is spectacular, the walk through the Arrayan Forest is beautiful. Was a lovely day with plenty of free time to wander around on your own.

Martin A

This tour has to be seriously improved in 2 aspects: 1entrance fees to the Arrayanes National Park should be included in the fare of the tour. As the National Park entrance fee is not possible to be paid by credit card it may be a hassle to pay with cash in a foreign country 2the tour should include meals and/or beverages, as it happens with tours in most countries. Viator could provide as an option to choose between meals and without meals

To startling, the Company emailed via Viator to say they wouldn't pick us up from the hotel. Then they said they d picks up near the hotel, then they picked us up across the road from the hotel. Nowhere on the Viator trip description did it say we would have to pay additional charges, nor did it say that the English speaking guide would only occasionally speak, english. The trip itself was ok, a well run marketing tool with some lovely scenery.

We are truly sorry to read that the tour did not meet all your expectations. The pick-up transfers are only from selected hotels because Bariloche has streets of difficult access for buses. This activity not includes extras fees, we apologize if wasn´t clear enought. We hope to have you back so you can reverse your opinion. We really appreciate your comments as it helps us improve our services. Kind regards.

Our guide Sabestin didn't translate and only explained everything in Spanish; there is no chairlift (been out of commission since 2005; false advertising as the trip was not a "Small-group tour limited to 10 people ensures a personalized experience"! It was more like a sausage factory experience!!

Amanda H
, Nov. 2013
In the tour description on your website, the tour was described as a maximum of 10 people, in a catamaran with an English speaking guide. These we the reasons that I booked the tour. The tour was actually on a huge boat with about 80 other people on it. The guide did not speak English at all. Every instruction and examination was only in Spanish. I was extremely disappointed and felt the tour description on the Viator website did not accurately describe this tour. I felt very mislead by the description on the website and did not get what I paid for.
