What You Can Expect

Nahuel Huapi Lake Sightseeing Cruise with Victoria Island and Arrayan Forest Nature Walk

Explore Nahuel Huapi Lake

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 for an hour while admiring 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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2017

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.

It was a great trip, although -- the tour was all in spanish-- and my husband did not get background history of the tour as it was not translated in English- I had to provide the translation. Beautiful scenery!

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better March 2016

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.

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!!

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.
