Trekking in the Argentinian Lake District

View of Nahuel Huapi National ParkThe verdant Argentine Lake District in the north of Patagonia is argueably one of the most beautiful parts of the region. Outdoor enthusiasts flock here to take advantage of the outdoor adventures on offer and to escape to an authentic, relaxing retreat overlooking some of the region's 20 lakes, the biggest of which is Nahuel Huapi Lake in Bariloche.

Several towns serve as bases for hikes into the nearby national parks in the Argentine Lakes including the hippy town of El Bolson in the south and the chocolate obsessed town of Bariloche in the middle. To get there, fly from Buenos Aires to Bariloche or San Martin de los Andes with Aerolineas Argentinas. 

On this page we'll tell you more about how to spend your time in the Lakes.
