Overview

It’s part of Patagonia, but with a touch of Switzerland or Scandinavia. Argentina shares a picture-book-perfect lake district with Chile on the other side of the Andes, linked by one of the continent’s most exquisite passes, the Lakes Crossing.  It’s a popular yet unspoilt region of sleeping snow-stifled volcanoes, dark sapphire lakes fringed by dense forests, small Alpine-style towns and scenic drives. Its multitude of national parks offer outdoor activities from hiking to fishing and cycling to horse riding. There’s a European-style cuisine of fondues, creamy cakes and cool blond Bavarian-inspired beers.

Where to go when - our guide to Argentine lake district

Lake District Argentina

The weather in Argentine lake district is wide and varied

This region of snow-dipped volcanoes, sapphire likes and dense alpine forests is linked to the Chilean lake district by the Lakes Crossing, one of the continent’s most stunning passes. During the months of December - February, the Alpine-esque towns bustle with visitors enjoying the summer weather, which is at its warmest and driest. The autumn colours of March - May and the blooming wildflowers of September - November in the national parks are exquisite, with fewer visitors as temperatures cool down. The winter ski season runs from July - August.
