Argentine lake district: Forests and islands of the southern lake district

Visit Us

Forests and islands of the southern lake district

This is one of our favourite day trips in Argentina’s lake district, allowing you to appreciate its outdoorsy pleasures from the vantage point of a boat as well as up close on scenic forest trails.  

First you’ll sail for half an hour across the cut-glass surface of Lake Nahuel Huapi to Isla Victoria, a breathtaking island mantled in emerald foliage. Evergreen cypress, spruce, pine and monkey puzzle trees give shelter to a variety of birds, as well as deer and wild boar.

Taking to the lake once more, you then cross to the myrtle forest of Bosque de Arrayanes, a fairytale wood of tangled cinnamon branches.
