Indulge in alpine bliss in the enchanting Lake District

Prepare to be captivated by the majestic lakes, snow-dusted peaks, wild meadows, and lush forests that adorn this picturesque region.

At the heart of the Lake District is the bustling mountain town of Bariloche. Often compared to Switzerland for its Alpine essence and beautiful landscapes, Bariloche sits gracefully on the shores of the stunning Lake Nahuel Huapi, surrounded by towering peaks that reach heights of over 2000 metres. This charming town not only offers a magnificent setting but also serves as an ideal base for a wide range of thrilling activities. As you stroll through its streets, you'll encounter delightful cafés, superb restaurants, and a chocolate lover's paradise. Yes, Bariloche is known as the chocolate capital of Argentina, where every corner boasts chocolate stores filled with handmade delights in every shape and size imaginable.

During the summer months, the options for adventure are endless. Brace yourself for exhilarating white-water rafting along the rushing rapids of Rio Mansa, embark on a horse-riding journey through the Andes or set out on invigorating hikes through the ancient emerald forests of Nahuel Huapi National Park. For the intrepid souls seeking a remarkable view, conquering the summit of Mount Bella Vista will reward you with blissful panoramas. Marvel at the crackling glaciers and cascading waterfalls in Tronador Valley, where pristine landscapes await your exploration. And after a day filled with discovery, indulge in well-deserved relaxation by soaking in the soothing thermal springs.

When winter arrives, Bariloche transforms into a true wonderland, attracting skiers and snowboarders from far and wide. With countless opportunities for exploration and activities offered year-round, there's something for everyone in this enchanting destination.

Not far from Bariloche lie the charming towns of Villa la Angostura and San Martin de los Andes, surrounded by a tapestry of lakes, rivers, waterfalls, and mountains. These delightful towns offer a plethora of activities to enjoy, including salmon fishing, trekking, and mountaineering. Connecting these towns is the renowned Road of Seven Lakes, a route celebrated for its pristine beauty. Along this scenic road, which traverses the Lanin National Park and Nahuel Huapi National Park, you'll be treated to incredible views of seven magnificent lakes and endless enchanting forests. Exploring this route is undoubtedly one of the best ways to discover the natural wonders of the Lake District.

Exploration of the Lake District is made stress-free by its extensive and well-maintained road network. A self-drive adventure allows you to immerse yourself fully in the region's charm. And why stop at Argentina's Lake District when you can seamlessly cross into Chile's Lake District? Combining the two countries allows you to uncover some of the most awesome scenery the region has to offer.
