In the Northwest of Argentinian Patagonia, in the Andean region of Neuquén, Río Negro and Chubut Provinces, the magical Lake District dazzles with its extraordinary landscapes, where majestic lakes are followed by impressive mountains, rivers, waterfalls and ancient forests.

Natural vantage points to be astonished with beholding, pleasant hikes across forests and lake shores complete the offer made by this land which, due to its geographical characteristics, is ideal for adventure travel, exploration and discovery. The Lanín and Nahuel Huapi National Parks attract visitors with their unruffled and incredible beauty. From November to April, the leading roles are played by lovers of sport fishing, found in the countless rivers, streams and lakes that resemble paradise.

The harsh winter whiteness and the prodigious explosion of colors in the fall and the summer make this area surprise and seduce visitors all through the year.

Its cities combine the warmth and charm typical of mountain villages with a modern infrastructure and services of international level. San Carlos de Bariloche, San Martin de los Andes and Villa La Angostura are among the most outstanding tourist resorts.

The countless and varied ski resorts and snow parks constitute a great attraction during the winter. Caviahue, Chapelco, Catedral, Bayo, Batea Mahuida and La Hoya offer the possibility to practice all skiing and snowboarding disciplines while you enjoy the best snow in Patagonia.
