The lake area

The route of the seven lakes

The snowy peaks of the many volcanoes reflect in the green-blue lakes of this breathtaking nature reserve. The lake area is also called the Switzerland of Argentina. Austrian, German and Swiss migrants built villages and towns in typical Alpine style. But settlements of the original inhabitants, the Mapuche Indians, can also be found. Visit a still working Estancia (estate - livestock) and meet the tough gauchos.

Bariloche is the most famous city of the lake area, located on Lake Nahuel Huapi. The area is ideal for sporting activities such as cycling, horse riding or hiking in the beautiful nature of the Andes Mountains. Taste the excellent chocolate that is made here. And did you know that you can winter sports at Bariloche in our summer?

The lake area is ideal for exploring by hire car. The Circuito Chico for example from Bariloche; this short route takes you past the beautiful lakes Llao Llao, Moreno and Nahuel Huapi. The longer seven lakes route (Ruta de los Siete Lagos) from Bariloche to San Martin de los Andes via Villa la Angostura is particularly spectacular: San Martín de los Andes is a paradise of peace and quiet, beautifully situated in an environment of rivers, waterfalls and mountains close to Lanín National Park with its impressive volcano.
