“Depending on the time of year you visit you can either be skiing or playing polo – this really is 2 destinations in 1!”
The Lake District… Snowy Andean peaks, majestic deep blue and emerald lakes fed by an infinite number of ice-cold rivers, never-ending forests home to deer, puma and the Andean condor make up some of the most beautiful postcards in Patagonia, and for that matter, the world. Bariloche, Villa La Angostura, San Martín de los Andes are all havens of natural beauty, a delight throughout the seasons, offering activities for all the family all year round, from walking to water sports, horse-riding, paragliding and skiing.
Bariloche is one of Argentina’s main tourism centres, offering a wide choice of activities which promise an unforgettable experience of nature at its most unspoilt. Nestling in the heart of the Nahuel Huapi National Park, the city has a hotel and gastronomic infrastructure with a long history of hospitality, where you can enjoy Swiss fondue, hand-made chocolates and a succulent variety of wild game from deer to boar washed down with the excellent Argentine wines that have made a name for themselves the world over. From the city you can explore the mountains and lakes on foot, bike, canoe or horseback as well as discover the myths and legends which are so much a part of Argentine colonial history.
