This famous tour from San Martín de los Andes to Villa La Angostura displays some of the best Patagonian landscapes


Lakes and forests at their best, the Seven Lakes Route, also known as Seven Lakes Road, is one of the most famous touristic circuits in the Argentinian Patagonia, located in the area known as the "Lake District".

It is a 110 Km. stretch of route, that links the towns of San Martín de los Andes and Villa La Angostura, both in the Neuquén province, covering the south sector of Lanín National Park and the north of Nahuel Huapi National Park.

The route passes by lakes Lácar, Hermoso, Falkner, Villarino, Traful, Correntoso, Espejo and Nahuel Huapí, as well as by other minor lakes. Together with the lakes the other big attraction of the route is that it goes through the beautiful Andean-Patagonian forest, dominated by native species like the different Nothofagus (Roble Beech, Antarctic Beech, Chilean southern Beech and South American Beech) and others like the Cordilleran Cypress and the Radal.

Itinerary

Arrayán Viewpoint
Arroyo Partido
Vullingñanco Waterfall
Lake Machónico
Lake Hermoso
Lake Falkner
Lake Villarino
Lake Correntoso

Back to San Martín de los Andes

Alternatively we can sail to the Quetrihué Peninsula a visit the Arrayanes (Myrtle Tree) National Park. That would add 3 hours more to the tour.

During July and August the road might be closed due to the snow. If that is the case we will do an alternative tour.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Cruise Ship Port, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building, Suggested by Guide: I will pick you up at your hotel in San Martin de los Andes

Duration: 7 hours

Times are approximate, depending on the number of stops and the length of those. I want you to tell me everytime you want to stop to see anything in detail or take any picture, I will stop as many times you want, providing it is a safe place to do so.

If you want to include the visit to the Arrayanes National Park that takes 3 hours more so the total duration would be 10 hours.
