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.
San Martín de los Andes
Lake Nahuel Huapí
Villa La Angostura where we will have lunch and visit the town center and the harbors by the lake
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.

Times are approximate, depending on the number of stops and the length of those, that is totally at your discrection. I want you to tell me everytime you want to stop to see anything in detail of 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.

Jose picked us up on time in San Martin and did a great tour of the 7 lakes. We made it to Bariloche on time for dropoff. Overall the trip was fantastic, vehicle was comfortable, good driving speed and not reckless. His English is fluent too.
