    What to Expect
    Begin your day's adventure with pickup at your hotel in Bariloche. From there, transfer to Puerto Puerto Pañuelo, located just 15 miles (25km) outside of town. 

    Step aboard a boat and sail out into Lake Nahuel Huapi; be sure to have your camera handy for views of Nahuel Huapi National Park's landscape. After 30 minutes of travel on the water, go ashore in Puerto Anchorena on Victoria Island.

    Choose to hike with the guide or on your own in Arrayanes Forest. Walk to Patagua Lagoon to see the pebble beaches, head for the Balcony on Cerro Bella Vista, explore the former National Nursery Trail or discover the ancient Cave Paintings. 

    Visit a picturesque rustic cottage deep in the Arrayanes Forest, said to have inspired Walt Disney as he created the setting for the movie Bambi. Enter the cottage for a tea and snack or to purchase handicrafts and souvenirs. At the end of the trail you will find a Visitor Center where you can visit with the national park rangers. 

    Return to Bariloche the way you came; your tour ends with hotel drop-off.

    Packed boat trip. Efficient operation! Nice stop on Victoria Island (2 hours). Lovely and peaceful place. Stunning views of the lake and the Andes. Rain forest walk was a little underwhelming - so many people!

    Even though it was all in Spanish (which meant I really got to practice my listening skills) this was still a fantastic trip filled with beautiful. The guide was very knowledgeable, I even managed to learn a few things with the language barrier.
