A wonderful place to visit while in Argentina or Chile. I have been there in early winter - not the right time definitely, due to the conditions of the unpaved road and to the closure of most trekking trails. Nonetheless I have enjoyed it a lot. It is highly advisable to stop at the info center in Villa Futalaufquen to... More

We came here to visit the ancient (4500 years old) Alerces tree. Unfortunately it was New Year's Eve and the boat (the only access) was not sailing. Nevertheless, the time spent in the park taking in a few of the shorter trails was simply amazing. Particularly appealing was the short 3 km Lahuan Slitario which is well maintained with many...

Spent two nights at Bahia Rosales campgrounds in the park. A bit pricey at 100 pesos per day but the only site available as there was a mouse invasion in the park and no camping allowed in the "camping libre" areas… Only saw one mouse in two days, no biggy! Great lake views and wildlife, enjoyed the park very much!... More

We hiked above several lakes and enjoyed beautiful vistas. There are several lakes connected by a river. One day we took a boat to a trail leading to a hanging glacier. The park has been left natural, mostly untouched by man.

I had no idea Parque Nacional Los Alerces was so breathtaking. We camped three nights at the Lago Verde camping agreste (paid camping), which was perfect. We paid under $10 for a really pleasant campsite with hot showers and just up from an amazing beach from where we could kayak. We took a gorgeous day hike to the mirador of... More

Before visiting the park we went to the tourist info cente in esquel to get ideas for walking. We were told to ask at the park headquarters which means you have to get off the bus at the first stop in the park. At the back of the office is an a4 photocopy of the park info. We planned to... More

We spent 5 nights visiting the northern section of Los Alerces National Park. Here are some tips! • The drive from Bariloche and the time in Los Alerces was definitely worth doing. You get a sense of the raw beauty of Patagonia. The rivers, lakes and mountains open your senses and give a feeling of breathing room that encourages rejuvenation.... More

Beautiful series of glacial lakes connected by fast-flowing rivers. Wonderful trout fishing and good hiking trails. We stayed at the beuatiful Lago Verde Lodge (El Aura).
