Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes – Villa La Angostura, Argentina

Before we embarked on a driving tour of the seven lakes that extend from Nahuel Huapi at the south to Lago Lácar and San Martin de Los Andes to the north we decided to spend a day hiking through Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes, a small park that encompasses the entire Quetribué Peninsula on Lago Nahuel Huapi. The park was designed to protect cinnamon-barked arrayán trees. To get to the southern end of this park we embarked on a passenger ferry and then hiked three to four hours back to the beginning of the peninsula.
