Create an itinerary including Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes
Hike the peaceful trails of Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes, home to 300-year-old arrayan trees, endemic to the Andes. The park was created in 1971 with the sole purpose of protecting the fragile evergreen trees, known for their smooth cinnamon-colored bark and small white flowers. You can hike the 12 km (7.4 mi) from the park entrance to get to the forest, rent a mountain bike, or take a boat ride on Nahuel Huapi Lake. Stroll along the wooden pathway to admire these rare trees, and try to spot foxes, pudus, guanacos, and bush monkeys. Make Parque Nacional Los Arrayanes a part of your Villa La Angostura vacation plans using our Villa La Angostura trip itinerary planner.

  • We went only to the viewpoints and the two beaches below. Amazing. If you have the possibility and time to rent a bike to make it, it is 11 km long and it is demarcated. Otherwise, you can enjoy viewpoints and beaches near the entrance.
  • The national park features a nice, yet somehow repetitive walk. You can decide to do the full 22km back and forth walk, or just do 11km and take the boat for the rest. A major nuisance is the fact that hikers and hordes of bicycles share the same narrow way, so you can never really walk in peace, but will often be required to jump to the side to not be hit by a bike. There are definitely much better places to go!
